How does a tandem flight work?

We meet at the agreed meeting point (will be discussed when booking the flight) and go up together with the Schmittenhöhebahn (lift ticket not included – if you have the Zell am See Kaprun Summer Card, the ascent is free. As our guest you get the summer card for free). Did you know? The Schmittenhöhe is one of the most popular sights in Zell am See and one of the most beautiful view mountains in Austria.

After putting on your helmet and seat belt, you will receive a briefing and after a few steps we are already in the air on the paragliding tandem flight. We land softly on the landing field in Fürth (Kapruner Straße 2, 5721 Piesendorf, train station).

What do I need?

  • Approx. 1,5h time
  • Ski clothes with gloves in winter
  • sturdy shoes and long pants in summer
  • Sunglasses

No previous knowledge is necessary!
