"Bulgaria is the best kept secret of Europe. Asking people in West Europe something about Bulgaria can make you sure of this quotation! This fact has good and bad sides: Bulgaria's economy suffers from west European cliché, stereotypes and unknowing! The benefits:  perhaps nowhere in Europe you will find such authentic mystics, cultures, traditional surprises and untouched nature like in Bulgaria. In Bulgaria are one of the oldest tracks of European and human cultures! "

Johannes Damisch, 33, XC and acrobatic PG pilot, Austria


Paragliding in Bulgaria

We offer you a great opportunity for paragliding in Bulgaria all the year around. Tandem flights, maneuvers clinic, wings, equipment, articles, aerial photos... but we have a lot more to offer - wisdom, beauty, friendship... You can choose your tour duration, flight program and places to fly, according to your budget, time availability and skills. Everything on your paragliding tour can be customized. Paragliding is the simplest form of flying and a natural way to get high :-) Developed from ram air parachutes by some smart guys, the paraglider is a foot-launched inflatable wing which allows good pilots to fly more than 400 kilometers and climb up to more than 6000 meters.

 

REAL PARAGLIDING FLYING

If you are in a desperate need of some real paragliding flying because of the rainy and windy weather in your country, or if you want to improve your flying skills by experiencing different mountain, flatland and coastal flying sites, or set your new distance and altitude records (and why not break the other pilots' records too), then your place for paragliding is the sunny and welcoming Bulgaria.

IT IS ALL ABOUT FLYING, FREEDOM AND ADVENTURE

We offer summer and winter all-inclusive paragliding tours, designed in a way to provide you extreme comfort and no worries about additional tour arrangements, and extra expenses on your tour. For the newcomers it comes as a pleasant surprise to find such a variety of landscapes in a country as small as Bulgaria. The high mountains make you feel like you're in the Alps, while flying in North Bulgaria is not much different to the Australian flatlands, and coastal soaring over golden, sandy beaches is as charming as in coastal resorts in Spain. Except Tandem Panorama Flight or coastal Tandem Soaring Flight we also offer Tandem XC Flight. It consists of 30, 50 and more kilometers mountain cross-country flying and lasts several hours. It will be a quest for beauty and understanding the nature. Our experienced tandem pilot will guide you to so many and such nice aerial views that your photo or video camera won't stop recording the mountains, the fields, the clouds, the birds, the sky.....We can make your stay in Bulgaria more enjoyable if you choose to add some extra outdoor activities to your tour program - hiking, biking, horseback riding, wind surfing, skiing, etc. Check these options from the menu to the left and let us know about your preferences.

RULES OF THE AIR

  • Remember that gravity is not just a good idea, it's the LAW. AND, it's not subject to repeal!
  • Every takeoff is optional. Every landing is mandatory!
  • It's always better to be down here wishing you were up there than to be up there wishing you were down here!
  • You start with a bag full of luck and an empty bag of experience. The trick is to fill the bag of experience before you empty the bag of luck!
  • Good judgment comes from experience. Unfortunately, the experience usually comes from bad judgment!
  • Learn from the mistakes of others. You won't live long enough to make all of them yourself!
  • The air does not know you are an expert. Turbulence is Nature’s way of reminding us we are not birds!
  • You're not a real pilot until you have to hitchhike back to the LZ!
  • The site working really great today is always at least 100 kilometers away. You should have been here yesterday!
  • Work is permanent, good flying weather is transitory. Work is for people who don’t fly paragliders!
