Gliding and paragliding – naturally in Goms, the mountain village

I raise you silently into the air. I let you float above the peaks. I surround you. I turn you into a bird. The sun is my mother. The earth is my father. Warmth is my nature. Use me. I am your upwind.

The mountain village Goms and the surrounding scene are a veritable paradise for gliders and paragliders. Roughly 300 sunny days a year render Goms one of the sunniest places in the Alps. The warm rays of sunlight and the vast hillsides provide powerful upwind and thus many hours for gliding.

GLIDING AND PARAGLIDING

The airfield Münster consists of 800 metres of paved runway and provides an ideal setting for gliders. In a matter of minutes, the gliders reach the adequate height with the help of tow-planes in order to make use of the favourable thermal conditions.

You will find hardly any better location for paragliding in Europe than the Eggishorn area in Fiesch and Bellwald. European and world championships in paragliding have been held here. Cable cars and chairlifts will transport you to the best areas from where pilots can start and stay in the air for up to 12 hours.

TANDEM FLIGHTS

Tandem flights starting from Münster allow interested passengers to get an impressive experience and views of the glaciers (Fiescher, Aletsch and Rhone Glaciers), valleys (Binn and Bedretto Valleys) and passes (Grimsel, Furka, Nufenen). A team of experienced pilots from the participating gliding groups offers tandem flights on behalf of the Münster Airfield Association. Tandem flights are possible after 4p.m and should be reserved by 10 a.m. at Flugplatz Münster.

Tandem flights are offered in the Fiesch area as well. It is a unique experience to float over the breathtaking landscape with nothing but air below your feet and the sky above your head.
