Paragliding is an activity almost anyone can do, with a tandem flight that is. Being a tandem pilot however takes extraordinary skill, courage and loads of training time. You almost need to have supernatural powers to become a world-class tandem pilot. Turns out all of AlpinAir’s paragliding pilots have exactly that: amazing superpowers! No wonder they are the best paragliding pilots you can find in the whole of Switzerland.

Sunny days in Interlaken are awesome. The snowcapped Jungfrau Top of Europe mountain backdrop combined with the emerald blue lakes creates a unique visual spectacle unheard of. Imagine now seeing all that from a birdseye view, soaring high up through the sky while the snowcapped mountains reflect the pure sunrays and the lakes reflection has a diamant glitter to it. Life doesn’t get much better than this!
Interlaken's best views are from the Sky
The view from Interlaken’s Harder Kulm is a classic on a sunny day. It is easily accessible with the Harderbahn funiculaire and the views are simply magnificient from the ‘Top of Interlaken’. Equally impressive are the crowds and throngs of people all vying for the best view. What better than avoiding all those other people by enjoying the magnificient views from high above while soaring the Interlaken sky during a paragliding flight.
With every turn the view changes…...
You see the world famous snowcapped Eiger, Mönch & Jungfrau mountains coming ever closer…..
The lakes glitter like a diamant….
Gazing across the lake of Thun you see the impressive silhouette of the Niesen mountain, aptly nicknamed the Swiss pyramid…
It is stunning….it is unbeatable…..and it is definitely one-of-a-kind!
This amazing sunny paragliding experience is just priceless and one of Switzerland's unique experiences you just can't miss out on!
We have all dreamed about that moment when we are soaring through the sky, flying like a bird or gliding like a eagle closing in to it's nest. It is one of those ultimate fantasies that seem unreachable and too far-fetched. Not in Interlaken, Switzerland’s adventure travel capital and the paragliding capital of the world!
Paragliding: a must-do activity in Interlaken
No matter from which direction you come, arriving in Interlaken, you will firstly notice the gorgeous mountains, but secondly (and unmissable) you'll see the dozens of paragliders flying through the sky high above town and the surrounding mountain peaks. No matter if you look North, in the direction of Interlaken’s home mountain the Harder Kulm, or South, towards the towering Schynige Platte (backed up by the stunning Jungfrau) you will see paragliders floating through the sky.
Arriving by train at the Interlaken West or East train station you get the impression they are flying so low you can touch them.. but where would they land you wonder?
You get off the train and follow the string of paragliders soaring over the town center.. and step-by-step you close in on the epicenter of Interlaken Paragliding: the Höhematte! This grassy, green and very open park is located right in the middle of town and is the landing field for the uncountable paragliding fans that fly daily through Interlaken’s sky.
