Winelands Cross Country Tandem Flight

Winelands

YOU CAN FLY!

Activity Description

The Winelands Cross Country Tandem Paragliding experience is a 2 -3 hour adventure experience from one of our Winelands paragliding sites. Soar on waves of lift for 30 minutes to an hour across the spectacular Winelands landscape.
On this type of flight we try to fly as far as possible in up to an hour in the sky (depending on the weather conditions). Experience the adventure of being able to fly like eagles. In suitable weather conditions we use thermals to climb as high as possible and explore the area around us by gliding towards the next thermal.
Cross-country paragliding flights require some lift to take place and are more likely in the warmer months from early Spring (August) to late Autumn (May). We recommend persons susceptible to any kind of motion sickness take medication an hour before the flight.
