Description

Get ready for the adventure of a lifetime! Join me to hike towards the peak of the Breithorn, Switzerland and paraglide on the way back.

The Breithorn, with an altitude of 4,164 meters, is a glaciered mountain crest with many summits. It offers one of the easiest mountaineering route for a four-thousand meter mountain and is therefore seeked by many hikers looking to get a sense of high Alpine air.

For this paragliding experience, we’ll take the cable car to Klein Matterhorn and climb for an hour and 45 minutes to the top. The ascent is not a difficult one, even if you don’t have experience. On our way down, we’ll paraglide for 40 minutes while everybody else needs to hike back down, and land in Zermatt.

Our take-off point is at the peak from the north face. If the weather is good to us, we’ll have dynamic up-winds that will take us through the ridge of the Breithorn making all other mountaineers jealous. If the weather is a bit complicated, we’ll take off 5 walking minutes lower on the south side. We’ll fly between Klein Matterhorn and Breithorn towards Zermatt.

This trip is definitely unique since not many people have been able to paraglide from a four-thousand meter peak. Are you ready to be one of the lucky few? Book your trip now. I can guarantee you’ll be fascinated by it.

If you can’t get enough of paragliding, I also offer other trips from Rothorn and from Riffelberg.
