Who has never dreamt of being a modern-day Icarus and admiring the marvellous landscapes from up in the air?
From a paraglider or glider you will be to contemplate the palette of colours spread out beneath your eyes.
What with the intense blue of the mountain lakes and the emerald green of the meadows, you won't be able to decide what to look at.
Paragliders were invented about twenty years ago and are virtually individual gliders.
The wing is derived directly from parachutes, and over the course of the years paraglider wings have acquired their own technical characteristics and personality, with continuous improvements to both performance and safety.
They are now a mature technology meaning that this simplest and most affordable of flying experiences is something everybody can enjoy.
Paragliding - like hang gliding – is a moment of pure pleasure, silence, freedom, and humility.
Accompanied by an officially accredited instructor, the pleasures of paragliding are open to all people of all ages so come and enjoy your trip in the air.
