Lanzarote: Paragliding Discovery Flight with Video

1. Lanzarote: Paragliding Discovery Flight with Video

Your experience begins as you hike with the team for 10 minutes to the take-off site. Once there your guides will run you through the safety instructions, fielding any questions which you may have about your impending glide. Following that, prepare to take off with your professional pilot under a tandem paraglider and fly away. This is a vertigo-free takeoff, not a "jump." You'll soar along the reach to gain an altitude of between 200 to 800 meters, cruising above the ocean for about 20 or 40 minutes depending on the chosen option. Enjoy the views of the islands and the volcanoes from the safety of a harness seat. When possible, you can try steering the glider yourself, as well as try some thrilling wingovers or spiraling sensations. The pilot will capture photos and a short video of your flight with an action camera. Your tour will conclude as you descend gradually and land softly. A few hours after the flight, you will receive a link to download your photos and video.

It was a great experience. I am glad that I manged to overcome my fear and went a head and did it. There are two points to be ready for, 1st get ready to climb as you have to start the activity from the top of the hill. 2nd be prepared if you are someone who gets motion sickness! Other than that, Robert, your pilot is super friendly and knows how to calm you down

Fabulous experience, instructor was lovely and we got to see some amazing spots on the island. Would definitely recommend if you wanted to see most of Lanzarote in 3h!

In the top! To choose with your eyes closed, in addition the team speaks French very well!!! Thanks for this ride!

Very nice experience ... It was the first time and I would definitely do it again and again in the future ...
