Paragliding in Salzburger Land

The “Home of Lässig” is not only known for perfect slopes and mountain biking. Enjoy the region from the air while paragliding!

In summer and winter we fly with numerous guests of the Home of Lässig on the Schmittenhöhe because we find even more ideal wind conditions here, which can be reached in just a few minutes from Saalbach Hinterglemm.

Kössen in Tyrol

Every summer countless paragliding enthusiasts come to Kössen because of the good thermals, cable car and the complete infrastructure.

Kössen is probably the most famous flying area in Europe and has developed into a Mecca for the scene over the decades.

The difference in altitude is slightly smaller here than on the Schmittenhöhe and therefore a little cheaper, but the view of the Kaiser Mountains is second to none!

Tandem paragliding in

Bramberg Neukirchen

Oberpinzgau is also waiting for you with great flights from Wildkogel. Depending on the starting point, we reach the mountain from Bramberg or Neukirchen. The views of the Hohe Tauern National Park and the Großvenediger from the air will captivate you.

From midday on we fly on the Schmittenhöhe because the take-off wind on the Wildkogel no longer allows save take-offs.

Today, January 11, 2024, I had my first paragliding tandem flight from Schmittenhöhe/Zell am See into the valley. The pilot was very safety conscious and took great souvenir photos during the flight. I'm looking forward to spring so I can take a longer flight than today. So I can only recommend Falken Air. Update 1/13/24 I'm still fascinated by my flight. Actually, I was a bit afraid of it at first... but because I had already told a few people beforehand, I ended up flying. ...and it was just total freedom between heaven and earth. I think I felt like my spirit animal (Chinese) the eagle. So incredibly free and... I'm just still speechless, so beautiful....🙂🍀🙂

This was a particularly nice tandem flight with Josef. Started on the Schmittenhöhe in beautiful weather and optimal thermals. A really great experience to experience the altitude, the landscape, nature and flying. The wonderful view of Lake Zell, the snow-covered Kitzsteinhorn, the reservoirs, etc. - a uniquely beautiful experience. I can particularly recommend it. And the landing soft and delicate......
