What you'll do

We will meet at the Bláfjöll area only a 20 min drive out of the city. There we will strap you into the safety gear, brief you about the take-off and then tow you along with your pilot up to some 5-800 meters above ground!

Once the final height is reached, the pilot releases the towing cable and you are silently free flying together. Your pilot takes care of controlling the Paraglider, you just enjoy the spectacular view and experience of a lifetime!

Depending on weather conditions, we'll stay soaring for up to 15 minutes! The whole experience takes about an hour.

You need no prior experience or knowledge for this activity as you will have your own personal pilot up there in the air with you.

Wear outdoor clothes and good shoes, dress according to weather.

We always put safety first, so we may need to change the schedule if weather is not up to our standard. In this case we will e-mail you, so please check your e-mail before leaving to meet us.

Pick up is available upon request for 3.000 ISK.
GoPro footage is available upon reqest for 5.000 ISK.

I want to give you a chance to experience the same feeling I get when I explore a new country through my passion of Paragliding. Paragliding takes you to places normal tourists don't go. There is a different non-touristic atmosphere, you get into the rough nature, hang out with adventurous locals and gain a real connection to the country you are visiting. And the view... just wow!

Me and my team are the only 3 qualified Paragliding Tandem Instructors in Reykjavík, with extensive training and experience. We will safely take you high above the rugged Icelandic landscape!

Weather didn’t permit for paragliding. Was given the option to reschedule or take a low riding plane ride. Took the option for a low riding plane ride and loved it! The host was great to talk with and provided a car ride to the location.

This was an awesome experience and I'm glad I went! The paragliding itself was really smooth and easy, and it was amazing to see everything from so high up. It seems like it is really weather-dependent, so I would recommend keeping the rest of the day flexible and being reachable in case they need to coordinate things with you that day.

This was a truly wonderful experience and the group tries to accommodate the best they are able to despite weather conditions. The weather conditions were not conducive for paragliding so I had the option of going in an ultralight plane instead. Amazing and the highlight of my trip! Thank you!

It is a once in a lifetime experience! My teenage kids and I felt very safe with Anita's people. It is expensive, but it is an experience you will draw upon for years.

This was an amazing ride. Prostur and our pilot Gyom made us feel welcome and safe. It was a beautiful and fun experience. My 15 year old daughter even went up and was all smiles when she came down. I was so glad the weather was nice enough for us to enjoy this adventure.
