If you are looking for something that lasts a bit longer, we are pleased to offer our cross-country journeys that extend air time and cover exhilarating and unforgettable landscapes.

Cross Country tandem flight

Winelands Paragliding are offering all the adventure lovers out there a chance to enjoy a fun and exhilarating Cross Country tandem Paragliding flight. On this type of flight we try to fly as far as possible, normally between 10-30 km in an hour (depending on the weather conditions). Experience a true Adventure of being able to fly like the Eagles do. In suitable weather conditions we use thermals to climb as high as possible and explore the area around us by gliding towards the next thermal.

That's it: cross-country flying! - the ultimate dream of all gliding, hangliding and paragliding pilots. Why? Because it's different. Because it makes you think, sense, imagine, smile...Some compare it to playing chess in the sky, and the reward is the beauty you'll find and the freedom you'll feel.

Expect to be occupied for about an hour and a half to two hours. Flight time is anything between 30 minutes to an hour and requires excellent thermic flying conditions. If the flight is shorter than 15 minutes we will drive you back to the take off area and take off again without any additional costs. Sometimes, it only takes one flight to put things in life into perspective. Just about everyone who flies with us are all smiles when we return to mother earth! The deep feelings coming all over you, resonates with your heart, fills your soul with wonder and awakens your mind!
