They say ”Jobs fill your pockets, Adventures fill your soul!”
After skydiving in New Zealand I thought that must be the craziest thing I’ve ever done but no, I landed up Paragliding. Last year whenÂ I was in Switzerland on a family vacation my brother and husband bullied me into accompanying them to jump off a mountain.Â At first the idea sounded crazy but then I didn’t want to miss this chance and regret it all my life. I don’t think there’s a better place in the world to paraglide. The mystical beauty of Interlaken is just perfect to charm you while you’re floating above the city, a thought that actually tempted me to do this.
We opted for a company called Twin Paragliding which we booked through our hotel concierge. Their car came to pick us up and took us to the office where we changed our shoes, got jackets and helmets and left our valuables. We were then driven up to a mountain by a team of 3 professional gliders and each of us was assigned one.Â My glider was simply the best she made me feel so comfortable and explained the procedure so well.Â So once you reach on top of the mountain there are little runways made from where you can jump off. Trust me it wasn’t so difficult or scary as it looks. Before I could even realize I was floating over the city.
It was one of the best experiences of my life! I prefer this over skydiving because here you can actually relax and enjoy the view and the thrill of gliding off a mountain is inexplicable. Well if it scares you it might be a good thing to try. I highly recommend you to do this in Interlaken. Just remember everything you’ve wanted is on the other side of fear!

Very recently I did paragliding and i loved it. I have done it a couple of times and it just awesome everytime. I really want to explore new Zealand.

Wow, so cool! I think having a good glider really is important to make you comfortable. I’m very jealous of this experience. ^^
Haha you must try it once!
Loved the video! That place looks so beautiful.
Wow, what an amazing view! I would be totally terrified though!
Trust me it wasn’t as scary as it looks 🙂
What amazing, bird-eyes views of the city and countryside! Looks like a great time!!
Isn’t it simply beautiful?!
Awesome pics! This looked like so much fun. I’m afraid of heights so I don’t know how well this would work out for me!
Trust me it’s so amazing, worth a try!
This was our first paragliding experience! It was such an awesome feeling and the views are stunning! So glad you enjoyed it as much as we did and your pictures are beautiful!
Thank you so much! You must try it someday..
That looks to be fun. A good video of the whole event. Would love to do it some day. The view of the city is amazing from the top.
It was beautiful!
That paragliding looks like so much fun. It seems like it’s a bit scary but a lot more relaxed than sky diving and bungee jumping. I like the selfie stick. I guess the selfie stick is strapped on so you don’t drop it?
Oh yes its much more relaxed as compared to sky diving. I preferred this more.
Yes of course the stick is strapped to the sack 🙂
I did paragliding in Florida last year but I enjoyed skydiving most as there is an ultimate adrenaline rush! Looks like you had so much fun doing it!
Your video is really cool and seems you had actually lived the moment. Your pictures and the views from the top are amazing. I am too gonna try it soon.
That must be an amazing, but scary experience! I wouldnt dare it haha! But your photos look absolutely amazing, I might consider doing it myself one day 😉
Thank you so much! Trust me it wasn’t as scary as it looks.. You must try it someday..
Wow, such a fun adventure! I find it a bit scary at first, but it is definitely something worth trying and worth having as a memory! Sending positive vibes your way!
Oh wow! What an amazing experience. Switzerland is on my travel bucket list and so is paragliding. Now Iâ€™m so pumped to become more adventurous. Such an amazing blog post.
Wow! Absolutely stunning images and I can see how it would be an amazing experience. But I have a severe fear of heights and I reckon I’d be frozen with fear! LOL! So in the meantime I shall live vicariously through you!
Wow! That looks like an incredible experience, you must be soooo happy you didn’t chicken out! Loving all those selfies, what a ride, what a ride!!
Awesome. Must have been an incredible experience.
Amazing photos! There’s quite a bit of paragliding where I live in the Canary Islands and I’ve been dying to check it out… this might just be the inspiration I needed!
