Our trip is an opportunity to see the different corners of this wonderful country and fly with the eagles in strong mountain streams. Our paragliding launch places are located at altitudes from 1000 to 2800 meters, with the cloud base reaching up to 5000 meters. We will fly small routes in the company of an experienced instructor and connoisseur of these places. You can expect quite active mountain thermic conditions. According to your experience level we will adjust the type of flying, and use the most suitable time of the day for our goals.
The participants of the program will experience heartwarming hospitality, delicious national cuisine, untouched nature and beautiful flying sites. we have five main regions for flights and each region has several spots and a huge number of attractions (waterfalls, lakes, ancient villages and fortresses, its climate and unique landscapes). We will visit a site for testing paragliding equipment and ground handling before we fly to assess your level of experience and further choice of weather and flight locations. You will also pass a short theoretical course on behavior in emergency situations on flights. Our goal is to minimize possible risks and keep you safe. You will have a SIM card for local communication, but if you are an ambitious XC pilot, then we recommend grabbing a SPOT device.
The capital of Georgia is the beautiful old city of Tbilisi. This is where our journey starts. We begin our tour with excursions around Tbilisi and getting to know the culture and traditional cuisine of Georgia.
Our next goal is the mountains of Kazbek. This giant rises to 5 047 meters, its top is always covered with snow. There is an ancient Christian temple, ancient defense towers and several paragliding spots at the foot of the mountain. We will travel to these places for several days, on our jeep and of course to fly. If you love to hike and fly we can lead a hike to spots not reachable by jeep and then fly away from there.
Next, we will go to the Zhinvali water reservoir. Here we will see the ancient fortress Ananuri and fly in this picturesque corner of Georgia.
Our next goal is the one of the most remote regions of Georgia, Svaneti or Tusheti. We will choose the location according to the weather, your qualification and your preference. Both these regions are unique in their remoteness from civilization. Thanks to the isolation in the mountains, ancient traditions, architecture and ecology were preserved there. In a calm, meditative setting, we will explore the ancient sites and fly in these regions. We will see ancient Georgian villages with their fortress-and-tower houses, taste delicious traditional food made from local, organic products and enjoy the beauty of untouched nature.
