Biking & Paragliding Combo
Combine Biking and Paragliding in one day to discover Cape Town’s beauty from the mountainside through to the skies.
First up you’ll enjoy a Mountain Biking adventure that involves traversing the front side of the Mother City’s Table Mountain, with the ease of a vehicle drop-off at the start of the trail. We depart from the lower cable car station and enjoy the exciting off-road trails and private road leading around Devil’s Peak. It’s a great ride suitable for all levels of fitness and ability.
Next, we’ll stop for lunch en route to Lion’s Head where part two of our adventure kicks off. Heads-up: Prepare for amazing aerial views.
Paragliding has got to be one of the world’s most amazing adventure activities. And where better to experience this incredible pursuit than above the beaches of Camps Bay and Clifton with the city of Cape Town, Table Mountain and the Twelve Apostles as a backdrop? Lion’s Head offers the most accessible takeoff but there are numerous other options available around the Western Cape of South Africa.
Our expert, fully qualified guides are there to ensure that this breathtaking flight is carried out with all the necessary safety measures in place so that you can concentrate on taking in the views as you float effortlessly on the moving air currents.
Tandem Paragliding uses an oversized, specially designed tandem glider and two harnesses. Now individuals who don’t want to learn how to paraglide on their own, but wish to explore the skies and soar amongst the mountain, can also enjoy the sport.
Each and every flight, even for us pilots, is different every time – but the exhilarating feeling is always incredible. The one thing you won’t feel is the sensation of falling just after takeoff.
From Lions Head landing is between Camps Bay and Clifton beaches on the grass in front of The Bungalow (the old La Med), sometimes you will land on Camps Bay beach, but local security isn’t too keen on this and threatens to lock up our pilots
From Signal Hill you will either top land back on Signal Hill or you will land on the famous Sea Point promenade.
Standard paragliding flights are 5 – 20 minutes long
On a chilly day wear something warm, it can be freezing in the air
Sunglasses can be worn in-flight
We can arrange 5 pilots per group, so yes you and your loved one, friends or family can all fly at the same time. This does not mean that you will all be flying in the same paraglider, might sound like a stupid answer but we have been asked “how many people can fly in that thing at the same time”, it is a tandem paraglider which means two people.
Cycling is only done on the lower half of Table Mountain and not on top.
We transport you to the base of Table Mountain so you do not have to cycle the huge uphill from our offices!
