The past 13 years has seen the Ghana Paragliding Festival become an integral part of the annual Kwahu Easter festivities.
The event rekindled the hither-to dying Kwahu Easter festival and transformed Easter celebrations in Ghana into an international event.
This year’s edition of the event which is the 13th since its inception is dubbed: ‘You too can fly’ is set to treat both Ghanaians and foreigners to 4 days of spectacular aerial fun at a short colourful ceremony.
All these past years, tandem paraglide pilots have gathered from around the world to fly local Ghanaian spectators and foreign visitors.
The festival is open to solo pilots as well and boasts of consistent flying conditions that begin around mid-morning until late in the day.
The tides are consistently large and mild and offer a fantastic opportunity for both newer pilots to gain valuable experience and airtime as well as for seasoned pilots who want to enjoy hours of “stress-free” flying.
The Ghana Tourism Authority (GTA) launched this year’s edition of the Kwahu Paragliding Festival in Accra.
The yearly event which is the flagship programme of the ministry is being organised to promote domestic tourism in the country.
