Davos – the perfect playground for Hike&Fly pilots

What could be more beautiful than flying from a peak you’ve climbed using your own strength?

For over 12 years, we’ve been infected with the Hike & Fly bug and have been able to fly from many beautiful summits with a paraglider (Kilimanjaro, Elbrus, Piz Palü, etc.). In the early years of paragliding, it was mainly alpinists who, after a strenuous ascent, looked for a quick descent method from the summit. Nowadays, many pilots undertake Hike & Fly tours.

Supported by the Red Bull X-Alps events, pilots now have access to an excellent pool of lightweight equipment. From ultra-light descent aids and single-skin paragliders to light Hike & Fly suitable cross-country flying gear, pilots have a wide selection.

Away from or with the support of the cable cars, Davos offers many touring opportunities of all difficulty levels throughout the year. We are already looking forward to the X-Alps 2019 with Davos as a turning point!

We regularly offer Hike & Fly tours for certified pilots and students ready for examination. In a safe environment with a flight instructor and mountain guide, you can realize your summit dreams here. We also offer tandem Hike & Fly experiences.
