Discover the mountains and lakes from a new perspective while paragliding in Zermatt! Together with our paragliding pilots, you can enjoy the beautiful view for 20 to 25 minutes and experience an adventure. Fly over the beautiful mountain lake the Riffelsee, in which the peak of the Matterhorn is reflected. The flight is suitable for all from age 5 who like adrenaline and height, in combination with nature.

Tour programme
- Meeting & Preparation:
We will meet you at our office 10 minutes before your start time. You reach Zermatt by public transport, as the town is largely car-free, there are no parking spaces at the meeting point. There you will meet your pilot and get prepared for your flight. Afterwards, we walk about 5 minutes to the lift station and drive up to the mountain. Please bring some money for the ticket, if you don't have one yet. Our pilots can assist you buying a one. If you have friends or family with you who would like to watch your flight, the landing station behind den train station is the perfect spot for this. From there they will be able to see your take-off and flight.
- Start and Flight:
When we arrive at the top, you will receive a safety briefing for the start and all your open questions will be answered. Your equipment will be checked before you head to the launch point. Then only a few steps separate you from the feeling of freedom that you will feel as soon as you are floating in the air. Enjoy the nature surrounding you and the view of the lakes and mountain below you. This flight is called "spectacular" for a reason.
- After Landing:
We end up behind the train station, which is only a few minutes away from our office.

The pilot, Alan was really friendly and very assuring when i feel nervous or scared. Everything was good, he brought me up to Rothorn, explained everything and the safe way to take off. However, there was a minor tangle in the parachute strings. But we managed to get good flight time, and landed safely. Alan also returned a portion of the money as the flight was cut short which was great.
