Feel free as a bird

Have you always dreamt of flying through the air like a bird? Hang gliding is the closest you can get to that experience. Interlaken is a popular resort offering the perfect conditions for hang gliders. Enjoy the views of Lakes and Brienz and the Bernese Alps with your professional tandem pilot during your 10-20-minute hang glider flight.

From take-off to landing

You and your tandem pilot drive to the take-off site in Beatenberg, where the hang glider is prepared for take-off. You are given instructions for a safe flight before your flight,  then your adventure begins: Six to eight steps and you take off on your hang glider. Feel how the sail of your hang glider carries you and enjoy the view of the world-famous Three Peaks – the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau. You will descend 800 metres during your flight from Beatenberg to Interlaken and, at the end of your spectacular flight, you land safely and quietly on wheels. An experience you won't forget in a hurry. You can also set off on tandem hang glider flights from other locations in the Bernese Oberland. Please contact the respective providers for more information.
