Having flown extensively in the Himalaya for 16 years, Frontiers Paragliding, lead by Himalayan expert Adam Hill, are heading off to explore some of their other favourite places.
You can go with them, and explore some fascinating cultures and enjoy some flying in exotic locations.
The dates for the tours are:
Bhutan – October
Indonesia, Java and Bali – October
South Africa – December
Colombia – January
Each tour will be lead by Adam and a local guide.
Here’s Adam’s resume of the regions he visits:
Wedged between Venezuela to the east, Brazil to the south, and the Caribbean to the north, Colombia is the only country in South America whose sugared beaches are lapped by both the Atlantic and Pacific. Straddling the equator, this lush tropical nation boasts a diversity of fauna and flora so rich as to stagger the mind. With three mighty north-south Andean cordilleras separating the western coastal lowlands from the almost empty eastern jungles, we have a perfect free flight area ripe for exploring.
Rippling across the equator for nearly 5000km, Indonesia is a vast archipelago, encompassing more than 17,000 islands. Our flying safari takes in 2 of the main Islands, Java and Bali. Both island paradises offer a wealth of the most varied and beautiful flying. From the tropical soaring on the famed Bali coastal ridges to the lofty volcanic peaks of Java, we have tailored this tour to take in the best flying and the unique cultures that Indonesia offers us.
From September through April flying in the Cape is on. The variety of flying sites in the Cape are astounding and the landscapes, views and possibilities will take your breath away.
The famous Table Mountain is the back-drop to the cosmopolitan city of Cape Town. The coastline and rugged mountain ranges running up the East side of South Africa contribute to some of the most beautiful landscapes in South Africa. Most South Africans call this area the Garden Route. Here we visit the famous coastal flying zone of Wilderness which boasts smooth, chilled-out coastal soaring possibilities and also its high mountain inland launches for the more adventurous.
Our unique 12 day flying tour takes us on an unforgettable odyssey around the Kingdom of Bhutan.
We have designed a tour that encompasses the best flying the Kingdom has to offer with awesome views, unmatched hospitality, unique culture, great food and luxury guest houses.
Cradled between India to the south and Tibet to the North and roughly the size of Austria and Switzerland, Nepal forms a rectangle on the southern slopes of the Himalaya, and is without exception, the most stunning country imaginable. With an amazing variety of ethnic groups and cultures, and of landscapes which change from tropical jungle to high glacial peaks within a distance of 150km.
