Extreme Sports in Israel: Paragliding

Imagine after touring the coastline exploring the amazing ruins of Caesarea and enjoying a nice rest next to the Medditrnean Sea; we can sign off with an hour-long birdseye view of the region we toured! No wind or thermals are needed. It can be launched in still air, and on level ground, by the pilot alone. It takes only a couple of seconds before you are gently lifted off the ground and into the sky, embarking on a journey that will provide you with excitement and unforgettable memories!

Caving in the Judaean Hills 

You choose the nature of your experience: calm and tantalizing, or extreme and adrenalin-filled. No previous flight experience is necessary for tandem flights; they can be enjoyed by just about anyone. In addition, you are seated in a secure harness behind your instructor. So this seating arrangement allows you an unobstructed panoramic view. Finally, under the supervision of your instructor, you may take the controls and experience the sensation of flying yourself! One of the companies that offer this kind of activity is Extreme-Israel.
