Paragliding is an adventure sport where the lightweight, free-flying, foot-launched glider is used to soar through the wind. A glider sits on the harness that is suspended below the wing, and the wing is given direction by changing the shape that is done with suspension lines. It's a unique experience where one can cover long distances while sitting with the pilot for a long time. The wind on the face, the height, the adrenaline rush, together makes this adventurer sport an eye-opener as well.
