Paragliding and tandem flying on the Gerlitzen Alpe

The Gerlitzen Alpe with the Kanzelbahn cable car, open all year round, is a perfect mountain for more than hiking and culinary enjoyment. If you would like to take off into the air, this is a perfect spot for paragliding whether as a beginner, more experienced or a complete novice. Having enjoyed the spectacular views over Region Villach – Faaker See – Ossiacher See you can glide back down into the valley.

The experience of paragliding in the Region Villach - Faaker See - Ossiacher See is breath-taking. At any time of the year, provided weather conditions are relatively stable, you can enjoy seeing the region and the beautiful views over Lake Ossiach from this new perspective. You can experience these bird’s eye perspectives alone or during a tandem flight – in any case, the adrenaline kick of this adventure is worth it!

In good hands on land and in the air
If you have always wanted to have a go at paragliding, our tandem and paragliding school is the perfect place for experiencing what it is like. You don’t even have to be athletic – after a short run you take off and then can relax in a sitting position for approximately 30 minutes and enjoy the view. Whether young or old, anyone who dares, is welcome to have a go. Tandem flights are possible from age 5 (depending on weight). The equipment is naturally included in the price.
