What is paragliding?

Paragliding is a leisure sport that allows you to stay in the air for a long time using only a paraglider or a "wing". In principle, one takes off from the side of a mountain or steep hill, after which one can fly by relying exclusively on the strength of the wind and the resistance of the paraglider's canopy. As there is no propulsion, you gradually descend during the flight taking advantage of the rising winds, which can easily take up to two hours. During this time, sitting in the harness under the parachute, you will have the opportunity to discover the area from above and fully immerse yourself in the experience and the scenery.
