Paragliding and hang gliding holidays in Bulgaria - view the spectacular scenery of Bulgaria from an exhilarating height!

Most people are fascinated with the idea of flying like a bird but not everyone has the opportunity to make it happen. Paragliding or hang gliding is the closest you can get to being a bird without growing feathers. We won’t go into great detail about the differences between paragliding and hang gliding but the links on the right will explain far better than we can!

A paragliding or hang gliding holiday in Bulgaria
There are several ways that you can enjoy a paragliding and hang gliding holiday in Bulgaria. If you are an experienced pilot you can hire paraglider equipment from one of the Bulgarian clubs (see links).
Many clubs offer training courses where you can learn how to paraglide or hang glide, or, if you just want to experience the sensation of flight, you can paraglide in tandem with an instructor at one of the many paragliding and hang gliding clubs in Bulgaria.

Learning to paraglide or hang glide in Bulgaria
Before you can take to the air solo on a paragliding or hang gliding holiday in Bulgaria you must be qualified. A number of clubs in Bulgaria offer training courses for beginners or intermediates. During the course - usually a week - they will teach you the basics of ground-handling, launching, flying and landing. There should also be an exam on basic hang gliding theory. All hang glider and paraglider pilots are required to qualify through an accredited flying school.

Bulgarian paragliding and hang gliding sites
While there are a lot of good spots for paragliding and hang gliding in Bulgaria the best location, because of the terrain, is around Sopot in the Stara Planina mountains. The rugged mountains, with a beautiful valley provide remarkable scenery. The cloud base is usually over 2,000m (6,561 feet) and on a good day it can reach 3,000m (9,842 feet).

There are 10 flying sites within easy reach of the Geshaview holiday village, the closest is at Skalsko which is a short distance from Dryanovo.

If you are an experienced hang glider or paraglider looking for new flying sites or a novice who wants the experience as part of your holiday in Bulgaria you should contact Geshaview and they will organise a paragliding or hang gliding holiday to suit your ability.
