Join me on this exhilarating, exciting and enjoyable day of hiking and paragliding in the mighty Schwyz Alps, Switzerland, and we will experience the raw natural beauty of the area through a thrilling combination of hiking around the Glärnisch mountain massif and then flying above and through the valleys, being exposed to absolutely magnificent views out over the picture-perfect Swiss countryside.

The Schwyz Alps are a mountain range nestled within the North-Eastern Swiss Alps in Switzerland, with the prominent peak of Glärnisch (2915m) the focal point. It is an increasingly popular sport for outdoor activities, with hiking and paragliding proving well liked in Summer.

Our day begins when we meet in the valley of Klontal, featuring the impressive lake of the same name, and from there we begin our adventure in earnest.

The starting point is behind Sackberg, and this is where we begin our ascent to the Vorder Glärnisch, and once we reach the paragliding spot (1300m), this is where we indulge in the highlight of the day, the solo or tandem flight.

It is hard to overstate how special, sublime and mind-blowing the views out over the Swiss landscape, scenery and terrain are, as your flight takes you over the best of the area, with mesmerizing lakes and vast green valleys proving superb.

After landing, and after the adrenaline has worn off, we then enter the main hiking part of the day, as we traipse and travail over the rocky terrain and massive gullies all the way to the summit of the Vorder Glärnisch (2327m), with yet more sweeping panoramic views taking the breath away.

We then descend down the mountain and finish our journey, positively thrilled and satisfied at the truly awesome things we have packed in to our day in this beautiful part of Switzerland.

See the gorgeous natural surroundings of Switzerland in a crazy and fun way – book now to experience!
