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.

The flight was absolutely amazing. I am 71 and did a tandem paragliding jump for my 70th birthday last year. The gliding flight topped this experience. There are four competitors for paragliding in Zell am See. I made the right choice with Falken Air and I was lucky enough to fly with Josef and Sepp, to glide and to experience the globe from a different perspective. The experiences in the air are relative or a matter of opinion. The process, support and execution of the tandem paragliding was highly professional and characterized by absolute safety. Many thanks to the entire Falken Air team around Sepp. I recommend that you take everything you can get. You will never forget the looping event. With the great, professional pictures and videos you can share this unique experience with your friends. Thank you again, stay healthy everyone and best wishes from Leipzig Lutz and Ludwig

I was surprised with this gift for my birthday. It was a complete success. Despite being nervous, I always felt very safe thanks to Winni's calm, professional manner. Thanks again. It won't be my last flight. Extremely impressive!

On June 24th, I (74 years old) fulfilled a dream and completed a fantastic tandem paragliding flight with Falken Air. It was overwhelming for me and will remain unforgettable. The team was super friendly and seemed very competent. Special thanks go to the one and only Christine. "Christine, you are amazing!" Thank you for this indescribably beautiful experience. Best wishes from the Erzgebirge from Karin

It was my first time paragliding and I can say that it was nothing short of amazing! The whole process was really easy from booking to the flight. If any Muslim women in Zellamsee are looking to paragliding, I'd definitely recommend Christina. She was very friendly and clear with instructions, and didn't hesitate to answer any questions I had before and during the flight which made me feel really comfortable. Overall a very pleasant experience, would try it again if I visit Zellamsee again! Thank you Christina and Falken air!

My daughter and I decided at short notice to do a tandem flight. We made an appointment for the next day by phone. The weather was good and we had a great experience with our pilots. The pictures and videos turned out great and are a lovely memory. When we are back in Zell am See we want to do another flight. I can only recommend it. Great crew
