Golden Tandem Paragliding

By Parapete Tandems

Have you ever wanted to fly? Imagine taking a few short steps and watching the ground disappear. Your personal tandem paragliding instructor can make this happen.

What you can expect

You will meet your Tandem Paragliding Instructor at the Golden Eco-Adventure Ranch. From here you will be shuttled to the top of the mountain (see reduced price if you choose to drive).

You will get to view photos and video of your flight (purchase possible).
