Activity description

This activity being technical to organize for aerological and logistical reasons, we propose you the flight over the lagoon of Saint Leu, available for reservation.

Enjoy a paraglide over the beautiful Réunion Island: you will take off at an altitude of 2,000 meters on the Piton Maïdo! It’s by far the most beautiful paragliding flight in Réunion Island, often called a mythical paraglide.

You will meet near Saint-Paul at 6.30am and then it will take you an hour to reach the take-off point. You will take off at an altitude of 2,000 meters on the ridge of the Piton Maïdo, in the direction of the Cirque de Mafate.

The aerology is often generous and the show is grandiose : you will glide along the rugged wall of the cirque where the landscapes really are breathtaking! The flight will last between 45 minutes and 1.5 hours, depending on the weather conditions.

You will land on the beach of Saint-Paul, next to the famous marché forain.

Offer Description

Before taking-off, your instructor will gear you up and give you a quick briefing. Once you are at the take-off point, you will have to rush forward without sitting down in order to get to the right speed to inflate your glider and take off comfortably. All of a sudden, you will feel yourself becoming very light and that is when you will realise you are in the air.

You can then sit down and enjoy the view : it’s very similar to sitting in front of the television, except you are now seeing everything live! This is the perfect time to ask any questions you might have to your instructor. The lucky ones among you may even look down to see a turtle, whale (in season) or tropicbirds.

You will land gently whilst standing up, however, you will have an airbag under your seat so your bum is well protected.
