paragliding – tandem flight
Receive a ticket to an unforgettable experience!
After a few steps of running you will glide with an experienced tandem pilot down into the valley. This will be an experience which you will probably never forget!
"The dream of flying"
For the paragliding tandem flight we will launch from the Zwölferhorn mountain above St.Gilgen on lake Wolfgangsee. After about 10 - 20 steps of running you will be able to fly, accompanied by an experienced tandem pilot, down into the valley. In the air you will sit comfortably in front of your pilot so you can enjoy the gorgeous landscape with the beautiful lakes and mountains of the Salzkammergut. For the landing we either have to run or we can sit while sliding on our harness' big protective airbag.
The duration of the experience is about 1.5 hrs including about 10-20 min of airtime, which can be extended in good thermic conditions (please discuss this with your pilot!). Each additional 5 minutes costs €5.-
Flights will be done daily if the weather conditions allow us to fly. In the mornings you will find the most smooth and steady conditions. Our flying season starts each year at Easter and ends at the end of October.
€130.- (incl.20% tax) plus cable car ticket (around €12,50).
Our pilots offer additionally a picture and video service and longer air times.
All passengers have the option to take part in a paragliding introduction day (Schnuppertag) for half price! Therefore please keep your tandem flight ticket. The
introduction day will take place in Weyregg on Lake Attersee and must be coordinated separately within our school courses schedule.
Paragliding is regulated by wind and weather conditions. A flight will only be safe in good flying weather conditions. If the weather conditions should not allow a safe flight on your reserved day, we will contact you as soon as possible and try to find another appointment to fly.
Normally we always fly from Zwölferhorn in St.Gilgen on Wolfgangsee. The flying conditions there are usually the best to go tandem paragliding.
Only sometimes we fly from other mountains like: Gaisberg / Salzburg, or Loser / Altaussee or Krippenstein / Obertraun, if required of the wind situation.
You can´t coose the mointain.
The meeting point is the bottom station of the Zwölferhorn cable car in St. Gilgen. Directly in front of the entrance you will find our yellow advertising signboard.
Please arrive on schedule. The adress is: Konrad-Lesiak-Platz 3, 5340 St. Gilgen. For further information please contact our tandem pilot Karin: 0043 699 10871798.
From Salzburg or Bad Ischl you can use public bus line 150. The stop St.Gilgen "Busbahnhof" is only 50 meter next the cable car station!
Family and friends are welcome to either watch the launch or the landing.
Your necessary equipment to bring to fly tandem will be: solid, ankle-deep hiking shoes with a good grip sole and a season- and temperaturematching long-sleeved outfit. All other gear like helmets, harness and paraglider we will bring with us. We are looking forward to welcome you to your tandem flight!
Everyone who is able to run a few meters down a slope can fly tandem. Passengers below 50kg can only fly in the morning at 9:00. Passengers around 90kg need to choose an appointment between 12:00 and 15:30. This regulation is due to safety. Our maximum weight limit for a passenger is between 95 and 100 kg. Passengers over 90kg must be in good sporty conditions!
There is no age limit for adults. The minimum age limit of children is 6 years. Everyone under 18 years needs a consent form from the parent or legal guardian.
