Great experience! - Both Freemind tour operators read our daughters perfectly - understanding that each had different needs. One daughter preferred to float and was offered the opportunity to direct the ride, and the other wanted to do tricks. It was great!

Beautiful views, great guides and a fun time! - My wife and son (11 years old) both did tandem flights this morning and had a great time. First off, communication was very strong from the moment we initiated a conversation to book and directions were easy to meet our guides. Our guides were personable, knowledgeable of flying and took both my wife and son on flights which they really enjoyed. They got beautiful views on a clear day and were in the air for about 40 minutes! I highly recommend this excursion in this location with this group who was professional, fun and friendly!

One of a kind experience - Chris, my paragliding expert made me feel comfortable and safe when it came to paragliding. He was super fun and an experienced paraglider, making me that much more comfortable running off the mountain.

Go for it despite being afraid! - I was TERRIFIED to do this. I’m so scared of heights but I had always heard amazing things about paragliding so I decided to do it despite my fear. The worst part was the anticipation leading up to it but as soon as you took off it was the most incredible thing I’ve ever done. It was so peaceful flying through the sky and the views were incredible!! The guides were all amazing and it was definitely the highlight of our Switzerland trip. I would recommend this to anyone and will definitely be doing it again next time I’m in Switzerland!!

Just.. Wow!!! - Quck review: 10/10 would recommend to everyone! Do it! You won't regret it! Feel safe from start to finish with amazing views!!! Extended review: So, it's mid-January and I decide to book the panoramic flight - which isn't the best idea because of conditions and the cold, even Yrs (I hope I wrote that correctly l) says so. but hey, don't ask, don't get. So I booked (online through their website) which was so easy! I paid online too, but you can pay them in cash if you prefer. It was really easy to catch the free shuttle bus to the pick up location (Brunni) where we took the Cable car to the top, as well as the ski lift. The views were breath taking, the sun was out and the sky was clear. The wind was ready!! Neither of us could believe it! Next thing I know, we are running as fast as we can (towards what looks like a cliff edge but is actually just a steep hill, and then we are flying! Now this is where it gets hard to put into words the experience, so I'll just leave it at this: Paragliding is now hands down my favourite activity, not only do you get to fly like a bird and experience amazing views, you get a feeling of being carefree! However, doing paragliding with Freeminds will have you feeling safe, secure and carefree from start to finish. I recommend this company to anyone who wants to have an amazing experience! Thank you so much Yrs for an amazing flight! I'll definitely be back!

Amazing Paragliding Adventure - We had the most amazing time paragliding in Engelberg! Guides were incredibly flexible suggesting a change in flight days due to weather and visibility. Guide were fun, and very well coordinated - amazing experience. Would recommend to anyone.
