CHF 250.–

Flight: Double Airtime

The Double Airtime flight is exactly that - double the usual flying time! This is a thermic flight of 30-40 minutes (instead of 15-20 minutes) taking off in Murren; and is dependent on thermic conditions of the day.

To book a Double Airtime flight, simply book a "The Wall" flight on or after 11:15 - you will have the opportunity to upgrade to Double Airtime on the day. If conditions are good, you will land and pay the difference, if not, you will have enjoyed an epic Wall flight. You can’t lose!

Reviews

What our passengers say about us

Visit us on TripAdvisor

“This is by far the most incredible thing we have ever done. Flying off the cliff near Murren above the waterfalls & floating all along the cliffs of the Lauterbrunnen Valley was life changing.”

“I am so afraid of heights but was blessed to be on this trip to Switzerland with my husband and 11 year old son so I took the leap! Hands down one of the most amazing experiences!”

“My husband’s favorite day of our 3 1/2 weeks in Europe this past summer was the tandem paragliding he did in Lauterbrunnen, Switzerland.”

“This was the absolute highlight of an already amazing trip to Switzerland! You HAVE to do this!”

“The experience of truly seeing the world from a bird’s-eye view brought tears to my eyes.”

Your questions answered

How does it work?2021-03-05T07:07:24+00:00

We take a short walk to our take-off area (a 10 minute uphill walk from Mürren), where your pilot will provide a comprehensive briefing. There is no jumping and no cliff edge – you simply take a few running steps and the paraglider lifts you and your pilot into the air, where you will sit comfortably while soaring over the Alps!

Is transport included?2021-03-05T07:31:02+00:00

The cablecar journey to Murren is NOT included in the flight price. *

You are welcome to make your own way to Murren and meet your pilot directly there – thus making the most of your cablecar ticket!

Guests travelling by car should park at the Stechelberg Schilthornbahn Cablecar Station and meet us either there or in Murren. Our driver can also collect you from Lauterbrunnen and give you a ride to the Stechelberg Schilthornbahn Cablecar Station, where you will buy a ticket and take this cablecar to Murren.

A single journey Stechelberg – Murren takes 10 minutes and is 11.40chf.

*We recommend that guests check their travel pass, as the journey may be covered*

Do I need to be fit?2021-03-05T07:07:55+00:00

You don’t need to be an athlete, but you do need to be able to take a few running steps to take off.

What is the age limit?2021-03-05T07:08:02+00:00

There isn’t one! We suggest a minimum age of 5 for kids, and there is NO upper age limit.

What is the weight limit?2021-03-05T07:08:07+00:00

100kg / 220lbs. This is not absolutely set in stone, it can also be affected by flying conditions on the day, and body shape – the harness must fit you safely.  Safety always comes first and, although we will try our best to take you flying, we do reserve the right to cancel flights if you are on or above the weight limit.

What should I wear?2021-03-05T07:08:51+00:00

Wear what you would wear to hike. Layered clothing, and good shoes (no flip flops!).

Can I take a bag?2021-03-05T07:09:01+00:00

Yes, if it is a small bag. If it is too large to fly with, you can simply send it down via cable car for a few francs (ask at the Schilthornbahn cablecar station for details), and collect it at landing!

Can I take a camera?2021-03-05T07:33:12+00:00

Yes, as long as it is a compact camera/GoPro and can be secured to you. No DSLRs, removable lenses or phones, for safety reasons.

How long is the flight?2021-01-01T10:03:08+00:00

The flight time is approximately 15-20 minutes, depending on thermic conditions. Our Double Airtime flight is just that – double the airtime, at 30-40 minutes. Our pilots are not restricted by time and endeavour to ensure the flight lasts as long as the conditions allow – normally longer than our minimum timings.

How high is the flight?2021-01-01T10:03:08+00:00

We take off in Mürren at 1650m, around 850 metres above our landing field in Stechelberg (800m); and we are able to soar much higher, using thermals, if conditions allow!

Where do we land?2021-01-01T10:03:08+00:00

Just next to the Schilthornbahn cablecar station, in Stechelberg. We can give you a ride back to Lauterbrunnen, or if you are feeling especially energised from your flight, the walk along the valley takes less than 1 hour! Based in Mürren? Simply hop on the cablecar.
