Your paid down payment, and the amount to be paid on arriving, will be listed on your E-ticket that you will receive after you place your order.

Tandem paragliding in Tenerife is a popular activity for people who want to experience the thrill of paragliding, but do not have the necessary skills or training to pilot a paraglider themselves.
