Welcome to Cape Town!
Table Mountain is an inspirational landmark and a must-see for everyone who visits Cape Town. By foot, climbing, or using the cable-lift, there are numerous opportunities for enjoying the phenomenal view from the top. Would you like to admire the mountain in all its glory? You are guaranteed to find a paragliding instructor in Lion’s Head or Signal Hill who will be happy to guide you through the skies.
Paragliding: nearby and further away
You can follow a basic course at the Paragliding school just across the border in the Netherlands or head straight to the mountains for your first high-altitude flight.
True hardcore paragliders climb up to the top of Mont Blanc and then glide back down over the French Alps.
The Dolomites in Italy, the Julian Alps in Slovenia, and Mount Babadag in Turkey are popular launch platforms for paragliding.
For those looking for something a little more exotic, New Zealand, South Korea, and Hawaii rank high among fervent paragliders.
