Leave the worries of everyday life behind…a tandem paragliding flight is the easiest way to intentionally lose the ground from under your feet and experience that what most people can only dream about – absolute freedom! Anyone that has experienced this feeling once, will remember it forever. The phenomenal views will make you forget all negative thoughts as you fly silently above the mountains of East Tyrol.
Tandem paragliding flights are available all year round although the summer months are the most enjoyable. It’s also easier to get to launch sites when the ski lifts are open.

A quick briefing takes place at the landing area clubhouse for all passengers. The meeting point and place for the flight is then agreed. Depending on which flight you choose, it’s up the mountain with the car, the taxi, the gondola by foot or the chairlift to the start area. There your tandem pilot will provide an accurate introduction and instruction on how to start, run and land. After the harness and helmet has been adjusted and checked, the experience of flying can begin.
After just a few steps and a short run, you will be on your way to seeing some of the most spectacular views of your life! You’ll experience views of the Hohe Tauern, the Lienzer Dolomites, and all the mountains around the Lienz Valley – simply breathtaking.
