Activity description

Have the beautiful island of Reunion at your feet… Tempted? Well come and fly over the region of Saint Leu!

You’ll be surprised by its magnificent lagoons and exclusive wildlife. At the end of your flight you’ll land on a spectacular beach.

This is a great activity to get you into flying slowly. You have nothing to worry about as you’ll be accompanied by a state certified instructor, who will take care of everything. You’ll fly over the exotic palm trees in security, before landing next to Kélonia.

This is one of the most popular outdoor activities in Reunion – what better way to explore the island’s hidden treasures than from a bird’s eye point of view.

Who is this activity for?
Absolutely everyone! The young, the old, the big, the small - whoever you are, you can enjoy this fun adventure.

Tropic Parapente have invested in equipment that can be adapted to people with disabilities – don’t miss out on the fun!

le baptême parapente est un moment inoubliable de pur bonheur en direct avec la nature. L'instructeur a su faire partager ses connaissances du relief, et des courants. Les instructeurs travaillent dans la bonne humeur. Très bonne ambiance.

C'est juste génial ! Les moniteurs sont super accueillant, rassurants et pédagogues. Remerciement particulier à Pierre ! :)

Fantastique baptême tout en douceur avec une équipe très sympa - seul regret : l'absence de vent ascendant ne permettait pas de voler aussi longtemps que prévu - on est si bien là haut "

My flight: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A8twaIfCRkM (start at 00:47 till 03.04) Amazing flight, thanks to the super island and of course the super team of Tropic Parapente! I took the morning flight at 1500m and it was perfect. You had an amazing view of the island; you even go over the sea to see the corail. I was the first in the air so it was also fun to be "alone" in the sky with the sun behind my back. The only "scary" part of the flight is at take off when you need to run, but that's that. When you are flying you just sit back and enjoy the view!

LE PARAPENTE C'EST TROP GENIALLL !!!!
