I remember chatting with my pilot Dani during our flight and it was like sharing stories around a campfire, except this one was thousands of feet above ground! Remembering the rush of indoor skydiving, I told him, 'This...this is different. This is tranquillity in the face of adrenaline.' And he said, 'No, this...this is FLYING! You are flying!'. And in that moment, I truly felt an immense sense of happiness.

As you soar over the lakes and mountains, you can't help but feel a sense of awe and wonder. It's a unique perspective that you just can't get from the ground. And the landing? It's a rush, but with your pilot guiding you, it's a smooth and controlled finish to an amazing flight

Tips for you. What to wear

When preparing for your paragliding adventure in Interlaken, it's important to dress appropriately to ensure both comfort and safety. Here are some tips on what to wear:

  1. Dress in layers: Remember, it can be cooler in the air than on the ground, so it's a good idea to layer up. ( You will be provided with a waterproof and windproof outer layer)

  2. Wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing that allows for movement. Avoid anything that might get caught in the equipment like scarves or loose jewellery,

  3. Choose sturdy footwear: You'll be running for take-off and landing, so you want shoes that offer support and protection.

  4. Protect yourself from the sun: Don't forget your sunglasses and sunscreen!

  5. Finally, if you have long hair, be sure to tie it back. You don't want it getting in your face during your flight.

Remember, comfort and safety should be your top priorities when dressing for a paragliding adventure. Dress appropriately for the weather conditions and listen to the instructions of your pilot.

My first time experience paragliding and I want more. Most memorable adventure of 2023 with my partner this summer

As someone who has always sought out new adventures, my first-time paragliding experience in Interlaken was nothing short of magical. The feeling of soaring through the sky, with the wind rushing against my face and the stunning landscape unfolding beneath me, was truly exhilarating.
