Paragliding In Switzerland

They say ”Jobs fill your pockets, Adventures fill your soul!”
After skydiving in New Zealand I thought that must be the craziest thing I’ve ever done but no, I landed up Paragliding. Last year when I was in Switzerland on a family vacation my brother and husband bullied me into accompanying them to jump off a mountain. At first the idea sounded crazy but then I didn’t want to miss this chance and regret it all my life. I don’t think there’s a better place in the world to paraglide. The mystical beauty of Interlaken is just perfect to charm you while you’re floating above the city, a thought that actually tempted me to do this.

We opted for a company called Twin Paragliding which we booked through our hotel concierge. Their car came to pick us up and took us to the office where we changed our shoes, got jackets and helmets and left our valuables. We were then driven up to a mountain by a team of 3 professional gliders and each of us was assigned one. My glider was simply the best she made me feel so comfortable and explained the procedure so well. So once you reach on top of the mountain there are little runways made from where you can jump off. Trust me it wasn’t so difficult or scary as it looks. Before I could even realize I was floating over the city.

It was one of the best experiences of my life! I prefer this over skydiving because here you can actually relax and enjoy the view and the thrill of gliding off a mountain is inexplicable. Well if it scares you it might be a good thing to try. I highly recommend you to do this in Interlaken. Just remember everything you’ve wanted is on the other side of fear!

  1. Looks like such an incredible experience! One of my friends studied abroad in Switzerland and went paragliding and I’ve always wanted to since then! That video make it look so fun :)

  2. This was our first paragliding experience! It was such an awesome feeling and the views are stunning! So glad you enjoyed it as much as we did and your pictures are beautiful!

  3. That paragliding looks like so much fun. It seems like it’s a bit scary but a lot more relaxed than sky diving and bungee jumping. I like the selfie stick. I guess the selfie stick is strapped on so you don’t drop it?

  4. I did paragliding in Florida last year but I enjoyed skydiving most as there is an ultimate adrenaline rush! Looks like you had so much fun doing it!

  5. Your video is really cool and seems you had actually lived the moment. Your pictures and the views from the top are amazing. I am too gonna try it soon.
