What to expect
At the very end of Signal hill drive there is a car park, and our take off site is a stone-throw-away from that car park. Our take off is awesome and spectacular that even before we take you to the skies you can enjoy amazing views of the City Bowl, Sea Point, Robben Island and the vast expanse of the Atlantic Ocean. Taking off is very easy. All your need is comfortable running shoes because sometimes we need to run a bit... Remember no experience is required because our license and well-experienced Tandem Flight Pilots will do everything for you. Your only task is to use our unique go pro cameras to take photos and videos and to feed you eyes with the amazing view of the city. Your task is to enjoy the ease, relaxing and invigorating experience of paragliding above Cape Town.

Fantastic experience!
Feb 2020
Such a treat getting to experience Capetown from above with Icarus Paragliding. It was almost too windy to fly but the team constantly monitored the wind and eventually Jacques took me out on a full 17 minute ride.
Jacques was th best instructor, we had a blast up in the air, he made me feel very safe and comfortable at all times and the entire experience was magical. We even saw dolphins. Highly recommend it, thanks again! Steffi from Germany

Short but sweet
I loved the experience of paragliding from start to finish. Everyone I dealt with was fun and informative. I knew exactly what was going to happen, when it was going to happen, and what my part was in the process. It was an absolutely beautiful way to see Cape Town.
A word of warning: if you’re prone to motion sickness, take an extra Dramamine. The one I took the morning of paragliding wasn’t quite enough. A couple of the turns made me a little queasy, but it didn’t stop me from enjoying myself.

Loved every minute of the paraglide!
My best friend and I did the paragliding at daytime with Icarus right off signal hill in Cape Town. It was soooo much fun ! The team made us feel super safe and everything was done very professional. The view over Cape Town was insane and I really liked that we flew through a little bit of fog coming from the ocean at sea point. SUCH A COOL EXPERIENCE!

Amazing experience
Apr 2019 • Friends
My best friend and I went paragliding with Icarus paragliding and we simply loved it. To fly above Cape Town, see the lions Head next to you and the Table Mountain is something that won’t fade out of your memories. I definitely recommend you their paragliding. Very safe, best equipment worldwide and friendly atmosphere :)! To land next to the ocean is amazing.

Amazing and cool guys
Our first paragliding flight and that above Cape Town was amazing. We wanted to make a sunset flight first, but unfortunately the weather did not work out, so Icarus offered us a morning flight. The communication was great, received an email and WhatsApp immediately an answer. The introduction for the flight of our flight attendants was great and the flight with them was just funny! We will be back and will fly with Icarus again! The photos and video footage we received within seconds on our smartphones. I highly recommend it! Greetings to John, Jacques and Thymore :-)))
