Tandem flying in the Salzkammergut Experience your dream of flying!

Whether young or old, a paragliding tandem flight is an unforgettable experience from children to old age. On a tandem paragliding flight, you fly as a passenger with an experienced pilot who controls the paraglider and gives you all the necessary instructions.

Previous experience is not necessary as the pilot explains everything and takes care of everything. Flights usually last about 15-20 minutes, but can be longer depending on weather conditions and thermals.
