“Flying off the Mountain tops in the Alps”
Reviewed August 29, 2012

Unbelievable fun! Never planned doing this, it just happened, once we arrived in the Jungfrau area, and saw the Paragliders coming off the mountain tops... we figured, here we go.. Bucket List item coming up!
The thrill was incredible, the Guides seemed very focused on deatils (we want them to be), and we took off around 9-10,000 ft then soared (UP) from there on the Thermals another few thousand feet! Views and experience were untouchable!
You can arrange the flights in advance, prior day is best, at several local points. The area above Grindewald seemed to be the highest take offs.

“Really takes your breath away!!!!”
Reviewed October 5, 2011

If you have ever wantedt to see one of the most stunning places on the planet from a different perspective, then this is the way!
I heard about this company before leaving for Switzerland, and decided I had to have a go. I have never been paragliding before, and this seemed to be a good one to start with. How impressed was I? Well, there is no better way to see the magicial place that is the Lauterbrunnen valley than this! We arrived at 2:00pm, and were able to book a flight that same day at 3:30 via our hotel reception. You can also go to Air Time located in the main street to book your flight. After a beautiful cable car ride and short walk to the take off area, My pilot Allain and I suited up and took off. All I can say is WOW!!! When you take off from that valley wall it is amazing!!! Flying in that valley with the massive Jungfrau and the equally impressive Eiger for a backdrop was so awe inspiring. You can take your own camera with a strap for securing it. They also offer inflight photos and video for sale at the end of the flight. If you have ever in your life thought you might try paragliding, then this is the place to start!
Just remember that the cable car fee to Murren is extra to the cost of the flight, but is only 10 Euros.
