First Flight Paragliding

First Flight Paragliding

Map
Grouse Mountain, Vancouver, British Columbia , Canada

Instead of hiking up north Vancouver’s infamous Grouse Grind, First Flight Paragliding offers a more adventerous alternative: soaring 4,100 feet above sea level, straight off Grouse Mountain’s peak. The company's paragliding trips provide an aerial perspective with uninterrupted views of Vancouver, Capilano Watershed, and the Lower Mainland. Instructors guide participants through a 30 or 40-minute tandem flight covering everything from basic meteorology to launch techniques and demonstrations of basic turns. Once strapped into a six-point harness, the passneger is then guided by the pilot throughout the trip.
