Paraglide with a professional tandem pilot and witness the beauty of the Rockies from above. Soaring above the foothills of Boulder, you’ll have the opportunity to see the Continental Divide to the west, the Great Plains out to the east and Boulder’s famous Flatirons just to the south.
As soon as your feet sweep away from the ground, you’ll quickly realize that paragliding is in fact a very meditative experience. Softly soaring over some of the most beautiful terrain in the world is an immensely humbling and gratifying experience. Rest assured that while you fixate on the earth as it slides away, you’ll be in safe hands with a USHPA-certified tandem pilot at the helm.
Tandem passengers aren’t expected to bring any previous paragliding experience or knowledge with them. All that’s required is an adventurous spirit and a desire to learn more about the magical world of freeflight.
Paragliders harness the power of the sun and the wind to stay in the air. Just as the weather varies from day to day, so do our opportunites to soar across the sky. A typical tandem flight will last 10 minutes, though a slightly shorter or longer flight is always possible as Mother Nature offers what she will. Your lasting memory of this experience won’t be watching the minutes tick away, but the sheer awe one feels as they defy gravity for the first time and for a moment, join our feathered friends up in the sky.
