  • Launch from the beautiful Zwolferhorn mountain overlooking Lake Wolfgang.

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.



There are comfortable accommodation options in St. Gilgen that I would be happy to recommend to you.


If the wind and weather conditions are not conducive for a safe flight on your reserved day, we will try to let you know as soon as possible and reschedule another, more fitting day.
