Tandem Paragliding in Tuscany

€139 per person

Our instructor: Walter Bardi

I have been flying for years and teaching my students to fly. It’s not just a sport, but a sense of freedom and my greatest passion. With the tandem paragliding  I will make you discover this experience, in total safety and maximum professionalism.

You’re wondering what is a tandem paragliding flight? It’s easy! A perfect blend of excitement and adrenaline! You have to Take a few running steps to take off and to fly over magnificent landscapes!

With the aid of qualified instructors and pilots you can try and share a real paragliding flight. It is usually a soaring flight. After the take-off, the pilot will try to take advantage of the updrafts available (depending on weather conditions) to rise to the top, sometimes even several hundred meters above the starting point and then remain in the air for a long time, enjoying the true essence of paragliding.

The total cost of the experience is € 139, of which € 39 as deposit (to be paid online at the time of purchase) + € 100 to be paid on site before the activity.

Flight duration: Since it is not equipped with any engine, the duration of a tandem flight varies according to the weather conditions that we will encounter after take-off. In fact, the necessary upward currents are not always available to allow the flight to be extended as the pilot likes, we may not find any favorable upward current. In these unfortunate cases the flight is reduced to a minimum (10/15 minutes). However, if the weather conditions permit, the pilot will remain in flight until the passenger is completely satisfied.
