What is the best season for paragliding in Interlaken?
Switzerland with its Alps is the perfect place for a tandem paragliding flight! Interlaken in particular is a popular and well-known flying area. Protected by the surrounding four-thousand-meter peaks, there are almost always good flying conditions here. Flying takes place all year round and every season has its charm.
Paragliding in Spring
In order to rise up higher, thermals are needed, i.e. warm rising air. Due to the temperature differences in the various layers of air, the thermals are strongest in spring. If you have in mind to fly as long as possible and maybe even play with the idea of booking double flying time, then this is your season! Just wear a warm jacket and maybe even gloves – it could get quite chilly way up high. For those who are not comfortable with the altitude, don’t worry! We will adjust the flights according to your comfort.
Paragliding in Summer
Paragliding in Fall
As soon as the cows move back down to the valley in September, the autumn feeling sets in. The excitement of summer subsides, fewer tourists stroll through Interlaken and everything seems quieter. On our autumn flights you can admire the colorful leaves of the trees from close up and often enjoy fantastic visibility and snow-covered mountains. Since the temperature difference in the layers of air is no longer as pronounced as in spring and summer, the air rises less quickly. Thermals now become gentler and long flights less frequent. If you are still interested in a thermal flight, then discuss the possibilities with our office team.
Paragliding in Winter
You love winter and there is nothing more beautiful for you than a snow-covered landscape? Then this is the season for your tandem paragliding flight! We briefly trudge through the snow to the launch site (wear good shoes!) and then take off! All wrapped up in warm clothes, you overlook the winter wonderland below from your first-class seat. Turquoise-blue Lake Thun glistens in front of the white snowy mountains and everything seems almost a bit kitsch. Depending on weather conditions, we fly between 10 and 20 minutes before landing in Interlaken. Our recommendation afterwards: a warm, hot Swiss chocolate in the Restaurant Café Schuh right next to the landing field!
