Above the clouds…paragliding in Grossarl – Dorfgastein is a one-of-a-kind experience!
We are constantly getting requests from our guests for tandem paragliding tours. Until now, all of our guests who have done it have had an excellent time.
Due to the fact that its difficult to describe something that one has never experienced, I signed myself up for a tandem paragliding tour a few weeks ago.
So, I made my way to Dorfgastein. The starting point was the Fulseck, which can be reached with the Fulseck cable car in just a few minutes. I began to feel a bit nervous. My pilot, Klaus, quickly laid out the canopy. He strapped on my seating apparatus and my helmet and it was already time to go. I was given the instructions to start running and never stop running…”don’t stop running until you’re really in the air”. That was it; I didn’t need to do anything else.
We had a breathtaking view once in the air. One should not be prone to dizziness when doing this – you are sometimes as much as 200m over ground. It was an amazing feeling…floating quietly far above the ground. I really felt as though I was flying freely through the air – not surrounded by the usual metal and loud motors of an airplane.
