My wife and I have gone on a multi-country vacation this year, and one of the things we had on our checklist was a paragliding adventure. We found Ivo’s Chickenwings adventure (which I found humorous since chickens do not fly—my wife did not find this quite as funny). We were a little nervous to go at first having never done anything that involves a parachute. Ivo put our minds at ease with his great joyful personality and immense paragliding expertise. As soon as we got up in the air I knew this would be an unforgettable experience. The feeling you get when you soar above the Alps, the trees and the birds, is something a video or photograph cannot even begin to capture. It’s actually quite comfortable as the harness is basically a cushioned chair you sit on as you fly around the peaks and valleys of the mountains. We were both smiling ear-to-ear the entire trip down, and I can say for certain I will remember it forever. Ivo and his good friend Markus were really good people, and we couldn’t be happier that we ended up booking this incredible experience through them. Don’t let your nerves get the better of you! I promise that you will find it worth every franc! It was absolutely the best part of our entire trip.

Friday 9/22/17 – Ivo came recommended to us by another paraglider who could not meet us. We were not disappointed in the recommendation. With an infectious laugh and wonderful grin, Ivo met us at our pick-up point like we were old friends. With both my wife and I jumping, Ivo introduced us to Marcus, the man who taught Ivo to paraglide. With Marcus on my back, and Ivo on my wife’s, we leapt from Pizol and soared for almost 40 minutes. Ivo and Marcus pointed out various features of the landscape - including that we could see France, Germany, Liechtenstein, Austria and Switzerland -and both genuinely enjoyed our flights. My wife and I were comfortable with Marcus and Ivo from the very beginning. Their relaxed attitude and charm made for a breathtaking flight where we reached a top altitude of 2400m. Ivo even let my wife steer the glider- while Marcus offered the same to me, I chickened out and didn’t. Ivo also offered my wife pictures and video from her flight at a very reasonable price. They were worth the money and he delivered a slew of both via dropbox in less than a day. If we find ourselves back in Switzerland, I would not hesitate to contact Ivo and Marcus again for another flight.
