Practical information: Paragliding is a sport entirely dependent on the weather conditions. Therefore the day of flying as well as the place for taking off will be chosen at the last possible minute according to the weather forecast. This means that the day-to-day program might be changed on spot if the instructor decides so and the paragliding will be organized on any other day. It is also possible paragliding to be cancelled due to unfavorable weather. Then on this free day the tourists can do any of the other planned activities – biking, kayaking, riding or mountain trekking.   

We recommend that the participants in this tour know each other or are with similar physical abilities. This will allow a more flexible program, change and specifying the place in accordance with the group’s wishes.
