Tandem Hang Gliding

The Experience

Fly free as a bird. Feel the wind in your face and breathe in the essence of the forest as you soar the ridges and thermals. Drink in panoramic mountain and sea views. Experience the effortless beauty of silent flying.

At Sky Adventures we use the latest tandem aero-towing techniques to provide the safest, most enjoyable experience possible. “Tandem” hang-gliders are built for two and operated by an experienced pilot. The tandem hang-glider is towed into the air by a specially designed tow-plane called a “tug”. Unlike hill launching, aero-towing allows us to take you as high as you want and release you anywhere. Flying this way is safer and a lot more convenient then hill launching. The sky truly is the limit.
