Amazing experience of flying around. Take the thermal flight - well worth the extra time and money. We felt very safe. This will be your highlight of Switzerland!

This was my first time paragliding, and it was spectacular and so easy! My pilot was Adrian, and he put me at ease from the beginning. He explained everything well, answered all my questions and provided interesting information about what I was seeing during the flight. He also took some nice photos. The take off and landing were effortless. We... More

When we first arrived in town, we noticed endless amounts of colorful parachutes floating high above Grindelwald. While none of us knew this was a hot spot for this freeing sport, after a couple nights in town - we realized we HAD to do this. Now, keep in mind, I wasn't with a bunch of dare devils, rather, we were... More

This was a once-in-a-lifetime experience, the best parts were: launching over the cliff wall in Murren, having brids fly around my feet, the close-up waterfall fly-bys, and the amazing scenery of the valley. I had an awesome guide (Rolf) and so did my partner (Hans?). I did get motion sick, so if you are prone to that kind of thing,... More

Waiting for the right wind conditions was the hardest part of the ride. I just wanted to get goign but eventually the little signal flags told us it was time to go and off we ran. Or at least I think I was running, felt so slow but we took flight and the rest was smooth sailing. All I could... More

Wow! what can I say!... very cool!!! It was our first time paragliding, and while the nerves were playing their part at first, I would have to say that this was one of the best experiences of my life. If I could afford 170 Euros on a daily bases, I would do it again and again. Peter and Dino were... More

Paragliding is meant to be an experience where you're up in the air, free from all the noise and troubles of the world...this was not the case for one of our rides.. Our instructor (who I believe was also the owner) spent more time on his mobile phone than anything else. Don't get me wrong we LOVED the paraglide and... More

This company did everything I could ask for. Beni was my pilot and he did a fantastic job flying, taking pictures, answering my questions, and pointing out all the sites while in the air. I felt in great hands the whole time. I highly recommend paragliding with this company especially the thermal flight, it is worth it! You fly higher... More

An amazing experience - truly see/feel/hear the magic of the Swiss alps & valley. Our pilot Rolf (sp) was very experienced, very helpful and knowledgeable about the sport and the area. My husband ended up going twice and is now considering taking up the sport. Reasonably priced and worth every penny!! If you go, don't forget to tip your pilot:)

I booked a flight for the 7th of June and flew from First with Joey. There was still some snow around at the take off site on the slope below the restaurant but it was not a problem. Harness on - and instruction from Joey to run and we were off! It was an amazing experience, we circled higher and... More
