Paragliding Tandem Flight
Soar Like an Eagle Above Lavafields & Volcanic Craters
Feeling snug in a harness and helmet, attached to your own personal Instructor Pilot who controls the Paragliding Tandem Flight, you take a few steps behind the towing line until you are airborne. Once you reach soaring altitude your Instructor drops the towing line and together you glide silently through the air like a bird!
This is your own personal Paragliding Tandem Flight experience and you can ask your Instructor to fly softly or in acro moves, your choice. Landing á Paraglider is as simple as taking off, touching down with a few steps on the soft ground.
A Paragliding Tandem Flight is an introductory Paragliding Flight. As a passenger/student you need no prior knowledge. Come with us and experience the world from a new and exciting perspective. Once the Paraglider is inflated and safety checks are done we take a few steps until we are walking on air.

WEATHER & CHANGES: Please bear in mind that a Paragliding Tandem Flight is highly reliable on weather. We always put safety first and if weather does not co-operate we will offer you a re-schedule, an alternative or a full refund. Paragliding weather is not necessarily the same as what non-paragliding pilots call good weather. We rely on micro meteorology and need to take different factors into account, like prevailing wind at height, wind on take-off and landing, wind direction, predicted changes as well as the effects of sun, sea breeze and the landscape. With Iceland being a very small island on the brink of the Arctic Circle weather can change faster than anything you’ve seen before. Please make sure we have your email and phone number and make sure to check for any communication from us before heading out. Should we need to make changes to the schedule due to weather we will strive to let you know as soon as possible.
A Tandem Paragliding Flight is a legitimate Introductory flight operated by licensed and experienced Paragliding Instructor pilots.
