Summer Tandem Flights

Paragliding in the Swiss Alps during summer is an experience not to be missed. Pleasant temperatures, clean mountain air, high alpine pastures filled with wild flowers and spectacular views of towering 4000m high peaks including the famous Matterhorn, all set to the tune of whistling marmots and alpine bells on grazing sheep. Experience a spectacular bird's eye view of this panorama in the sky's over Zermatt with one of the tandem paragliding flights offered below.

Mornings are best!

Weather conditions can change rapidly in the high alpine environment of Zermatt, but are generally more predictable in the mornings. Plan you flight for the earlier part of the day to minimize the risk of missing out.

Classic High

Launching from the top of Rothorn peak at 3100m (10,200ft) above sea level, approximately 1500m (4900ft) above Zermatt, you'll have plenty of time to sit back and enjoy the breath taking scenery. Take off early in the morning for a smooth flight with perfect light for amazing photos and a chance to catch the first gentle thermals of the day over the cliff faces above town. Take off a little later for the thrill of soaring like an eagle upward in the stronger thermals. Whatever time you start, Rothorn makes for a long flight regardless of conditions. Cruise gently through the valley or go crazy with some fun acrobatics above the landing field to impress your friends.

Starting from the top of the National ski piste you'll fly out towards the Sunnegga restaurant, soaring low along the ridge or if conditions allow rise with thermals in the warm summer air. Watch the downhill bikers leave their dust trails as they tear down the ski runs below then drift out over the valley with enough height to try out some fun moves with your pilot.

Take the scenic Gornergrat railway up to Riffelberg with awesome views along the way. For those who like to hike why not take the train all the way to Gornergrat which looks over the magnificent glaciers then walk back down to meet your pilot at Riffelberg. You'll then launch out over Riffelalp, fly up and across the valley to buzz the Edelweiss restaurant. Say hi to the climbers on the cliff faces, then down into Zermatt to land.

Elite

Launching from Klein Matterhorn at an altitude of 3850m (12,600ft) will give you membership to a very exclusive club. Very few people will ever have the privilege of flying from this height. Klein Matterhorn is the highest lift accessed point in Europe and one of the highest lift accessible takeoff sites in the world. From here you will not only enjoy a stunning panoramic view of Switzerland but also a substantial part of northern Italy. It may be a warm summers day down in Zermatt but up here surrounded by snow and ice, temperatures can hover around freezing point even in August. Taking off just beside the lift station we will soar high above mighty glaciers which carve their way through the Swiss Alps, over the glacial ski runs which are open all year round and wave to the spectators at "Trockener Steg" restaurant. Depending on conditions your pilot may take you via Riffelhorn in search of extra thermal lift or via Schwarzsee, buzzing the Edelweiss restaurant terrace on the way to the landing site by the train station.

Winter Tandem Flights

Classic High

Launching from the top of Rothorn peak at 3100m (10,200ft) above sea level, approximately 1500m (4900ft) above Zermatt, you'll have plenty of time to sit back and enjoy the breath taking scenery. Conditions in winter are generally quite smooth allowing us to fly extremely close to the ski slopes. Feel the sensation of "surfing the skies" as we swoop low over skiers heads and restaurant terraces before gliding out high over Zermatt. For the more adventurous, ask your pilot for some acrobatics to truly get your adrenaline pumping.
