Paragliding at sunrise attracts both adventurous outdoor vacationers as well as local South Tyroleans. By rising early, we are able to catch the awakening of nature in the mountains. The Ifinger Tandemclub Team promise you an unforgettable adventure.
The trajectory of the sun and time of the year determines our departure time. Dawn might come earlier, or a little later. We will gladly pick up guests or arrange a meeting point where we can fetch you to get to the Kuhleitenhütte Refuge (2,400 m) near the Merano 2000 ski area. We arrive at the take-off point in our vehicle, but some guests might prefer to negotiate the final stretch on foot.
Breakfast and Flight
After a hearty breakfast, we await the arrival of dawn on the refuge terrace: the first rays of sunrise announcing the start of our adventure. We then take off on our paraglider, flying above the magnificent Passeiertal Valley for between 30 – 40 mins, at an altitude of 2,050 m. The landing is near the Torgglerhof Hotel in Salthaus/Saltusio, or on the Quellenhof Golf Course.
Photos and Videos
Our experienced pilots will shoot spectacular footage (photos and videos) throughout the tandem flight, including the prelude at sunrise and during the actual flight. You can collect these at the valley station after the end of your flight. Prices as above.
For those Accompanying Tandem Passengers
Family and friends accompanying passengers, who prefer not to fly, but who nevertheless wish to enjoy the sunrise and partake in the breakfast buffet, can join us for a small fee. From the terrace, you can watch your friends or loved ones take to the air with the paraglider and be there to meet them when they land.
