Paragliding

Note: This event has already passed.

Date: Oct 13 2018

Bassano del Grappa

Experience the unique thrill of soaring through the air, catching thermals, with your feet dangling during a tandem paraglide jump. Paragliding is a seated parachute activity, and each participant will be paired with an instructor. The amount of time spent in the air while paragliding can vary based on the temperature and weather conditions. Expect the time from takeoff to landing to be about 15-25 minutes. Feel free to bring your camera or video recording device to record the flight!

Due to the time it takes between paraglide rotations, there is a good amount of downtime. We recommend bringing a book, digital music device or fun games to play with the group while we wait. There is a nice restaurant near the takeoff where we will hang out and have lunch.

A note on the weather: Good weather is paramount to paragliding. In the event of poor winds, rain, etc. this trip may be cancelled. Outdoor Recreation will consult with the guides to determine the best course of action. In the event of a cancellation, participants will be contacted regarding refund information.
