Description

While it may last less than 2 hours, this tandem flight, paragliding adventure will create enough memories to last a lifetime. During that short, but thrilling time, you will get to glide over St. Gilgen and Lake Wolfgang in Austria.

Our trip will begin at the Zwölferhorn cable car in St. Gilgen. After a short, but scenic cable car ride, we will launch from the Zwölferhorn mountain (1,522m). However, based on wind conditions, we may also launch from other mountains including Gaisberg (1,288m), Loser (1,838m) or Krippenstein (2,108m). Guided by an experienced pilot, you will get to focus entirely on the gorgeous Salzkammergut region of Austria. You will be able to gaze down, for approximately 10-20 minutes, but possibly more if you wish, at the area’s collection of lakes and mountains. We will then land back at St. Gilgen either by running or sitting, while sliding on our harness’ protective airbag.

Paragliding is a hugely rewarding activity. It provides participants with a means to see so much in a relatively short amount of time. And because of the great heights you will get to reach, you will feel as if you can see the entirety of the Austrian state of Salzburg.

No experience is necessary for this trip. Anybody as young as 6 years old can enjoy it.

So if you would like to enjoy some exciting paragliding in one of the most beautiful regions of Austria, just send me a request. I would be happy to guide you on a flight you will never forget.

About the guide

Being out in nature, feeling the wind in my face and flying above the world. This is what I live for!

I fell in love with paragliding while travelling in New Zealand in 2005 and never stopped since.

In Austria, at the Salzkammergut Lake District where I live, we have many nice mountains to fly off with stunning views at the clear turquoise water of the lakes.

Our main paragliding mountain is the Zwölferhorn in St. Gilgen at Wolfgangsee lake. Here we can find the best conditions to paraglide nearly during the whole year.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
