Let the wind bear you gently through the air on a paraglider. Your tandem pilot ensures your safety while pointing out the wonders of nature from a bird’s-eye perspective. Although paragliding can be enjoyed year-round, it is an extra special experience in winter.

Skydiving – jump from an aircraft or helicopter

In the company of a guide, jump headlong from a helicopter or aircraft and plummet towards earth at a velocity of 200 km/h. What a rush! Enjoy the sense of freedom as you fall through the air for around 40 seconds before your parachute opens and you float to a soft landing.

Genuine highs include a bungee jump from the Stockhorn cable car over Lake Hinterstocken or a canyon swing into the majestic glacial gorge in Grindelwald. Preparing for the leap of your life at a dizzying height, you can smell the tang of adventure on the fresh mountain air.
