Paraglide in the Swiss Alps

Details

Added by Jeremy Meek

Soaring through whimsical clouds, surrounded by majestic peaks, and floating over quaint Swiss villages. Sign me up!

There are few places that are quite as magical as the Swiss Alps. Towering peaks, rich culture, iconic architecture, and rolling green pastures; it's a storybook setting. 

While there are a multitude of ways to enjoy Switzerland, paragliding amidst the Swiss Alps tops the list. Once the snow melts (and sometimes before!), paragliding commences from many mountaintops in Switzerland. Thanks to a variety of tandem paragliding tour operators, there are a variety of places you can experience this once-in-a-lifetime adventure. However, I have to say I am a bit partial to Grindelwald. Tucked into a pocket of the Swiss Alps, this quaint town provides a perfect setting for you to soar over (a tad more idyllic than neighboring Interlaken). Don't let the clouds scare you away; as long as your pilot can get an opening, flying through the clouds adds a whimsical awe to the paragliding experience. 

There are a number of operators eager to take your money, but give Paragliding-Jungfrau a try in the first instance. They will assist with your shuttle or chair lift ride up to the top of the mountain of choice.
