Tandem Paragliding over the Rugged Lava Fields at Blue Mountains
Paragliding in Reykjavík, Iceland, with views over lava fields, geothermal areas, snow capped mountains, the city and Atlantic ocean.
Paragliding is the simplest and purest form of flying available to man. As a tandem passenger you need no prior knowledge, simply join our expert Paragliding Tandem Instructors and experience the world from a new and exciting perspective. Once the Paraglider is inflated and safety checks are done, we take a few steps off the ground until we are walking on air! The Paraglider has no motor and uses the rising air to silently glide above the ground with the other birds. Be prepared to have your mind blown!

Please bear in mind that Paragliding is highly reliable on weather. We always put safety first and if weather does not co-operate we will offer you a re-schedule, an alternative or a full refund. Paragliding weather is not necessarily the same as what non-paragliding pilots call good weather. We rely on micro meteorology and need to take different factors into account, like prevailing wind at height, wind on take-off and landing, wind direction, predicted changes as well as the effects of sun, sea breeze and the landscape. With Iceland being a very small island on the brink of the Arctic Circle weather can change faster than anything you’ve seen before. Please make sure we have your email and phone number and make sure to check for any communication from us before heading out. Should we need to make changes to the schedule due to weather we will strive to let you know as soon as possible.
