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.

Amazing and professional team. Highly recommend. We were a group of four 32-37 year old man and woman with 12 and 15 year old girls. Some were a little scared before running into the sky but as soon as we were airborne everybody was calm and haooy :D
