Skydiving & Gliding

Hang gliding

Every summer, thousands of people take off from the summit of Golden's Mount Seven - into the magical world of silent, unpowered flight, 1,000m/3,000ft above the valley floor.

Pilots from all over the world come here, looking for the thermals that make it possible to fly record-breaking distances. Experienced pilots regularly achieve cross-country flights in excess of 100km/62mi.

For the rest of us, the challenge might be more personal in nature. It takes a certain character to step out into thin air with nothing but a fabric wing to keep them from heading straight down.

More information on skydiving and gliding can be found at the Golden Visitor Centre.
