Paragliding in the Soča valley

Before they taught you the rules of logic or the laws of gravity, you imagined you could fly. And you were right.
As a child, you didn’t have to be asleep to dream of flying. It was real.
With us, it still is.

unique

Tandem paragliding is a very unique way to catch your dreams.

It’s quiet, peaceful and gives you a smooth view on the beautiful land of the Julian Alps.

fun

Tandem paragliding is actually a lot easier than it looks.

Once in the air you will be flying for about 25 minutes and if the winds are optimal the guide will let you control the ropes.

safe

Tours are being lead by guides with plenty experience who will take care of your safety and relaxed entertainment. Tandem paragliding does not require any prior knowledge and is suitable for beginners.

How it goes

EXPLORE OUR WEBSITE

And find activities you wish to experience. You can choose between water, land and air sports. Paragliding will take about 3 hours of your time so you can add another activity on the same day. But, if your wish-list is longer you just email us all the activities you’d like to do and we’ll prepare a program for you. Just don’t plan more than 2 activities in one day.

LET US KNOW YOU’RE COMING

Paragliding has to be booked at least 3 days in advance. We need to check the weather and winds to confirm this activity. Then we will also let you know the exact hour of departure.

You can book your trip by

  • filling out a reservation form
  • sending us e-mail on hello@bovec-rafting-team.com
  • calling us on +386 41 338 308
  • sending SMS on +386 41 338 308

DON’T FORGET TO BRING

  • hiking shoes
  • long comfortable clothes
  • water
  • ponytail elastic if your hair is long

COME TO BOVEC

Our sports center is located in Bovec. We have a big private parking lot where you can park your car. There are also toilets, showers, lockers and changing cabins here. Not to mention the chill-out area with free WiFi.

CHECK-IN AT OUR OFFICE

First we will need you to sign a declaration of awareness. Please note that we can’t take on paragliding tour people who are

  • under the influence of alcohol and drugs
  • pregnant
  • physically or mentally disabled
  • blind (you have to be able to see at least something)

Check the list of medical conditions that might prevent you from joining our paragliding tour.

Then we will kindly ask you to pay 🙂 You can pay in Euro or by credit card. VISA, Mastercard, Maestro and American Express are all accepted.

MEET YOUR GUIDES

Paragliding is organized in partnership with sports agency Alpe Šport Vančar. Their instructors will explain all the details about the tour and hand you all the equipment you need.

  • helmet
  • coverall suit

GETTING TO THE MOUNTAINS

There’s a big parking in front of the Bovec Rafting Team sports center. There you will leave your car. You won’t need it until the end of your paragliding tour. We will take you to the take off point on one of the mountains in the Soča valley and then bring you back to Bovec with our vans. The exact location dependes on the winds.

STILL ON GROUND

You will put on a coverall suit and a helmet. Your bags and other belongings will stay in the van. Just before you take off and join the birds in the sky the pilot will also explain the basics of safety. Then he will spread the paraglider on the ground, connect you both with a secure harness to the paraglider and gently pull it into the wind. All you will be asked to do is to run briefly into the wind.

FUN IN THE SKY

After a few steps you will find yourself float gently up into the air. Depending on the conditions the average tandem flight will last between 20 – 30 minutes. You will have the time to take photos and videos and even talk to your pilot. Landings are similarly as easy except in reverse order.

WHEN BACK ON THE GROUND

The vans will already be there. When you’re ready we’ll drive you back to our sports center.

PHOTOS AND VIDEOS FROM YOUR PARAGLIDING TOUR

You can take your camera with you but the use of strap is highlly recommended. During the flight you will have enough time to take photos and videos. Just make sure the battery’s full and memory card empty.

MAKE SURE YOU DIDN’T FORGET ANYTHING AT OUR SPORTS CENTER

Unless it’s a business class flight ticket to Bora Bora. We’ll be happy to keep that. But if you do forget something less exotic just send us an e-mail. We’ll be happy to send it back to you.
