Contiki European Experience – Day 13 of 20

Day 13 was a free day but I chose to do the optional outdoor adventures!  Mountain biking (30 euros includes BBQ) and Tandem paragliding (120 euros).

Heading back now

At the end of the hour ride we took a group shot (copy of photo for 10 euros) and had a big fat BBQ.

Next up! Tandem Paragliding (120 euros)

A shuttled came and picked us up and vola we were there!  I wasn’t scared because I’ve already conquered sky diving so this is a baby to me but I don’t think I’ll do it again.. Got sick at the end from all the spinning.

Beautiful day to fly

Some photos taken by fly-2 (I’ve edited them)

Extra 20 euros for them to take photos of you up in the air (video also available)!  To save money, just bring your own camera (I recommend with a strap that can go over your shoulders to keep it secure) and do video from it or take photos.  I didn’t bother with video because I will never look at it.

I do recommend paragliding though.  They are very nice people and it was really comfortable and I was in safe hands.  It was a nice ride and the view is great.  Probably better this than a noisy helicopter.
