So near the sky
It's one of mankind's oldest dreams. And an accompanied paraglider flight almost makes the dream of flying come true.
The Fiescheralp, at 2,212 m.a.s.l., is one of the world's best take-off points thanks to good thermals from the nearby glaciers and mountainsides. Pilots soar as high as 3,000 m.a.s.l. from here. Eye-to-eye with the stunning peaks and with a 2,000 m drop to the valley floor, gliders experience awe-inspiring freedom. Novices should try their hand in winter, when constant air movements ensure a smooth flight.
