A bird's view of Earth

Are you a fan of activities in the air? See the diverse Slovenian landscape in paragliders, hang-gliders, or by sky diving in tandem. In Slovenia, there are several paragliding schools where you can learn the basics of flying or simply attach yourself to a paragliding instructor and admire Slovenia from the air, safe in the care of a professional. If you easily get dizzy due to heights and prefer staying close to the ground, you can hover above the ground in wind tunnels.


Climb up to Slovenian mountains and hills, big and small, and descend into the valley below on your own or in tandem with an experienced paraglider. Take in the beauty of the landscape and enjoy the freedom of gliding through the air. In Slovenia, you can find many take-off sites for paragliders, 40 of which are registered take-off sites. They can be found all around Slovenia, and the most popular ones are the take-off sites in the Soča Valley, Vipava Valley, Lake Bohinj. The starting point for your paragliding experience, solo or in tandem, can be one of Slovenia’s ski resorts, such as Krvavec Ski Resort, Vogel Ski Resort, Cerkno, Soriška Planina, Golte, Pohorje.
