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.

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.
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.
TELL EVERYONE HOW AWESOME WE ARE 🙂
