To fly like a bird without burning your wings a thrilling ride on a paraglider is just the ticket ! In Leysin the take-off zone is at the top of Berneuse with a landing strip down in the village, both sites easily accessible.
Using the Berneuse cable car, paragliders are quickly ready for take-off from the designated zone at an altitude of 2’048m. A few steps in the direction of the Kuklos revolving restaurant is all it takes to set up your parachute and get ready to launch.
It’s a simply breathtaking view from the summit when you look over the mountain range and the Dents du Midi and Mont Blanc in particular. Way below, Lake Léman stretches out in all its immense glory with views of the Montreux riviera and the French shores.
For novices who adore beautiful scenery as well as an adrenalin rush, tandem flights are on offer all year round. In summer the view looking down on the hikers and animals in the pastures below is just magnificent. In winter, the pristine white cloak of snow bestows a majestic feel to the landscape.
