Winelands Tandem Paragliding Experience

Winelands

Activity Description

Almost anybody can experience the thrill of free flight by flying tandem with an instructor. It takes just a few minutes to prepare and you’re off, gliding through the air in search of waves of lift with a qualified Tandem Flight Instructor. No previous experience is required. Experience the thrill of paragliding flight by joining us on one of our adventures. Winelands Tandem Paragliding Experiences take place at Mont Rochelle Nature reserve in FRANSCHHOEK, DU TOITS KLOOF PASS and PAARL ROCK near Paarl.
Any of the 3 locations may be booked but where we fly from on the day is determined by the weather and wind direction. If we are not able to fly at your first choice location on the day of your booking, you are welcome to join us at another location or reschedule for another day.
