Silently Through the Crystal Clear Air
How would you like to fly through the air as free as a bird, and experience the beauty of the Ziller Valley from up high? When you take a tandem paragliding flight, you are on eye-level with the mountain peaks and will enjoy amazing views with front-row seats (and extra legroom!). Most paragliding flights start near one of the mountain cable car stations where your pilot will wait for you. If you haven't got a lift pass, just buy a one-way ticket for the journey up. Before you fly off into the air a state-qualified tandem pilot will give you a full briefing. Then the adventure really begins! After just a few metres of running, your feet will lose contact with the ground below as the wing lifts you up. Silently and closer to the heavens than ever before, you will drift above the valley. After about an hour of flying, you and your pilot will prepare to land. At this point it is your choice whether you'd prefer to glide gently down to ground, or choose to experience a rollercoaster landing with exhilarating turns.Top tip: Dress warmly! Even if it is a sunny day the temperatures at this altitude can be really frosty. Ankle boots are ideal for both take off and landing. Also remember suncream and sunglasses!
