Description

This paralpinism adventure combines the incredible experiences of mountaineering with the soaring vistas of paragliding!  You will summit a 4,000 meter peak in the Swiss Alps before taking off from the mountain and flying back to town!

Our journey begins in Interlaken.  From there, we hop on the train that takes us through the tunnels of the Eiger, where we can admire the interior of the legendary mountain. After we disembark the train, we head to the Mönschjoch Hut, where we will rest and sleep before our early 3AM summit push.

Our journey to the summit begins with a gentle glacier walk.  Then, we have an easy climb up rock before we cross a snow covered saddle.  After this, we have two more hours remaining until we reach the summit.  The landscape steepens as we continue, and, depending on conditions, we might have to use belays during certain passages.  For the most part, the terrain is ice and snow, with a few sections of exposed rock.

Once we reach the summit, we will take in the view at 4,158 meters, enjoying our accomplishment.  Then, we prepare for our flight by descending about 50m to the summit of Wengen Jungfrau, which will be our take-off point.  After soaring above the valley for 18km, we touch down in the center Interlaken, which will surely amuse the tourists!

Note that Jungfrau is a steeper and more technical mountain than Allalinhorn or Weissmies.  You should be comfortable walking with crampons and using an ice axe.  In order to participate in this program, you will be required to provide a reference of a similarly difficult peak you’ve climbed.

Paralpinism, like all air sports, is very dependent on weather. So if you like to fly and ski, hike or climb you must be ready to change your target at the last minute. I can´t guarantee that we’ll be able to fly but I promise to do my best to make it happen and have a beautiful and safe journey. 
 
This is how it works :
 
a) We set a date, a mountain range and what you like to do!
b) Three days before the set date we make a first review of the weather and check if it will be possible. If it is, we continue with our project. If it’s not, we change the destination (as close as possible).
c) On the night before the trip, we organize the last few details
d) We go for it and do our best!
 Book this incredible adventure now and we will have an incredible 2 days of exploring an iconic peak of the Swiss Alps by land and by air!
