Paragliding in Salzburg


A paragliding flight in Zell am See – Kaprun is one of them most exciting activities of your summer or winter vacation.

The Schmittenhöhe is known far beyond the Austrian borders among paragliders. It's not just the view of Lake Zell, the Hohe Tauern National Park with the Kitzsteinhorn glacier ski area and the surrounding grassy mountains that is unique. The thermal conditions, the starting points and the altitude difference of 1,200 m are also unparalleled.

The updrafts (thermals) are particularly reliable here. Our starting points enable us Takeoffs in almost every direction.

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
