Tandem flight

our client’s no. 1 choice

Ascona-Locarno is the most practical and suitable place for paragliding flights in Ticino. It’s probably because of the perfect exposure of its mountains to the sun, where nice thermal lifts start directly after the take-off in Cimetta. But also because of the large altitude span of almost 1500m from top to bottom, allowing an immense and spectacular glide over the city and along the water of Lake Maggiore and, finally, do you mind touching the ground on the lowest point in Switzerland? Discover the unique feeling of landing with a tandem paraglider at the Delta of the Maggia river, directly at the sandy beach in Locarno, it’s just amazing! Don’t forget to take your swimsuit with you for a refreshing plunge into the clear water.

We suggest starting with our tandem flight from Cimetta (1640m) and landing at the Delta (193m) in Locarno. This is our client’s number one choice and the most appropriate for first time paragliders.

* In June and July – Take advantage of the special late afternoon flights from Cimetta!
We take the cable car at about 19:00, hike from Cardada to Cimetta (45min, 300m up) and takeoff at 20:00 for a wonderful flight in the evening sky, simply beautiful! The price for this special “hike & fly” package is CHF 220.-/pers. + CHF 20.-/pers. for the cable car run.

Discounts

affordable for everyone…

As more and more families go for paragliding tandem flights together, we’re really proud to be the first and only company to give discounts to the younger generation: children pay CHF 10.- times the age! For example: daddy and his 4 year old son would pay CHF 180+40 for a paragliding tandem flight. The deal is that at least one paying adult is accompanying each lucky child.

Look forward to receiving the mountainglidersCARD from your pilot. This card gives you a discount on the transportation costs for a future flight. If you don’t use it, feel free to pass it on.

With our mountainglidersCARD you get also 15% discount on burgers, coffee, ice creams and much more at the NRG Food Truck right next to our meeting point. It’s just a 100m walk away.

The Ascona-Locarno Welcome Card is available to all overnight visitors staying in a holiday home or apartment in our beautiful region (from February through December). Ask the staff at the Ascona-Locarno information desk for the special discount card.
