Activity description

Experience tandem paragliding over the lagoon of St Leu in western Reunion Island and enjoy breathtaking views of the lagoon and the Piton des Neiges!

A young and dynamic team, passionate about paragliding, welcomes you for an unforgettable paragliding flight over the lagoon of Saint-Leu and other major sites in Réunion!

The tropical climate of the island offers exceptional flight conditions over 300 days a year and St Leu is the reference spot for paragliding in Reunion Island.

The school Ascendance Parapente offers you several flight options according to your desires and your budget – from a discovery flight of 15 to 25 minutes at 800m altitude to a mountain flight over the Dimitile (1740m) or the Maïdo (2200m), there's something for everyone!

Program:

Upon your arrival, you are warmly welcomed by the team that offers you the seats at the front of the truck to get to the takeoff site and ensure a ride without nausea. During the ride, the instructor explains to you how your flight will take place and the photo and video options. After some jokes to help you relax, you arrive at the takeoff area. Then, you gear up and after a briefing on the safety instructions, you're off to the big flight!

At the end of the activity, the team shows you a sample of the photos/videos that you can take with you (at an extra charge) before you leave with a big smile!

Le Blasé dira : nul. L’amoureux de la découverte dira : super Moi, je dis : Réaliser LE rêve d'une terrienne ascendance gémeaux, c'est pas évident ! Réussir malgré tout à la faire toucher le ciel du doigt, c'est un exploit. Un avant-goût du paradis. Voler… J’en ai pris plein les yeux. Merci !
