Thermal Flight
German, English, French, Italian
Meeting place

At the bottom station of the Niederbauen cable car (Seelisbergstrasse 2, 6376 Emmetten) or pick up from Lucerne (arranged after booking)

  Winter times

In winter, we fly as long as there is light.


With our thermal flight, we go high over the Alps and you will have enough time to enjoy the unique feeling of flying! The Niederbauen mountain is the ideal starting point for your paragliding flight because from here you can enjoy a breathtaking view of Lake Lucerne and the surrounding mountain peaks.

Tour programme
- Meeting and Preparation:
We meet at the bottom station of the Niederbauen mountain railway, which takes us to the large starting place in the grassland. During the preparations for take-off, the pilot will give you instructions for the departure, flight and landing and hand over the equipment.
- Start and Flight:
The take-off is simple: At the pilot's command you start running and after a few steps we will soon fly above the deep blue water. Then you sit back in your comfortable paraglider seat and enjoy the flight experience. You have your hands free to take pictures.
- After Landing:
The landing in Emmetten is just as smooth as your take-off. If you have booked the option including photos and video, you will receive them directly after the landing on a USB stick.
