Join us on a twin hiking and flying tour over the Chüemettler in the Appenzell Alps, Switzerland. On this unique trip, you will not only hike through idyllic landscapes of pasturelands and verdant forests but also fly over the spectacular Alps!

Located in the Appenzell Alps, Chüemettler( 1,702m m) overlooks the beautiful lake of Walensee. This understated peak lies very close to Europe’s famous Speer mountain. However, unlike the Speer, the broad back of Chüemettler offers a much better starting point for paragliding.

Our unique trip will begin from the charming village of Rufi.  A short drive through rustic country roads will take us to the starting point of the hike. The trail leads across striking meadows and lush forests to reach Oberbogm, an alpine farm. From there, we’ll ascend the Gleiterspitz mountain on a somewhat flat terrain past the northwest flank of Chüemettler. A steep hike along the Kraxelstellen will take us to the summit.

After a total trek of about 5 hours, we’ll reach the top. Taking in beautiful mountainous views and some fresh air, you’ll strap your belts and set off. It will be breathtaking to glide over the picturesque landscape.  Furthermore, you will be able to choose whether to fly solo or in tandem.

So, what are you waiting for? Get ready to hike the Chüemettler and go paragliding over the Appenzell Alps in Switzerland!
