Captivating Flights above the Valley
Whoever has flown over the Vipava Valley is sure to return again and again. The Valley and the sloping hills surrounding it form a true paradise for paragliders and hang-gliders, while aircraft aficionados will find a warm welcome at the Ajdovščina sport airport. The Vipava Valley is even more beautiful from the air, as when you rise above the well-beaten paths, you will be taken aback by how close you are to the seaside, the Alps, and the Dolomites.
Flying as a Way of Life
Free flying in the Vipava Valley is such a normal part of life that when the weather is nice you are certain to meet someone lugging around a huge backpack with a carefully-packed parachute. Maybe they set out to the launch site on foot, or maybe they choose one of the meadows outside the official landing area. Seeing hang-gliding rigs on automobile roof racks is also an everyday experience here. The Vipava Valley offers fliers not only amazing conditions for sport, but also offers them fantastic accommodations as they seek out the ultimate thrill.
