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
Tandem paragliding on the island of Vulcan takes place every morning at the meeting point indicated on the map, where you will be given your technical equipment.
You will then board a quad bike to reach the take-off point. Having checked the weather conditions, the professional pilot will instruct you on the main safety measures and the most correct behaviors to adopt during takeoff, the flight, which lasts 20-25 minutes, and the landing.
Then begins the race to the top to launch yourself into the air and experience unique and adrenaline-fueled emotions with the backdrop of a perfect picture between sky and sea whose colors mingle with the Aeolian Islands in the distance and the mighty volcano of Stromboli.
At the end of the activity you can collect your photo and video to keep a lasting memory of the adventure!
