Tandem Flights in Zermatt
A flight in Zermatt’s amazing alpine landscape is something that everyone (regardless of age) should try at least once!
Winter flights are usually flown from the top of Rothorn (sometimes Klein Matterhorn is also possible, but the weather must be perfect).
Summer flights are from Rothorn, Blauherd, Riffelberg and Klein Matterhorn.
The landing area is just behind the Zermatt train station, on top of the last gallery. Walk up past the Denner super-market, cross the railway tracks and walk up a short concrete ramp to where you will see a wind sock.
