Fly ZermattWhile Zermatt’s charming town center and surrounding Alpine mountains are beautiful from the ground, they’re most impressive when viewed from above—particularly while attached to a sail, gliding through the sky. This area is teaming with experienced paragliding companies but Fly Zermatt leads the way with tandem flights that soar over glaciers, ice crevasses, and frozen waterfalls, all in the midst of the iconic Matterhorn. In the spring and summer, you can even take off from the Gornergrat ridge and fly over its majestic glacier. Fly Zermatt insists that no experience is necessary; you simply need a willingness to take a running jump off a cliff.
