Description

Have you ever dreamed of flying? Have you ever imagined yourself gliding through the clear sky, gazing down at the gorgeous scenery below? If you have, this paragliding trip will make those dreams come true. During this adventure, you will get to sail through the air above the Glenwood Canyon, in the Rockies of Colorado, near the town of Vail.

The paragliding area is only approximately 45 minutes from Vail. And once we reach the area, you will be securely and safely fastened with one of our guides on a paraglider. From there, we will take off, and for approximately 15-20 minutes, you will get to fly above the gorgeous Glenwood Canyon. In every direction you look, you will get to see some truly breathtaking scenery, both below and beyond. From the enormous peaks of the Rockies, to the area’s vast collection of rivers, meadows and forests, you will get to see it all.

There are no age restrictions on this trip. Even children can enjoy it. Thus making this trip perfect for the entire family. However, we do have a weight limit of approximately 260 pounds. But, other then that, this trip is open to anybody.

There is no experience quite like paragliding. It is literally flying through the air, feeling the wind only birds can feel on your face. If that sounds like an experience you wish to have, all you have to do is send us a request and we will make it a reality.

Ended up booking a one-night-and-one-day hike summiting Mt Shasta because Mt Rainier was booked out.

I really loved it. Intro to rock climbing was an amazing experience. Explore-share team were so helpful in the process. The trip that I chose in the first place was not available and they managed to find alternatives and offer me the best possible solution in that situation. In the end I had a wonderful day and could not be happier!

Guide cancelled within 48 hrs and I was unable to find someone else and so far I’ve not been refunded. Put a small dent in my otherwise great trip to Revelstoke.

It would have been helpful to know it was suppose to be a Matterhorn prep course. The goals of the group were a little different.

I was very glad to have the Back country ski tour in Montata by following reasons. 1. I had quick replies from my coordinator and guide whenever I asked something; 2. My guide was cool. 3. The tour was well-planned and appropriate duration. 4. Snow was in a good condition. Thank you!!

Poor service from Explore-share! The vendor who provided the actual tour shared with Explore-share that heavy rains prevented them from doing a substantial section of the tour. I was not notified. The vendor also offered a substantial discount for what we were able to do and this was not shared with me either!

Neil was our guide and he was amazing! We did Camelback mountain climbing and he knew all about it and the other nearby mountains. Lots of great info and fun. I took my two boys, 9 and 11 years old plus climbed myself (44 years old). So perfect for all ages and skill levels. Definitely worth doing!!!

Guide was very experienced and very patient with us. We learned alot and he tried to fit in all the knowledge he could in one day, super awesome. A little tough going back and forth to get the trip set up hard to tell if the site is sketchy until you see reviews but all worked out. Ended up with an awesome day with an awesome guide. Overall pretty satisfied and thankful!
