A paragliding flight is an unforgettable and incredible experience. We're Mountaingliders, a selection of local pilots committed to provide the care and professionalism you deserve. Ascona-Locarno is the most practical and suitable place for paragliding flights in Ticino. It's probably because of the perfect exposition of its slopes to the sun, where nice thermal lifts start directly after the take-off in Cimetta. But also because of the large altitude span of almost 1500m from top to down, allowing an immense and spectacular glide over the city and along the water of the Lake Maggiore and, finally, do you mind touching the ground on the lowest point in Switzerland? Discover the unique feeling of landing on a tandem paraglider at the Delta of the Maggia river, directly at the sandy beach in Locarno, it's just amazing! Don't forget to take your swimsuit with you for a refreshing plunge into its clear water. More than 10 years of experience. Our promise: total satisfaction guarantee!
