Attraction Information

At Butterfly Paragliding School take a tandem paraglide alongside an instructor and explore the sky high experience in total safety with your qualified and experienced BHPA instructor handling the take off and landings.

Or avail yourselves of the sturdy winch motors and be flown like a kite up to 2,000 feet! Amazing! There are height and weight restrictions and a large number of progressive options once you get started, so there's no knowing where a few years here would take you!

Their full facilities list includes Winch towing, hill launch training, tow launch courses, tandem flights, conversions, weekend specials and taster days!

Plus, if you're getting ambitious or want to step back and spectate for a while, they are differing ways to get involved with their Solstice Cup, a fun event for novice paraglider pilots!

If you really want to make the trip a morale one then why not check out their Tipis? Beautiful, comfortable and traditional tents to camp in overnight with your family's adrenaline filled activities either side!
