Paragliding - An Incredible Adventure

Holidays in Montenegro can be not an ordinary sightseeing trip with sightseeing and visiting the beaches, but an incredible adventure that will be remembered for a long time and will give vivid impressions.

To do this, you need to think out in advance a plan of activities for an active pastime.

Montenegro is clear of the Adriatic Sea, beautiful nature, and a huge choice of entertainment for tourists. So, you can go diving and fishing from a boat, try your hand at short rafting on Tara, go hiking or rent a yacht for a walk. But if you want unique emotions, you should try something new and unknown.

Towards the sky

Paragliding - extreme entertainment, which gives the opportunity to see the landscapes of Montenegro from a bird's eye view. The flight is carried out in tandem with an instructor on a motorless ultra-light aircraft - a paraglider. Its design is simple: the dome is made in the form of a fabric wing, which provides a soft soaring in the air. Several ropes allow you to control the paraglider and move in any direction. Movement occurs due to thermal and dynamic airflow. The device weighs no more than 5-7 kg, and its flight speed on it varies from 20 to 70 km / h, so it is quite safe.

Paragliding Montenegro attracts a large number of tourists and is a popular option for outdoor activities, as during the flight there are amazing panoramas of the Boka-Kotor Riviera, Budva, Petrovac, Goraj, St. Stephen Island, and Becici. This is an indescribable feeling of freedom, an increase in adrenaline in the blood, overcoming your own fear and new experience.

Special features

Paragliding is easy enough to master under the control of an instructor, so entertainment is suitable for beginners. Those interested can preliminarily undergo training at the paragliding club in order to gain confidence and learn to adapt to the various flows of air masses.

The average price of a flight with an instructor is 75-125 euros. Stay in the open sky - for 15-25 minutes. Children who have reached the age of 4 years, and adults weighing no more than 120 kg can take part in the flight.

When planning a paragliding flight, it is important to consider the weather conditions in order to get the most out of this exciting adventure. Gusty wind, strong sea breeze, and precipitation will become an obstacle to flight.

Paragliding spots

In Montenegro, one of the most popular places for paragliding is the Braichi mountain range, which rises above the resort of Budva. The flight starts at an altitude of 760 meters above sea level. In Budva, flights take place all year round with a good forecast.

The glorious panoramas of the Budva Riviera, the city-hotel Sveti Stefan, small villages, majestic mountains, and the Adriatic Sea, merging with the sea, open to the glance of the gliders. At the end of the flight, tourists make a soft landing on a sandy beach. Flying high above the ground, you can videotape using an action camera, and shoot a flight on a camera.

But Budva is not the only place to go paragliding. You can make a paragliding flight over Budva Riviera or in Kotor. This could be the Džidaritsa massif in Herceg Novi, Suterman in Petrovac, or Vršuta in Bar. You can also take off from Mount Lovcen - this is one of the highest points on the Adriatic Sea coast (1650 m).

Paragliding is an affordable way to experience strong emotions and make a memorable vacation in Montenegro. Feel the awesome feeling of weightlessness, delight, and a wave of adrenaline, off the ground!
