EARLY BIRD, CLASSIC, ROYAL - which flight should I book?

Our guest are as diverse as each of our individual flight adventures. We offer different packages during different times of the day and flight conditions, to cater the right experience for each of our flight guest.

EARLY BIRD (25 – 75 kg / 55 – 165 lbs)
From May to August, we meet as early as 9:00 am for our first flight of the day. In smooth conditions and mostly still air, we float into the valley. A very pleasant mountain and flight experience, ideal for children, people of a lighter weight and sensitive passengers.

CLASSIC (30 – 90 kg / 65 – 200 lbs)
With our classic, we have many options to create your very own individual flight experience. Whether you prefer to glide smoothly, want to fly high into the skies or are looking for the ultimate adrenalin rush – the choice is yours! Generally speaking: in the morning the air is smooth, offering us very enjoyable flights. In the afternoon the air becomes more lively which allows more action driven thermic flights. For passengers lighter than 45 kg, schedules after 12:00 noon are not suitable.

ROYAL (45 – 90 kg / 100 – 200 lbs)
Our big air flight, we only offer during the time of day and the time of year with the best thermic conditions. Like a bird, we make full use of the given up winds and circle up into lofty heights. A full on adventure in naturally very lively air, combined with lots of action and movement, suitable for sporty people and flight enthusiasts (not for people with a weak stomach).

What is the best time of year to fly?

Winter, spring, summer or autumn – the flight experiences can be as diverse as the seasons themselves. Though paragliding in Allgäu/Bavaria has a special charm throughout the year.

WINTER
Snow-white peaks, peaceful mountain landscapes, crystal clear skies – that is the winter in Allgäu/Bavaria seen from above. The low standing sun creates a fascinating play of light and especially the calm flying conditions, with the air mostly still, is what turns winter flights into pure pleasure.

SPRING
The last snow together with the freshly blossoming of nature – spring bestows us with especially varied views onto the mountain and lake scape of the Allgäu region. At this colourful time of year the air is becoming more alive and offers us the opportunities for more extensive flights.

SUMMER
The warmth of the sun in your face and a cool air stream stroking your skin. Now the thermal winds fully come alive und the skies are painted by many colourful paraglider. Due to the holidays June to September is our main and busiest season. Make sure to book your adventure as soon as possible!

AUTUMN
Stoked by the colors, we float on the calm autumn air through golden yellow light. Clouds and mist create magical moments in the sky. Combined with a hike to the top of the mountain, the subsequent flight back to the valley promises pure relaxation! Our flight season ends mid of October.

What should I wear?

Ideally we recommend that you wear what you would for hiking in the mountains. Hiking boots, for stability and a secure grip on alpine terrain. Trekking trousers or jeans, a warming midlayer, windbreaker, gloves, sunglasses.

Can I take a camera?

Compact cameras or smart phones can be carried along, as long as they are secured tightly. Before the flight this has to be discussed with the pilot in charge. Please do not bring DSLR cameras, interchangeable lenses or telescopic lenses. Here we recommend our FOTO & VIDEO SERVICE.
