You Can Learn To Soar With This Wisconsin Hang Gliding Adventure
We’ve told you about
forest walks above the trees and adventure courses, but we’ve never shown you anything quite like this. If you love an adrenaline rush, this just might be the thing for you. Hang Gliding is the perfect way to push yourself a bit without going totally bananas. It’s a rush and an amazing way to see how beautiful Wisconsin is from above, without going as far as jumping out of a plane. Wisconsin Hang Gliding is a totally awesome and unique place we’re so lucky to have here. The owner has more certifications than we’ve got space to list and the instructors are well qualified to have you the thrill of a lifetime as you soar through the air.
According to their website, Wisconsin Hang Gliding "offers you the opportunity to experience flight like a bird. We allow you to learn from certified experience instructors in a controlled environment. Discover 'dynamic free flight soaring' by taking a discovery tandem flight with one of our certified tandem instructors. Allow yourself to be towed up with an instructor on a tandem hang glider with our Dragonfly aerotow plane. You can just go along for the ride and take in the free flight experience."
Even folks who have been skydiving prefer hang gliding as it's more peaceful and really lets you soak in the experience of soaring. People who've had a great time at Wisconsin Hang Gliding said, "Rik and his team did a great job in making this an enjoyable safe experience. I'd recommend this to anyone looking for a little adventure." Even people who would have said they were afraid of heights enjoyed it!
Tandem flying is one of the best ways to discover hang gliding. A certified instructor does most of the work - though they'll guide you through taking over the controls for a bit if you'd like. You just get to relax and enjoy the view!
There are few physical demands for hang gliding, making it a great sport for people of all ages and abilities to try. The glider itself supports the weight and the pilot shifts their body to steer. Tough wind conditions can test upper body strength a bit, but for the most part, it's not physically demanding.
And the payoffs are spectacular. Getting to feel like you are flying with little structure around you is something you won't find elsewhere. It's not a fall, but a controlled flight as you soar.
Hang gliding isn't inexpensive - a tandem flight is listed at $179 on Wisconsin Hang Gliding's website right now. But if you're looking for a thrilling adventure, the price is worth saving up for.
There's simply something so freeing about getting to be up in the air, looking down at the world.
Or even getting to literally have your head in the clouds!
There's just nothing like the thrilling freedom of floating above the ground - it's different than looking down from a plane window. You're close enough to see movement and you feel connected while getting a literal birds' eye view.
Hang gliding is definitely a splurge, but it's also unlike anything else you could try. If you're looking for unique adventure or gift, you can't do better than Wisconsin Hang Gliding.
