SUMMER FLIGHTS (2017)

Paragliding in the Swiss Alps during summer is an experience not to be missed. Enjoy pleasant temperatures, clean alpine air and spectacular views of the towering 4000m peaks, including the famous Matterhorn.

All of our flights finish at the landing field behind Zermatt train station (unless otherwise stated).

Mornings are best!

Weather conditions can change quickly in Zermatt’s high alpine environment but mornings are generally more predictable. Plan your flight for the earlier part of the day to minimize the risk of missing out.

Experience a bird’s eye view of the Swiss Alps with one of the following tandem paragliding flights.

Our most popular flight starts from Rothorn's 3100m high peak. You'll have plenty of time to sit back and enjoy the “Classic” Matterhorn view.

Try a smooth early morning flight with a chance to catch the first gentle thermals or start a little later for the thrill of soaring upwards like an eagle in the sun's warm lift.

Whatever time you start, Rothorn makes a great long flight. Cruise gently through the valley or go crazy with some adrenaline pumping acrobatics.

Normally just the Classic High flight from Rothorn is available, but every now and then the Elite flight from Klein Matterhorn (the highest flight in the Alps) is also an option. Flights are usually super smooth in winter and we have fun swooping over skiers and enjoying the snowy landscape of Zermatt.
