Activity description

Fans of extreme sports have to come and try a paraglide above the stunning island of Reunion.

You will be accompanied by a certified expert who will take care of everything, as you sit back and enjoy the scenery or fly the glider on your own.

Open all year round, Adrenaline Parapente proposes flights all around the island.

Young parents, let your children experience what it’s like to fly!

Tandem paragliding – who’s it for?
It’s for everyone aged between 4 – 99, as long as you’re able to take a few steps on the ramp to take off. The take-off is very gentle and no you don’t need to be a high level sports person!

Children must be able to express themselves clearly so the instructor can understand what they want and adapt to their needs.

What about vertigo?
With a paragliding flight you don’t feel the effect of vertigo, to feel it your feet need to touch the floor. You’ll be sat very comfortably in your seat so open your eyes and take it all in! Paragliding can be compared to scuba diving or yoga, you’ll find yourself full of contemplation.

And the adrenaline rush?
You can fly in a thousand different ways, that’s the beauty of paragliding. You can sit back and just enjoy the scenery or you can do aerobatics, fly the glider or do a spiral where you descend 15 metre/second!

There really is something for everyone!

Who will I fly with?
The tandem paraglide pilots are certified professionals, they all have their diplomas allowing them to fly with a passenger. They know exactly what to do to make sure you fully enjoy your experience in the air!

Is there a weight limit?
The total weight of both the pilot and passenger must not exceed 230 kg. So a passenger can weigh up to 120 kg, as long as you can sit in the seat comfortably, you’re good to go.

For children who weigh less than 40 kg, it is advisable to fly first thing in the morning when the conditions are calm.

How should I dress?
For classic flights it is advisable to wear trousers, a jacket, a windbreaker and sunglasses.

On your feet you should wear trainers or hiking boots. Sandals and flip flops are a big no no!

If you’re flying over the mountains then you should dress warmly

Is it dangerous?
It is only dangerous if you fly with someone who doesn’t know what they’re doing.

The instructors that will accompany you are extremely competent and responsible. They have one goal and one goal only, to make sure you have the most fun in the air, safely.

What about disabled people?
Adrenaline Parapente propose flights adapted to your disability. Make sure you contact them to discuss the type of flight that would be ideal for you.

20 mins paraglide

Before taking-off, your instructor will gear you up and give you a quick briefing. Once you’re at the take-off point, you’ll have to rush forward without sitting down in order to get to the right speed to inflate your glider and take off comfortably. All of a sudden you’ll feel yourself becoming very light and that’s when you’ll realise you’re in the air.

You can then sit down and enjoy the view – it’s very similar to sitting in front of the television except you’re seeing everything live! This is the perfect time to ask any questions you might have. The lucky ones among you may even look down to see a turtle, whale (in season) or even tropicbirds.

You’ll land gently whilst standing up, however, you will have an airbag under your seat so your bum is well protected.
