Hang Gliding & Paragliding

Would you also like to fly over roofs, tree tops and meadows? The Falken Club Ahrntal, the largest hang gliding club in South Tyrol, was founded in the 70s and was therefore one of the first flying clubs in Italy and Europe. Anyone who would like to admire South Tyrol’s fascinating natural landscape from a new perspective can do so during a scenic tandem flight.

Aviation is a tradition on the Plan de Corones/Kronplatz as well. View Val Pusteria/Pustertal from a bird’s eye perspective and let your gaze wander from the Dolomites to the Alpine main ridge while paragliding. All you have to do is run a few metres during take-off and landing, your tandem pilot professionally takes care of the rest.
