Cross Country Tandem Flight in the Winelands

Cape Winelands

Activity Description

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

Cape Hope 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!

WeatherWeather Paragliding is a weather-dependent sport. High-speed winds, poor visibility, rain and low clouds, are just some of the reasons that can delay, or even cancel our Paragliding operations. In case of bad weather, our team will announce a “standby”, which means we have to put our operations on hold. Regular announcements will be made updating you on the conditions while you wait at our locations. If the weather shows no signs of improving and we have to cancel operations and you cannot reschedule for the next available date, you will receive a full refund. Cape Hope Paragliding is not liable for any costs (travel, stay, etc.) incurred by the individual in the instances mentioned above. We recommend that you join us in the beginning of your travels so that we have the option to reschedule your flight if the weather doesn't play along.
What to WearThe passenger is flying in the front seat exposed to the wind. The temperature at altitude may be quite cold even though the surface temperature is warm. It’s best to prepare for the cold by bringing multiple layers. Please also remember to wear comfortable closed running shoes.
Things to BringA filled and signed copy of our Covid screening form (also available at our locations, if required). A facemask to protect you from Covid 19. Your gift voucher, if you have one and off course Sunscreen!
