Vík: Paragliding Tandem Flight

1. Vík: Paragliding Tandem Flight

Paragliding is the calmest and safest form of free flying known to man. A tandem flight is performed with an experienced instructor pilot. Once the wing is inflated and safety checks are done you take a few steps down a slope then you step into the air. Tandem paragliding flights vary in duration and it is not possible to guarantee a specific flight time due to the changeable nature of the wind and general weather conditions in Iceland. The times for morning, afternoon or evening take-off are only an indication. Allow +/- 2 hrs in your itinerary and call the supplier the day before to re-confirm as we will be aware of the weather forecast. It is aimed to fly for 10-15 minutes, but if weather conditions are not ideal and the flight might be short, the provider will tell you beforehand. You only when the weather conditions are safe. If conditions are anything less than perfect before take-off, you can wait for them to improve or walk away and try again another time. A full refund will be offered for any flight cancellations due to weather conditions or any other safety considerations. An Introductory Paragliding Tandem Flight is always at your own risk.
