Paragliding in Reykjavík, Iceland, with views over lava fields, geothermal areas, snow capped mountains, the city and Atlantic ocean.
Paragliding is the simplest and purest form of flying available to man. As a tandem passenger you need no prior knowledge, simply join our expert Paragliding Tandem Instructors 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 off the ground until we are walking on air! The Paraglider has no motor and uses the rising air to silently glide above the ground with the other birds. Be prepared to have your mind blown!
