Activity description

Paragliding is the most simple, direct and beautiful way to fly. You get to play with gravity, nature and its elements with almost unbelievable simplicity.

Fly over the spectacular Mt. Titlis Glacier in Engelberg at an altitude of 1.860 metres - imagine the panoramas! You'll have views of glaciers, lakes and local wildlife such as mountain goats and eagles. 

You'll rise together with the birds into thermal air lifts and discover the 3rd dimension. Detached from everyday life you'll take off to enjoy the unforgettable impressions of nature. The adventurous ones among you can even steer the glider to feel what it's like to be in control!

Your expert pilot will choose the best flight spot depending on the weather conditions of the day. The exact flight duration depends on weather and thermal activity, the pilots always fly as long as possible with regard to passenger's comfort.

You'll climb up to the take off point using a cable car, so make sure you've bought your pass in advance!
