Quote Testimonials yellowOh what a feeling! Glorious flight with Mountaingliders over the Lago and soaring above the Cimetta. It was our first tandem flight and we felt safe and well-guided by Thio and Michael. Thank you for the fantastic experience!

Testimonial Mountaingliders
Quote Testimonials greenDO IT! If you are in Ascona/Locarno and looking for a stunning, peaceful way to experience the view, go with Thio and his experienced team. My husband and I are open to new adventures, but not thrill seekers by any means. This experience would be good for children and adults alike. This is the closest experience to flying like a bird you will receive! And such a view with a great team that makes you feel comfortable and at ease.

Cardada - A mountain to discover

The best place to fly

The lovely view from Cimetta is absolutely unique, as it allows two extremes of our country to be seen: Switzerland’s lowest spot, the delta of the Maggia river between Ascona and Locarno, and the highest spot, Dufourspitze, situated on the Monte Rosa massif and which carves its way through the imposing Alpine chain to the west of the horizon.
