Activity description

Appreciate the aquamarine lakes and waterfalls of Croatia's most popular national park on this tandem paragliding flight over the Plitvice Lakes.

A UNESCO World Heritage Site nestled in the verdant valleys of Bjelopolje near Korenica, Plitvice Lakes National Park is a natural oasis of terraced lakes and waterfalls more akin to the tropical environs of Indonesia than central Europe. To truly witness the unbelievable shades of blue, an aerial view is essential! Explore its 16 interconnected waterways and dense woodland as you glide over the park on a 30-minute tandem paragliding flight - looking out for wildlife as you trace the snaking footbridges below.

Location
Using a popular launch site just minutes outside of the national park in Bjelopolje near Korenica, Plitvice Lakes National Park is Croatia's most visited tourist attraction. Whilst the trail takes 6-hours to complete on foot, the 300m² national park is better viewed from the air. Roughly halfway between capital city Zagreb and Zadar on the coast, the meeting point for this activity is only a 10-minute drive from the park itself - and 5 minutes from the larger town of Korenica.

Activity
Take to the skies for a 30-minute tandem paragliding experience over Plitvice Lakes National Park. Meet your instructor at the meeting point in Bjelopolje near Korenica and drive to the take-off location at 1203m  where you will kit up and listen to a short safety briefing before you run and leap into the air! Now all you have to do is sit back and soak up those views! Glide over the UNESCO World Heritage Site - counting the 16 aquamarine lakes and endless woodland. An eco-friendly and unmotorised flight, you'll also get to listen to the roar of the waterfalls as your fly overhead, safely descending 592m to a soft landing spot outside the park.

Conditions
Plitvice National Park isn’t just for summer, thanks to the consistent thermals, tandem paragliding flights operate during summer and winter. The take-off site is located at the "half a hill." The gravel road that leads to parking under the takeoff site is grassy and allows for several flights at the same time.

Mal organisé, nous étions même pas au courant qu'une 2ème personne allait sauter, ce qui nous a fait une journée de 9h a 21h avec 2 enfants dont un de 1 ans.
