Gliding, Paragliding & Hang-Gliding
The Peak District has some of the best flying sites in the most beautiful setting for gliding, paragliding and hang-gliding.
If you feel like an unique personal challenge there are several BHPA (British Hangliding & Paragliding Association) Schools in the Peak District. Book a tandem flight for the scenery and sensation or sign up for a training course. There is a gliding centre at Great Hucklow.
If you simply want to watch the action, Mam Tor, which overlooks Castleton at the western end of the Hope Valley, is a major local centre for hang-gliding and paragliding.
