The launch site in Hochoetz towers around 1300 meters above the valley floor. It is one of several official paragliding starting points in Ötztal that are very easy to reach. Both from Oetz and Sölden the ascent is easy by mountain lifts and after a short walk the tandem paraglider is ready to go. It is quite possible that you feel a little queasy if you have never flown before. However, the experienced pilots of the Ötztal Flying Schools skillfully dispel any last doubts and questions. Once you have started running up and taking off gently, you can relax in the comfortable flying chair and let the 360-degree panorama high above Ötztal inspire you.
Special tip: Even if most passengers hope for a bright blue sky, don't be sad if it is cloudy on your tandem flight – quite often it is particularly good flying weather.
