Paragliding is the simplest and purest form of flying available to man. A tandem flight is an introductory paragliding flight. As a passenger you need no prior knowledge, just come with us 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 down a slope until we step into the air.
Please read the following information carefully before we meet for your flight.
Closed shoes, preferably hiking boots
Warm clothes, it is colder in the air than on the ground. Gloves. A thin hat to fit under your helmet.
Depending on conditions the flight can be anything from 3-30 minutes. We aim for 15-20 minutes, but if conditions are slack and we think the flight might be short we will inform you and you can choose not to fly.
Where we fly from
We will fly from Mount Hafrafell by Hafravatn, a beautful lake,just 15 minutes drive from central Reykjavík. The exact meeting point is determined by the weather conditions. It will take you about 15 minutes to hike up the mountain, this can be thirsty work, so we suggest you have a drink with you.
You can bring your own camera at your own risk.
Your pilot will be equipped with a high definition video camera from which you can get the files.
Please note that we only fly when the weather conditions are safe. If, when we arrive on take-off, and think it’s anything less than perfect we can either wait for conditions to become better or walk down and try again another time.
Paragliding can be a dangerous activity and an Introductory Paragliding Tandem flight is always at your own risk.
