Paragliding and hang gliding: take to the air
Circle like an eagle above the Aletsch Arena. In Fiesch-Eggishorn, a paragliding and hang gliding mecca, trained pilots are not the only ones who can take to the skies. Even beginners have the chance to experience the freedom and liberation of flight thanks to a number of local flying schools.
Newcomers to the sport can take to the air, safely secured, in a tandem flight with an experienced professional. And for those who then get the flying bug, taster courses are a great way to take in some more "mountain air". You can even attend pilot training for paragliders or delta wings. Special courses, such as emergency parachute training and thermalling, and Alpine tours are also available.

Take to the skies with a paraglider and let yourself be carried away, ever higher and higher still. With the glacier far below you, you’re free as a bird. Try out what is probably the most liberating experience in the Aletsch Arena. After an extended flight over the Aletsch Arena, we land in the valley, where, as an expert on the glaciers, you are awarded the title of Glacier Ambassador.
