xTc Paragliding

Guiding your XC adventure!

xTc are professional paraglider guides for paragliding and hang-glider trips. We run courses across Europe , including the Julian Alps in Slovenia, the Dolomites in Italy and the Spanish Pyrenees. We may also on occasion schedule trips in France, Austria and other surrounding countries.

On all our paragliding holidays we tailor the week according to the pilot so you will always get the best for your level of experience. All sites are suited such that we can mix 'just qualified' paraglider pilots with Skygods without hindering either, although many of our weeks are themed to get common experience levels in the group.

  • Experienced: We have been guiding paraglider pilots on our holiday trips in the Julian Alps, Slovenia for 14 years and feel we know more than any other guides for this area. Similarly in Ager, we have been guiding for 8 years, longer than any other English speaking guide. xTc Paragliding are also organisers of the famous GIN Wide Open competition.
  • Lead Guide: Brett Janaway has a long history in flight. He holds World Records for 100km Speed and 205km distance on a tandem, British Records for O&R (204km) and speed over 200km paragliding and has previously set records in other areas of the sport as well is being Paragliding Accuracy National Champion three times. He also flies HG, microlight and light aircraft, although paragliding is his main sport.
  • Guiding: We ensure you get to the right site on the right day for your experience level. We want you to get the maximum airtime possible and the biggest XC available.
  • Safety: We don't just abandon you on launch. We always have one of our team launching last. We always brief you about the landing field, the launch and the XC possibilities. We make sure you are informed and looked after. All our staff are first aiders!
  • Theory: We are here to help and advise. We'll teach you why thermals go up, where to find them and how to get the most from them. Thermalling is an art on a Paraglider or Hang-glider and we aim to teach you how to do it.
  • Tolmin to Italia: We always try to get our pilots along this route in Slovenia. 100km of pure thermalling. Our own Brett holds the British Record along this route and the Valic brothers set the World Record on an extended version of the same route!
  • Italia to Tolmin: Brett holds the Tandem Speed World Record for this!
  • Comfort: Whether it is traveling between sites in our air conditioned vehicles or staying in our comfortable hotels, we want you to enjoy all aspects of your paragliding holidays.
  • Airtime: That's why you are coming so that it what we endeavor to deliver. The Julian Alps, Slovenia, gives some of the most reliable XC flying in Europe and we will capitalize on that during your trip. Ager has less then half a days rain per month at the times we fly there
  • Stress free: We will take care of ALL aspects of your holiday, from the minute you arrive at the airport to the minute you depart. We have been doing this for 13 years and we know our stuff!
  • Paraglider guides you can trust. As Paraglider guides, we have had enormous success in the Slovenia and Ager region with a reputation second to none. Trust us with your guided holiday!
  • Tolmin, Kobarid, Bohinj, Bassano, Meduno, Gemona, Castejon de Sos or Ager. You choose!

xTc have been guiding since 2003 and consider themselves amongst the best in the business.

Our trip prices include accommodation, airport transfers, transport throughout, guiding, coaching & retrieves.

We differentiate ourselves from other operators having a reputation for going the extra mile to get you into the air. We don't restrict ourselves to one valley, one mountain, but travel each day to the very best weather in the area around us. We have even been known to relocate the entire group to another country if the weather dictated so. But don't think that makes it a holiday in a bus. Most sites are between 5 & 45 mins away!

You spend a lot on your holidays. Book with the best to avoid disappointment!
