Feel as free as a bird during your holidays in Gastein.
Glide weightlessly through the sky, enjoy the panoramas from high above, and hear nothing but the air rushing past your ears. When you see those colorful sails in the sky, as they glide ever so gently down towards the valley floor, you are gripped by the yearning to give paragliding a try for yourself. Make this dream come true during your vacation in Gastein. From the top of the Fulseck outside Dorfgastein, Gastein's most popular mountain for aviators, you will be able to embark on a tandem flight with Lois Grugger, a professional paragliding instructor. It's something practically everyone can do, with no experience necessary. Of course, if you want to get the most out of the experience, you shouldn't be too afraid of heights.
Enjoy a bird's-eye view of the endless panoramas of the Hohe Tauern peaks and all of Gastein Valley.
You can experience those spectacular aerial views of Gastein both summer and winter, just so long as the weather cooperates. In summer, regular hiking clothes will suffice, though short clothing is not such a good idea since it is considerably colder up in the air than down on the ground. In winter, you'll need winter clothing and your launch requires skiing briefly downhill. Regardless of whether you wish to go paragliding during a winter holiday or a summer vacation, the sight of lush green meadows and glistening white fields of snow far below is guaranteed to be breathtaking at any time of year.
Experienced paraglider pilots are also certain to love Gastein. Flights at altitudes of as much as 1400 meters, soaring in thermals, plus long-range flights are all possible in the skies above Gastein. The thermals in Gastein's mountain world are generally good, allowing you to stay airborne for extended periods. Taking off from the Fulseck, there's even an excellent chance you'll set a personal record! And of course, you are permitted to transport your glider with you on the gondolas.
A dream becomes true! The dream flies.
