Retrieve (XC)

Carefully choosing the best take off places with safe and reliable landings according to the season of the year, we will guide you in the heart of Carpathian Mountains for a memorable flying experience. April to September are generally good months for thermic and XC flights here. You will need to be a pilot with some flying experience in thermal, XC and basic mountain flying. We will, however, choose the flying sites in such a way to accommodate various pilot levels, making first sure that reaching official landing will be a non-event for any type of pilot. In the same time these flying spots have a good potential for thermal and distance crossing, making it easy to transform a good day into your personal best XC! Flying in Carpathian mountains is most of the time a mix between alpine and flatland flying thus requiring, beside a competent guide, some technical skills for long cross country flights but in most of the cases plenty of landing options. On the other hand join us and you will be rewarded with a complete traveling experience, that include good food, nice accommodation and new friends.

The Destination

Romania is one of the most mysterious and beautiful countries in Europe. Its ancient cobblestone streets, mysterious forests, and buildings thoroughly permeated by medieval spirit will penetrate your core. This country will fascinate you with its humble beauty, its gorgeous Carpathian mountains, and wonderful frescoes of ancient Orthodox monasteries. The best thing about it might be its magnificent medieval castles; according to legend, Count Dracula lived in one of them. We will be exploring the Carpathian Mountains. These massive mountains form a 1,500km-long range in Central and Eastern Europe. They stretch west to east in an arc from the Czech Republic to Romania. More than half of the Carpathian range lies in Romania, where spruce forests are home to brown bears, wolves and lynxes.

The Experience

If you have never been around you are probably asking yourself what to expect from a guided paragliding trip in Transylvania. Shall it be a fantastic XC experience, or rather easier flying spots with a lot of landing opportunities? Will it be strong thermals or rather mild ones? Well, the answer to all these questions is YES! Because we will show you many beautiful spots, matching your experience level. To be honest with you, if you have in mind record breaking adventures with hundreds of kilometres within easy reach, well, you will need some skills to master a combination between high alpine, low hills and flatland flying.

As a starting point we have chosen the city of Brasov, surrounded by mountains and being at a reasonable distance from many flying places. We will guide you in the heart of Carpathian Mountains for a memorable flying experience.

Good mood and big fun is included in the package as a standard! So come along, and bring your family as well! We can arrange tandem flights for them with experienced pilots.

The team

We are a group of 3 friends, paragliding pilots and tandem pilots since 2007, sharing many hours of free flight and safe landings. Mostly flying in Romania we have learned to master the specific characteristics of each and every spot we are proposing you in our tours. Therefore you can rely on us in providing vital information on each take-off and landing configuration, micro climate of each area and weather forecast.

Accommodation

We have carefully chosen locations that are both great in terms of services and are at a reasonable price as well. To be frank, if you ever participated in any paragliding tours in Western Europe or elsewhere, we are sure you will appreciate the quality of the services offered by our hostels and restaurants. Transylvania fly "base camp" will be in Brasov and most of the flying places will be max. 2 hours of reach by car. This will give us enough time to be "home" in Brasov even after long flying days. More precisely we propose you two hostels located in the city of Sacele, just minutes away from one of our favourite flying spots - Bunloc.

Double room (Vila Trapez)

This is what a regular paraglide pilot will call a "deLuxe location", with large twin rooms, a beautiful view, with a good meeting room for our evening briefing. There is nothing more we could ask for after the 5 hrs+ flights. Decent breakfast included.

Double room (IRIS Guest House)

It is located just 5 min by foot from the landing place in one of our favourite spots: Bunloc, Sacele. Is a cozy place with extremely friendly hosts. Is a good place for sharing your flying tips with friends, while tasting Romanian beers in the garden. Nice home made breakfast is included.
