I've always wanted to go paragliding, and Pine and Shannon made sure my experience was memorable! From the moment I walked in to the time I left the entire staff was well organized, professional, and more than happy to answer any questions I had. The views are breath taking, so I definitely recommend getting photos of the experience!

a beautiful experience. Guides were friendly and engaging. First contact people could be more interested in the guests. They just kind of sat behind the counter. And for the price we pay, offering water, coffee or a soft drink might be nice.

It was amazing. A must do! Felt weightless and could see the entire roaring fork valley. The guides were knowledgeable and made you feel very safe.

My 11 year old son had a great time paragliding with Pine! The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. On my son's GoPro footage you can hear them talking about the trees while flying over them. Fantastic views of the mountains, the forest, the Colorado River and the city of Glenwood Springs. He would definitely do it... More

Smooth, exhilarating, the feeling of flying in this safe setup is awesome. The whole staff was friendly, knowledgeable and reassuring that it is a safe ride. They were great. Wished the ride would have lasted longer it was that fun. We talked my sister into doing it and she was glad we did. I didn't stop smiling for hours. Highly... More

Initially was worried when was reading the waiver form as it was very comprehensive and scary enough. But the staff were very professional and friendly, even the couples who own the place were present with us most of the time to ensure proper arrangements were made and safety aspects are strictly followed. The instructors were experienced especially A.J. and were... More

We went paragliding in August 2015, the owner (husband and wife team) Shannon and Pine were absolutely fantastic. Their staff also was so friendly and great to be around. We had a exciting time jumping off the cliff. They did an understanding job making it relaxing. They explained everything and put you at ease so that you could enjoy the... More

Pine, the owner, knew I'd had a bummer paragliding experience at another outfit, so he went out of his way to make sure I had a long, long, wonderfully exciting ride with a great (and fun) pilot, Vic. I highly recommend Adventure Paragliding. You guys rock! -Annie, a.k.a., "Arnie."
