WHAT TIME TO FLY?

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE?

The best time to fly is often in the mornings. Usually the paragliding starts around 8am. Weather/wind can be unpredictable. After all paragliding is a weather dependent activity. To give everyone the best chance to do the tandem flight, it is important to be at the meeting point at the scheduled time.

Best to plan for a half day (morning).

The actual flight takes 10-15 min. You can book longer flights of up to 30min for an additional fee (see RATES).

HOW DO I GET THERE?

Besides using your own transport (vehicle/taxi) there is also public transportation to all locations available but plan extra time. HIGH 5 PARAGLIDING also offers transportation (limited to a maximum of 8 passengers) which can be booked for a fee. Directions to the locations are on the specific pages of each flysite.

WHAT TO BRING?

Expect hot and sunny weather. BRING ENOUGH WATER WITH YOU!

Polyester/trekking pants (shorts, not really recommended due to sharp grasses). Any dry fit (or similar material) shirt for comfort. You can also wear leggings.

Sun protection: hat, sun block, shades, long sleeve jersey.

Outdoor shoes, trekking shoes, trail shoes or running shoes. SLIPPERS STRONGLY DISCOURAGED.

Toiletries: insect  repellant, alcohol, wipes.

Helmet: Will be provided, but if you prefer to use your own you can bring it with you.

Camera or video camera for souvenir shots; smart phone also ok, but make sure not to lose it in flight.

You can rent a GoPro for a fee, if you don't have your own action cam.

RESTRICTIONS

There is no age limit as a passenger for paragliding. But there is a weight range. Minimum weight is 20kg and maximum weight is 100kg per passenger. Flying with very little/light children is not really recommended.

If you feel healthy in general, you are probably fit enough for paragliding. In case you are not sure, please consult your doctor.
