Winelands Hike and Fly experience

Winelands

Activity Description

The Winelands Tandem Paragliding Hike and Fly experience is a half day adventure experience that combines a hike to the summit of a significant peak in the Cape Winelands and flying down from the mountain in a paraglider with a Tandem flight instructor. No previous paragliding experience is required but the hikes are strenuous and requires previous hiking experience. The experience offers unparalleled vistas of the Cape Winelands and an adventure that can only be described as “life changing”.
The guided hike is less than 4km but up steep trails often over moderately technical terrain and takes two to three hours to complete. We start hiking around sunrise to capture the most beautiful time of the day and to give us the best chance of flying down. The paragliding gear is divided between you and your guide/instructor into backpacks of approximately 7kg each.
At the summit the instructor will assess the weather conditions and if safe, prepare you for the flight from the mountain. There is nothing that can prepare you for the thrilling experience of flying from a big mountain in a paraglider with your instructor. The flight takes us back to the meeting point where we will share the experience pictures and videos with you and celebrate the amazing experience.
