Activity description

South Africa offers amazing landscapes, now imagine experiencing them with a bird's-eye view. Paragliding in Hermanus near Cape Town is something you must experience!

Hermanus is located 130 km. from Cape Town and is considered the best land-based whale watching destination in the world. Every year, whales visit Walker Bay, especially between June and December. If you are lucky to be there during the season you might catch them whilst paragliding!

Your paragliding flight will take-off from Rotary Way. Once in the air, you'll paraglide over the town of Hermanus. Open your eyes wide, you will experience breathtaking views and you might even see whales approaching the bay! Even if the outstanding whales don't show, the panoramic views are more than enough to exceed your expectations

The landing is quite mellow, you'll land in one of the school fields at Hermanus. After your flight you can hang around for a while, the village has many fantastic restaurants!

The team over at Icarus will provide you with all necessary equipment including helmets, harnesses with back protection, reserve parachutes and will also execute careful pre-flight and pre-launch checks.
