Overview

Paragliding is the most simple, direct and beautiful way to fly. We play with gravity, nature and its elements with almost unbelievable simplicity. We rise together with the birds into thermal air lifts and discover the 3rd dimension. Detached from everyday life we take off to enjoy the unforgettable impressions of nature…Free your mind! Meet the Pro The FREEMINDS Paraglide crew was founded in 2002 by Urs Estermann in Engelberg. The name describes the fascination of free flying and why the team wants to do it every day: The possibility to watch the world from above with free minds. Go exploring from above with a local pilot who knows the area like the back of his hand, See spots that most tourists don't even know exist! Your safety is the pilot's utmost priority! The FREEMINDS Paragliding crew is made up of a group of professional tandem pilots who have all completed extensive training in accordance to the guidelines of the Swiss Hang Gliding Association and the Federal Office for Civil Aviation.
