Tandem Paragliding over the Rugged Lava Fields at Blue Mountains
This is a unique experience off the beaten path in Iceland. The tour is semi private as we only take very few people at a time. Expert paragliding instructors walk you through preparations and safety checks before they take off with you into the air. The paraglider has no motor and uses rising air to glide through the sky like a bird.
You need no prior experience. Relax and enjoy the sights as your pilot controls the paraglider and you soar over lavafields just outside Reykjavik. If you feel like it, take supervised control of the paraglider and learn the basics of free flight or ask your pilot to make some extra in-air adrenaline-filled moves.
Escape the other tourists and experience being a free flying bird alone in Iceland.
