Gain a taste of what paragliding is all about with this introductory tandem flight in the heart of Switzerland. Paragliding at Lake Lucerne is a great way to enjoy spectacular views of the lake itself, the city of Lucerne and the surrounding mountains. Feel as light as a feather as you rise up into the skies like a bird and take in the majestic landscape beneath your feet - an experience you surely won't forget!

Tour programme
- Meeting & Preparation:
When paragliding at Lake Lucerne, the exact location of the flight will be determined 24h beforehand (based on the weather conditions) and the meeting point will be individually arranged with you accordingly. We either meet there directly at your chosen time slot or, for a surcharge, we can arrange transfer from our pick up locations in Zürich, Zug, Lucerne or Stans. Once we've reached the chosen mountain, we will take the gondola up to the take-off point. Here, your pilot will brief you and strap you into the harness. All you need to do after that is to run approximately 15m on your pilot's command, until the canopy gently lifts you into the air and you can lean back and enjoy the view. Of course, you are welcome to bring along friends and family members to watch your flight. The pilot will advise them on the best place to watch from at the meeting point.
- Start and Flight:
The flight lasts between 5 and 10 minutes during which time you will be treated to views of Lake Lucerne, the town of Lucerne, the surrounding Alps and, in some rare cases, even the city of Zurich.
- After Landing:
At the end of the flight, we will gently land back in the valley, where you'll be reunited with your friends and family and can go about the rest of your day.
