Tandem Paragliding in Interlaken

1. Tandem Paragliding in Interlaken

Feel what it's like to be free as a bird as you float weightlessly through the air - the age-old dream of being able to fly has come true. Without any prior experience, you can accompany a seasoned pilot and discover the Jungfrau Region from a bird’s-eye view. A few simple steps are all it takes to enter a totally new world. Experience the breathtaking sensation of leaving the ground below you and flying freely into the air. The pilots have many years of experience and have taken thousands of flights. They'll teach you how to fly. You will start at Beatenberg in Amisbühl, at a height of 1,350 meters, and fly to Höhematte in Interlaken, a height of 550 meters. Your flight will last around 10-30 minutes, depending on wind conditions.

Interlaken: Funicular Ticket to Harder Kulm

2. Interlaken: Funicular Ticket to Harder Kulm

If Interlaken had a king, he would reside on the Harder Kulm. Take a short walk from the Interlaken-Ost railway station to the Harder Kulm Railway valley station. From there, hop on the funicular in Interlaken and climb up the mountainside. Enjoy stunning views of the scenic mountain landscape. Once you ride to the top, check out the viewing platform which is 1,322 meters (!) above sea level. Marvel at the snowy peaks of the Eiger, Mönch, and Jungfrau. Enjoy the spectacular view from the “Two-Lakes- Bridge,” where you can see the sapphire-blue lakes Brienz and Thun. Feel the thrill of standing on top of a glass-bottomed viewing platform. If you look down, you’ll really get to see what 1,322 meters look like. Visit the restaurant on top of the Harder Kulm. Although the restaurant looks like a castle, you won’t need to be a king to enjoy royal service. Relax as you admire the magnificent view of the sun setting behind the mountains. Choose when you want to make your descent down the mountain. Trains leave every 30 minutes and the last departure is at 9:40 pm.

What people are saying about Interlaken

Stefan was my pilot and he was amazing! Put me at ease and although we set off for our flight first (went up early with another company) we were the last on the ground after their pilots, he was able to keep us in the air for a good while . Made the experience for me, thank you . Stunning views as well and lovely pictures and videos for 40 extra which are worth it.

An absolute must in Switzerland! All of the instructors were great and friendly. Lewis was my instructor and he made me feel completely confident and spoke me through the whole thing when I needed a little encouragement, very easy going and good fun. Would recommend to everyone.

I loved everything about it, most importantly, the hospitality & nice vibes from the guys responsible of the team.

I loved the view. It’s a different experience altogether. I fell in love with the silence.

Fred was an excellent paraglider! Thank you for the best experience of the year so far :)
