A-MA-ZING!!! Honestly the best experience I’ve ever had. Definitely worth the money and have no regrets booking it. Coming from the UK, staying in Geneva and having to travel into Interlarken we didn’t know what to expect, but we were welcomed by a group of helpful staff that helped us get geared up and ready for the day ahead. The meeting point is clearly displayed outside the store so you should have no problem identifying it. Clothing is very easy to rent and they also provide lockers to store bags while you go up to the mountains. We were taught by Kim who was soooo warm, welcoming and kind. He took his time teaching us, didn’t rush us and allowed us to get comfortable and gain enough confidence to continue snowboarding throughout the whole session. The staff members attitude towards you can have a big impact on the experience and Kim made sure we had a great and unforgettable time so once again THANK YOU KIM! I would 100% recommend these sessions, such a great experience.

Worth it!! Skywings Paragliding have professional and experienced pilots (really grateful to my tandem pilot Jonas!). It was truly an amazing experience!
