Soar the Kootenay Skies in Tandem
In partnership with Kootenay Paragliding Adventures, a small local outfitter, we are thrilled to be able to add paragliding to our latest set of Summer Outdoor Specials. Kootenay Paragliding Adventures is the only company in Canada offering both "drive-to-fly" and "hike-to-fly" paragliding options for the 2017 season.
The entire 3-4 hour paragliding experience includes transportation, paragliding instruction, tandem flight with a fully licensed pilot, and in-flight photos (transferred to your mobile device or email immediately after landing).
The adventurous "hike-to-fly" option involves a 2 hour steep hike preceding a beautiful flight over the City of Nelson - a high level of fitness is required to experience this unique adventure.
Kindly note: All flights are dependent on suitable flying weather. Previous paragliding experience is not required.
$200 per person / 1 booking
