Tandem Paraglider flight from Hintertuxer Gletscher

On the Hintertuxer Gletscher is the highest Paraglider take off place in Austria, on 3250 meter.

If we have ideal wind conditions in fact 0 high wind or light breeze from North-West we can start at the Gletscherbus 3. At light North wind we have a take off place on 3000 meters as well.

Because of the exosed location and the great hight next to the high mountain range is a flight not always working. You need a bit of weather luck in your holidays, then its possible to make this magic flight safely.

With favorable wind conditions, it is a dream to glid over glacier ice.

Because of the thin air on over 3000 meters it is recommended ( also in summer) to launch with skis. With special snowblades from us you can tighten the bindings on your mountain boots.


Passenger weight is from 20 kg -> 85 kg.
