“Until you spread your wings, you have no idea how far you will fly.”

Paragliding is a flying adventure activity which gives you the opportunity to enjoy the flight of the birds by using the thermals and winds.

“Once you have tasted the taste of sky, you will forever look up.”

Skydiving is a flying adventure activity, also known as parachuting. If your dream is to “fly like a bird” and if you are not afraid of the free-falling experience, this is your adventure! It involves a jump down from an airplane while it is flying and then parachuting to the ground. This is a high adrenaline activity that requires professional guiding (if you do it tandem), perfect flying equipment and a good pair of courage.
