This is exactly why it is our adventure of the month and with the professional Icarus leading the way, you can rest assure that you will have the experience of a lifetime.


Tandem paragliding is a heavenly adrenaline rush. No experience is necessary, your pilot will do all the hard work, you just need to run on take off then sit back and relax and enjoy the view, and don’t forget to smile for the camera. Icarus’ most commonly utilised launch sites for tandem paragliding are Signal Hill and Lions Head Mountain, set within the beautiful Table Mountain National Park. Depending on the weather conditions, tandem paragliding flights last anything from 7 to 30 minutes. Not to worry, the pilot will keep you in the air as long as possible, allowing you to get the most out of this unforgettable experience.
