In The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom sequel Link’s new abilities include Fuse, Ultrahand ability, and Recall, amongst many others. However, while these are great for on-land exploration, you might wonder what you do for the skies.

Aside from the flying machines or glide shirt that can be used, there’s one item you can use to sail through the air. So, make sure to follow this guide on how to get the Glider in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom Guide.

Where do you get the Paraglider in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom?

Making your way through the vast open world of the Hyrule Kingdom can drain your stamina quickly if you don’t have the correct tools like the Paraglider or the Zonai Devices. This is especially so when you add new areas like the Great Sky Island. Thankfully, we know how you can glide high up through the skies, and that is with the Paraglider. 

To get the Paraglider, you must make your way to Purah. This will take place during the Crisis at the Hyrule Castle main quest. This will take place at the Lookout Landing Skyview Tower. First, interact with Purah, who will need your assistance to gain data at the Skyview Tower.

After a few cutscenes where Purah and Joshua activate the surrounding Skyview Towers, Purah will gladly hand over the Paraglider to Link. Once you’ve entered the center of the Skyview Tower and after some manhandling from the robotic arms, you will be shot into the air to scan the surrounding areas. 

After completing this portion of the quest, use your Paraglider Press X on your Nintendo Switch. Your Paraglider will activate whenever you are in the air to glide around the Kingdom of Hyrule or anywhere you fly.
