Full description

Enjoy a tandem paragliding flight in the beautiful mountains of the Val Passiria, just a few kilometres from Merano in South Tyrol.

Let yourself be carried away by the rising wind currents and admire the spectacle of nature from a more than privileged perspective!

You will fly for about 15 minutes in tandem with an experienced pilot who will guarantee you anexciting and safe experience. Get ready for take-off!

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 (BZ). The pilots' office is located to the left of the Hirzer cable car, with which we will reach the take-off point at an altitude of 1,450 metres.

We will prepare for the flight by giving a briefing on how paragliders work and on behaviour and safety rules. 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.

The scenic flight will last about 15 minutes and will offer us a spectacular view of the mountains of the Val Passiria. During the descent we will cover an altitude difference of around 1,000 metres and all we have to do is sit back and enjoy the thrills of this incredible experience.

In total, including transfers and preparation, the activity will take about 1 hour.

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.
