Paragliding flight over the Ötztal Alps
Paragliders in Ötztal can expect top flight conditions and outstanding perspectives. On clear days, the striking Zugspitze summit towers on the northern horizon. In the south, majestic Wildspitze peak at 3768 meters catches the eye of all mountain fans - it is the highest mountain in North Tirol and in the Ötztal Alps. A characteristic feature is also the high altitude leading up to 3000 meters and beyond. However, the airspace must be checked precisely before you set out. Pilots flying over 3300 meters should be well informed about the international aviation laws.
Excellent thermal currents in the entire valley can be quite challenging on some days due to the upper winds and valley winds. So inform yourself about the local conditions before you start a flight!
