What you'll do

We will take of from Mount Niederbauen for a Panoramaflight(10-20 minutes) from the takeoff close to the Restaurant Niederbauen.
If its possible we will try to flight over the peak of Niederbauen. From there you have an amazing view to Gotthard, the main reach of the Alps. We can choose other take offs like Engelberg or Biehlen. It always depending on the wind for this day. There are a lot of different landing and takeoff places around. This is the reason cause Swiss is one of the best countries for paragliding and "hike and fly" tours. We can take off and land almost anywhere if the landowner allows it. The basic requirement for the start is that the passenger is able to walk a few steps because we have to accelerate for the start in order to take off. The landing is relatively easy, as the pilot and passenger straighten up and take a step before touching the ground. After landing there is the possibility to have a look and purchase photos and videos (cost 30 franks extra) made during the flight by the pilot.
Other things to note
Paragliding is not a extreme sport in Swiss in the opinion of the insurance. The possibility to get hurtet is much smaller as wis skiing or driving a motorbike. There are more than 14000 aktive pilots in Swiss.

I am flying since 2011 paraglider and since 2015 a certified Tandempilot. I make around 400 flights each year and i know the area around our Airbnb apartment very well. I be living since 2008 after a long Trip to different places permanent in Swiss.
My place of birth is in Allgäu/Bavaria/ Germany and it is a similar region to Nidwalden where I'm living now. The idea to combine paragliding and Airbnb apartment hiring is working well cause i can give the people who stay on our place the possibility to choose the best day for flying.

Where you'll be

From the valley station our way leads with the cable car about 7 minutes up to the mountain guesthouse Niederbauen. This place has been designated as the best vantage point in 2013 and lies at 1600 metres above sea level. Right next to it is the launch site. The difference in altitude between the launch site and the landing site is 800 metres. The launch site is one of the best in the whole of Switzerland and is used by pilots and flight students all year round.

Rated 4.90 out of 5 from 83 reviews.

Großartiges Erlebnis! Florian war sehr sympathisch und hat uns noch einen super Tipp gegeben um den restlichen Tag am See zu verbringen. Absolut zu empfehlen.

This was an incredible experience in a beautiful place. There was an extra charge for the cable car ride to where we jumped that wasn't explained ahead of time. The pilots know what they are doing and are very confident.

Being a lover of adventures, it was indeed an experience one shouldn't miss. Totally totally loved it. Flo is amazing, he made this experience a combination of adventure and comfort. So if you want to experience paragliding in Switzerland, I would say, " Just go with the FLO" cause you wouldn't find any better pilot than him.... P.s can't just stop smiling post this amazing amazing experience.

I have done paragliding four times in different parts of the world. This was by far the best experience I’ve had with this activity. The host gave me plenty of information before and wanted to make sure the experience was personal for me. I felt like he really got to know me and wanted to know what I wanted from the experience and I walked away with a friend at the end! The actual experience was beautiful, exhilarating, and you could tell they truly have a passion for what they do. This isn’t just a company… He’s truly inviting people to experience an amazing passionate sport. Highly recommended! Oh and he took a lot of photos during the experience and awesome high-resolution videos and I had them within five minutes of landing on my phone!
