How long are the flights
Trips are 5 – 30 mins.
I know – that is really SHORT!! We do agree. We also prefer longer flights as much as you would. Unfortunately, this is weather dependent. The duration of the flight depends on the amount of lift the weather provides us at the time. This is always changing and therefore flights differ day to day and throughout the day.
If you are wanting a guaranteed flight duration then gliding is just not for you.
Do I get a discount if my flight is too short?
Sorry unfortunately NO.
If you feel the flight duration was too short and would like to go again, we may offer a discount on your 2nd flight.
Can I take my camera up with me Paragliding?
Yes you may. But at your own Risk. We take no responsibility for any loss or damage caused by yourself or to others. Ensure your camera is secured to yourself during flight (requirement)
We offer photos and videos at a small cost. We use a high quality go pro to take all footage of your flight.
You can view the footage after the flight without obligation to purchase the footage.
Once you have landed we will transport you back to where you started from or you can leave from where we land. We can arrange a taxi back to your accommodation if you don't have transport back.
