Full description

Enjoy an amazing tandem paragliding flight taking off from an altitude of over 2,000 metres in the mountains of the Val Passiria in South Tyrol, just a few kilometres from Merano (BZ).

You will fly for about 30 minutes carried by the ascending wind currents, for a long scenic descent that will leave you breathless!

In tandem with an experienced pilot, you will carry out the activity in total comfort and safety: all you have to do is relax and savour the great emotions of a free flight.

What we will do

We will meet in Saltusio, a hamlet of the municipality of San Martino in Passiria (BZ), less than 10 km from Merano. The pilots' office is located to the left of the Hirzer cable car, with which we will reach the mountain station at an altitude of 1,900 metres. From there, we will walk up to the take-off point at an altitude of 2,200 metres.

We will prepare for the flight by conducting a briefing on the operation of the paraglider and the rules of behaviour and safety. Then we will put on our harness and helmet and, firmly attached to the pilot, take a short run-up that will allow us to take off in a few seconds.

Thehigh altitude will allow us to fly for about 30 minutes, giving us a wide and prolonged view of the mountains of the Val Passiria. We will descend about 1,750 metres in altitude, supported by the updrafts until we reach the soft landing near the initial meeting point.

In total, including transfers and preparation, the activity will take about 1.5 hours.

Who it is aimed at

Tandem paragliding is an activity within the reach of anyone in good health, aged 5 and over, and weighing between 20 and 120 kg (pregnant women cannot fly). No specific requirements are required, just being able to take a short run.

Other information

This activity can be carried out from April to October, weather permitting.

Paragliding is an activity closely linked to weather and wind conditions. The day before the activity, the pilot will confirm the time and course after checking the latest weather report.

Videos and photos of the experience can be purchased for an extra 25€ per person if you would like to have them on a USB stick. While if you would like to receive them by e-mail, the cost is 20€ per person.
