Amazing experience. I would recommend this to everyone. The wether was bad in the day I ibitially booked it but I was staying in Innsbruck for 4 days so they kept in touch and we talked every morning and one morning I got lucky cause it was very sunny. Great communication, very professional. It was so amazing and actually relaxing and meditative the whole expetience. You have to try it if you are around. Also if you are staying a bit more in the area, book it in your first day cause if the weather is bad in that day maybe the next one will be great.

Amazing experience and worth trying. Peter - the owner is very helpful. He even offered us a pick up to the site and shared lots of information about the area. Will definitely do the flight again

Very professional team! Had no issues at take off-paragliding chute filled with air quickly, took a few steps with the pilot, and then we were in the air.

Mega experience with thermal flight. I felt safe at all times and toyed with the idea of starting. Definitely try it out!

Good guide, neat material and a very nice adventurous trip. Recommended!
