Good to know
We often hear about "paragliding jump" but the right term is "the flight"! 🙂 We do not throw ourselves into the void, we take off very slowly. And if you have vertigo, no problem with your feet not touching the ground, this feeling of vertigo does not exist when you fly in a paraglider 🙂 The instructors are real pros and will know how to accompany you in this activity which can be very cushy or even very sensational, it's up to you to tell them what your preferences are.
Find your paragliding instructor
Discovery flights, initiation, or sensation flights, or quite simply to offer as a gift card, find an instructor, a stone's throw from Foix, Toulouse or Saint-Girons!
