About the Nordic Paragliding Open

The Nordic Paragliding Open is a competition to find the Champion from the nations of Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden. The Nordic Hang & Paragliding Committee is responsibly for arranging the competition on behalf of its competitors and for 2017 has delegated that responsibility to Brett Janaway of xTc Paragliding.

The spirit of Nordic Open is: To fly safe, have fun and be beginner friendly!

For 2017 we have chosen a fantastic venue for a fun-filled week of flying. We've also organized parties to keep you "flying" well into the evening.

The entry fee for competing pilots in 2017 is 240 Euro. This includes the entry, transport and retrieves, site fees, talks, briefings and the last night party plus a Nordic Open T-shirt. 

For non-flying family and friends, there will be the opportunity to buy entrance tickets to meals and party’s etc.
