Extreme sports are a unique kind of physical activity. For a few moments, it’s life on the edge. Heart beating out of your chest, blood rushing through your veins, and energy flowing in every fiber of your body, this is the most you’ll ever feel alive.

For those of you who are hesitant or afraid of trying an extreme sport, it is a way to get out of your comfort zone, and experience and feel something new. It’s a way to let go.

Paragliding in Jounieh

Soaring from a mountain top in Ghosta, the Jounieh bay and Lebanon will never look more beautiful.

When you’re up in the sky, you’ll feel like a bird, human problems forgotten. You’ll eventually land on a beautiful strip in the center of Jounieh Bay, which is considered one of the most beautiful bays in the world.

However, not all pilots paragliding in Jounieh are certified. So, for more assurance, please ask for certificates before flying.

Five waterfalls along the Assi river will get the adrenaline rushing through your body. The ride lasts for about 2 hours, but not all of it is that intense.

The Assi river is located in the North of the Bekaa Valley, 3 hours away from Beirut. You can spend the night there as well since there are many camping sites around the river.
