With us, you can fulfil one of your childhood dreams - being able to fly, or in this case paragliding in Zermatt. Glide very close to the mountain scenery of Matterhorn with a stunning view of the surrounding snow-covered peaks, a view which you will not forget soon. This flight is perfect for beginners as an introduction and is suitable for everyone from the age 5 to 70 years who want to experience a different perspective together with our trained pilots.

Tour programme
- Meeting & Preparation:
We meet at our office 10 minutes before your start time, where you will meet your pilot and get prepared for the flight. Together we will walk to the lift station, it's a 5-minute walk and if you don't have a lift ticket yet, our pilots can help you. Please take some money with you for the ticket. If your friends or family want to watch you, the landing site behind the train station is perfect because from this point they can see you take off and most of your flight.
- Start and Flight:
When we arrive at the mountain, you receive a safety briefing for the start and the equipment will be checked. Afterwards you only have to walk some fast steps, and you are already in the air and can enjoy the wonderful view. If you book the photo/video package, the first photos will be taken here at the start and will remind you of this eventful day in the future.
- After Landing:
We end up behind the train station, which is only a few minutes away from our office.
