Paragliding Marrakech

Overview of Paragliding in the High Atlas

What is paragliding?

Simply defined, paragliding is flying from a slope or cliff using a wide, light, foot-launched glider. If you're looking for an unforgettable activity, tandem paragliding is an excellent choice: you'll never forget the feeling of being a bird in the sky, flying with no engine other than the wind.

The basic tandem paragliding flight is a heavenly adrenaline rush. No experience is necessary, your pilot will do all the work, just run to the takeoff, then sit back, relax and enjoy the view, not forgetting to smile for the camera. A paraglider is a free-flying, foot-launched aircraft.

A tandem glider is specially designed to carry two people. The passenger is strapped into a harness in front of the experienced pilot. Do not confuse paragliding with skydiving, you will not be jumping out of a plane.

What should I wear during the flight?

Rubber shoes, long-sleeved shirt and pants are recommended. Sunscreen. Sunglasses can be worn while flying.

Is paragliding dangerous?

Paragliding is an extreme sport, but you are in good hands with our pilots. All Paragliding pilots are highly experienced and certified with insurance.

Our pilots will only fly if the weather conditions are safe. If other pilots are flying, but the pilot feels that it is not safe to fly, he will not allow it, therefore we prefer to schedule you for another day. Safety is paramount.

Safety measures include wearing a helmet, harness with back protection, a reserve parachute, as well as a thorough pre-flight check and observation before take-off.
