WHAT IS THE TANDEM PARAGLIDER
The paraglider is a wing designed to allow the pilot to take off using leg thrust. It is characterized by the launch point along steep slopes such as mountainous ones. Paragliding, in fact, takes advantage of wind and height. The pilot maneuvers the wing through the suspenders connected to the ropes that act as handlebars. Its origins date back to the late ’60s and, today, it has become a real sport for which there are also competitions. Tandem paragliding is characterized by the presence of a certified instructor who steers the paraglider. In this way, the activity is safe for everyone and the passenger can enjoy the adrenaline experience without any worries.
HOW THE ACTIVITY TAKES PLACE
The tandem paragliding at Gera Lario, on Lake Como, takes place in the morning at the meeting point indicated on the map, where you will be given the technical equipment.
Then you will board a shuttle that will take you to Montemezzo, the take-off point from which you can already enjoy a privileged view of Lake Como. Once the weather conditions have been checked, the professional pilot will instruct you on the main safety measures and the most correct behaviour to adopt during the take-off, the flight, which lasts 15-20 minutes, and the landing. It begins, then, the race to the top to jump into the air and live unique emotions and adrenaline.
During the flight, moreover, if the weather conditions allow it, you can also fly and do some acrobatics over the water of the lake. You will have two cameras that will capture your emotions during the flight. At the end of the activity you can pick up the photo and video (with custom editing on request) to keep a lasting memory of the adventure!
WHO IS THE ACTIVITY FOR
Tandem paragliding is an activity for everyone as it does not require any physical preparation. You will always be well connected to the instructor and just have to enjoy the adventure. Even children 5 years and older can participate. The maximum weight allowed per passenger is 90-100kg (weather conditions permitting). This activity is also ideal for couples who want to share a unique and unforgettable moment.
