Full description

Experience the thrill of a tandem paragliding flight with an experienced instructor. The launch will take place from Monte Tamaro in Switzerland at analtitude of approximately 700 m .

The instructor will give a short introductory briefing to give you some information and help you put on your harness. You will then be ready for a wonderful 15-minute scenic flight, during which you will have an unforgettable landscape at your feet.

You will see from above Lake Maggiore and Lake Lugano, the beautiful town of Bellinzona and the delta of the River Maggia, all framed by the highest peaks of the Alps.

What we will do

We will meet at the Monte Tamaro cable car in Rivera, where our experienced instructor will be waiting for us with the paraglider and all the equipment. We will take the cable car up to the point from which we will make our launch.

The take-off point is just 10 m from the cable car exit. Once there, we will have a small briefing: the pilot will give us all the essential information about the flight and help us with the harness and seat. We will then be able to enjoy the flight in comfort and experience the thrill of launching and hovering in the sky, with the paraglider guided by the updrafts.

This will be a very scenic flight of about 15 minutes from an altitude of 700 m. We will have a breathtaking panorama at our feet, where valleys alternate with high mountains. We will see the delta of the Maggia river, the city of Locarno, the 1670 m high peak of Cimetta and the calm waters of Lake Maggiore and Lake Lugano.

The instructor will fly the paraglider so that we can also admire Bellinzona with the highest and most imposing ridges of the Alps in the background.

The landing will take place near the meeting point. Overall, the activity will last about one hour.
