Why You'll Love This

What's Included?

If you’ve ever wanted to soar like an eagle and get a bird’s eye view of the world, well, the closest thing to this type of silent flight is with a tandem paragliding flight high over the Victorian alpine high country!

On the day of this extraordinary experience, we’ll meet you at the allocated landing zone. Your tandem flight will be with a six times Australian paragliding champion, so you can feel safe in knowing that you’re in the best possible hands.

We’ll take a short and very scenic drive to the launch site which overlooks the township of Bright. From this stunning vantage point you can enjoy the spectacular views and also learn how to prepare to launch the glider from your qualified tandem pilot, who’ll show you how to set up the paraglider. Before long, you’ll be strapped in and ready for a breathtaking experience. What’s more, your experience will be recorded onto a video so that you can watch your paragliding experience and share it with friends and family for many years to come!

Once you’re ready to go, you’ll take a few steps forward towards the face of the hill and then suddenly, your feet are no longer in contact with the ground. You’re finally experiencing the freedom of silent flight as you soar like a bird for approximately 30 minutes, riding the thermal air beneath you.

This introductory course not only includes your tandem paragliding flight, but is also includes a ground handling session, where you’ll learn how to launch and land the paraglider, which is perfect for anyone looking for a hands-on experience of a lifetime!
