As mentioned in the previous article, there are a lot of offbeat, crazy and adventurous things to do on the idyllic island of the Gods. Paragliding is one buzz you really cannot miss the opportunity of experiencing.
I have done it a couple of times in New Zealand, you can take my word for it when I tell you gliding through the air on wind currents whilst delighting in the stunning views from ‘up there’ is one heck of a thrill. It is totally different to skydiving where the thrill is in the first rush when you jump from the plane.
A paraglider is one simple wing in every sense of the word and it is designed as such that the same aerodynamic principles as a conventional aircraft are used. By using the upward flowing air streams you will find just how easy it is to attain substantial heights and travel great distances. If you desire for adventure is in the skies and you want to soar like the birds then there is a great company in Bali that can fulfil your lust for thrills. Exofly has been operating in Bali for the last 14 years and has an excellent reputation.
If you have never imbibed in paragliding before and are a tad concerned then Exofly will ease those worries. As their website explains ‘Experience is not necessary as our highly professional and well experienced instructors can take you on a tandem flight leaving you free to enjoy the captivating scenery of coral reefs and green lagoon waters below.’
Exofly is open from April 15th through until November 30th.
