Fly a paraglider
A bird's eye view of the Simmental
Lift off and enjoy the beautiful Lenk valley from above. You will be amazed at the number of Simmental cows you can see and where the tracks have all been left from ski touring in winter.
Everyone dreams of being able to fly – experienced pilots will make this wish come true for you. The view of the breathtaking landscape will make it an experience you will never forget. Depending on the time of day, wind, and weather conditions, you and your pilot will start on the Metschstand, Mülkerblatte (Betelberg), from Alp Seewlen (Schatthorn) or from Gibel above Matten.
