Paragliding and Hot Air Balloons
Take a walk in the sky! The view is fantastic!
Take to the skies in a hot air balloon or paraglide over the vast terrain of Eastern Hokkaido. Breathing in the crisp clean air, while viewing the nature that spreads below is sure to be an unforgettable experience.
Paragliding Tokachi, located in the Tokachi region, teaches you the basics of paragliding, and provides both solo flights and tandem flights with seasoned pilots. Spectacular scenery of the Tokachi Plains enhances the flight experience, making it all the more remarkable. If you want to ride in a hot air balloon, enjoy the “untethered flights,” operated by experienced pilots. The balloons can reach altitudes as high as 300 meters, and depending on the speed, you can enjoy varying winds and scenery. For beginners, we suggest trying “tethered flights,” where the hot air balloon is tied to the ground with a rope, rising up to as 30 meters, providing 360-degree panoramic views. If you are in Furano, try hot air balloon rides by Leisure Guide Asobiya. Tethered flights in summer, and untethered flights in winter give passengers the perfect seat to vistas of the Daisetsuzan Mountain Range, Furano Basin and much more!
