"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 - 2 hrs. including around 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.
€149.- (incl.20% tax) plus mountain ride up to take off (around € 15.-). Our pilots offer additionally a picture and video service and longer air times.
