Paragliding Adventure | Fly Over the Greater Reykjavik Area

Join an adventure and view Iceland from a new and exciting perspective as you soar silently above vast lava fields, craters, and vibrant green moss spreads just outside Iceland's capital, Reykjavík. Paragliding is the simplest and purest form of flying available to man. A tandem paragliding flight is an introductory voyage, and as a passenger, you need no prior knowledge or experience. Before take off, your pilot will brief you on the basics; he will teach you how to stand and move, clip you into the safety harness, and equip you with a helmet before fastening himself to you. Once the paraglider is inflated, and safety checks are over, you take a few steps down a slope until you end up walking on air!For up to fifteen minutes, you'll fly high enough to see Reykjavík city from a distance, Langjökull glacier, several volcanoes and you might even glimpse a full 360° view of the horizon. The most impressive sight, however, will be the ground beneath your dangling feet.Landing is very simple. As you near the ground, your pilot slows the glider down, you take a few steps upon landing, feeling like you are stepping down a set of stairs. Alternatively, you can land sitting, with your legs straight in front of you, allowing the soft harness cushion to gently capture your weight. Nothing is more important than your safety. The pilots are rigorously trained and highly experienced through long flying careers in various weather systems of numerous countries, and are constantly updated on the weather forecast. They only use top-notch equipment approved from international authorities, and check, double check and check again to make sure everything is perfect before take-off. So don't wait! Take to the skies with this fun-filled paragliding tour. Check availability by choosing a date.

Paragliding Tandem Flight in Vik

Take to the skies with a thrilling tandem paraglide ride over the South Coast of Iceland. This tour should not be missed by those seeking a shot of adrenaline, without missing out on some incredible sightseeing.No experience is required to join this excursion; you will be in the safe hands of an experienced paraglider who will guide your craft through the beautiful summer skies. This is, therefore, an easy way to add an incredible adventure to your Icelandic holiday.The tour begins when you meet your guide,  who will be waiting with your paraglide, near the village of Vík Í Mýdral on the South Coast. The exact location will be emailed to you the day before you arrive, based on weather forecasts and conditions, but will be no further than forty-five minutes from the settlement.Once here, you will be briefed on how to ride in tandem on a paraglider, as well as told a little about what you will see. Your guide will then inflate your craft, secure you safely, and after a few downhill steps, you’ll take to the sky.The South Coast is incredible from ground-level; from above, it is simply awe-inspiring. The stretch is one of Iceland’s most popular sightseeing regions due to the diversity in its landscapes and features, and an aerial perspective of them is not easily forgotten.While the weather will dictate your exact route, you are very likely to see the beautiful black sand beach Reynisfjara, and the Reynisdrangar sea-stacks that rise just offshore. The Dyrhólaey rock arch may also be on the agenda, as you soar amongst the many birds that nest on its cliffs.Inland, you will hopefully be able to look upon some of the South’s awesome glaciers, such as Sólheimajökull, an outlet popular with glacier-hikers, and the greater Mýrdalsjökull. On clear days, you may even see the largest ice cap in Europe, Vatnajökull, and the notorious Eyjafjallajökull, which erupted in 2010.After twenty minutes soaring above these incredible locations, you’ll make a smooth landing, and be free to carry on your travels.Of course, nature can be fickle, and weather may prevent a tour going ahead. If so, you will be allowed to join another day, and if you do not become airborne on your trip due to conditions, you will be fully refunded.Don’t miss this incredible opportunity to take to the skies over the South Shore of Iceland.
