My 25 year old daughter and I did the Tandem Paragliding while in Interlaken. What an experience! Our guides, (she had Rafael and I had Sonia), were friendly, knowledgeable, and made us feel quite comfortable. It was a beautiful day and to float/glide over Interlaken with views of the Alps and two lakes (Brienzersee and Thunersee) was magnificent. Not scary at all. You can ask for tricks, like rollercoaster, which each of us did - and it was so much fun! But you don't have to - you can just glide or float the entire way down. As soon as we were done we wanted to do it again! I'd rate this 10 stars if I could. It's not that expensive (compared to the skydiving in Interlaken), and worth every penny!!

Their office is located in the middle of interlaken on the Main Street where majority of the hotels and restaurants are located. If you are driving, there are plenty of public parkings on the street. They took us by a small bus to a 20mins drive to top of a cliff. After a bit of a hike, we prepared for the take off. Instructions were easy and clear. The most important thing was to RUN for takeoff as this is the most critical point. After that, leave everything to the pilot who will make your experience worth while... During the end, we did some tricks and activity which made the whole experience wonderful... Overall a wonderful experience worth doing...

I had Tommy (pronounced with an apostrophe) over ‘o’ as my pilot and it was a great experience. Flying over the sky and with a decent conversation with the pilot I was able to control a palpitating heart which eventually settled to a thrilling view of lake Thun and the majestic Jungfraugh and its sister mountains at a distance. Tommy was careful to understand the right experience and the pictures and video turned awesome. Thanks to the team for making it a memorable day during my stay in Switzerland.

Ever wonder what it's like to fly? This is it. I was a little nervous during our ascent to our take-off point, but once we arrived and harnessed up, the scenery below takes your breath away. My pilot was Timo, who was very kind and light-hearted. You literally take a running start off the side of a hill and you're in the air. As you float and glide through the air, both Lake Thun and Lake Brienz come into view. The Swiss Alps further afield are just as breathtaking. Our flight lasted about 15 minutes. It was a beautiful day and an incredible way to see Switzerland.

Incredible!! This was my first time paragliding, and it was outstanding. All of the pilots were very friendly and professional. My pilot was Drew, and he was great :. I felt safe the entire time - in fact, I found it to be very relaxing. I could have stayed in the air all day. Definitely recommend this activity!

If you are in Interlaken this is a MUST DO. I almost cancelled this excursion, but the kind agent from this paragliding organization rescheduled my booking time, and low and behold I made it up there! I am so glad I did. The views were magnificent and surprisingly calming. Much thanks to my pilot who took good care of me, thank you!!

Never miss this experience in Interlaken. I tried with my daughter a lifetime experience. Pilots Tom and Pascal were funny and very professional that gave us a great feel of safety.

This is a must do and worth the price. This was a once in a lifetime activity for us. My husband and teenage children 19 and 14 said it was and still is the best part of our European vacation. I have never seen my husband smile so big. All three were on an adrenaline high for the rest of the day. In fact, now we are home and they are still telling people about it. Each of the Paragliders were super friendly and supportive. My daughter was initially concerned, but her guide made her feel safe and comfortable. We cannot recommend this excursion highly enough.

The paragliding experience was above and beyond what I personally had anticipated. The process was easy and efficient and the jump and ride down was a once in a lifetime experience. The pilots were great and made everyone feel safe and comfortable. I will do it again and seek extra air time on the next trip. Tim M.

AMAZING!!! It was so much fun to glide through the air and feel completely safe and see the views we had! My husband and I both enjoyed our different operators and didn't have any issues with their instructions for take off or landing. We thought the company was great at instructions and check in and taking us to the drop off point. This is by far a MUST DO!!

This was definitely a once in a lifetime experience! I had never been paragliding before and I was told that that's the best thing to do in Interlaken so I decided to give it a go. I would definitely recommend it to anybody who has it on their mind and wants an adrenaline rush. Great experience!

What a great experience! They pick you up from your hotel or you can meet in town. All of the guides were great, very friendly and knowledgeable and spoke English. It's a 10 minute drive up the mountain and a 5 minute easy hike to the spot where you take off. Depending on how the wind is moving, you're up in the air for 10-15 minutes. Most nerve-wracking part is the take-off since you're basically running off a mountain, but the ride down is pretty relaxing and so beautiful, and you have a pilot with you the entire time. They have photos and video of your trip you can purchase. Loved my photos, they're so neat and worth the extra ! I'm sure clear days are great, but I rode when it was cloudy and it was still wonderful. I highly highly recommend!
