Tandem paragliding in Ötztal

Far above the valley

Fulfill your dream of flying! Experience the Tyrolean mountains from a bird's eye view on a paragliding tandem flight.

Our experienced pilots will take you safely to the valley!

The Hoch Ötz flight area is located at the entrance to the Ötztal in the middle of the Tyrolean mountains. Due to the large difference in altitude of 1350m and the optimal orientation, it has been popular with hang gliders and paragliders for decades.

Tandem paragliding Ötztal


When you arrive at the mountain station you will receive your equipment including a helmet and gloves.

After about a ten-minute walk we reach the starting point. There the glider is prepared for the flight and we practice the take-off run together so that you know exactly what to expect.

3,2,1, go… After a few steps, we take off into the third dimension, you sit in the comfortable harness and enjoy the breathtaking view.

Soft and in the last few meters, with almost no forward movement, we touch down on the large landing area and walk a few more steps. The earth has us again.

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......
