The main takeoffs are at Fiescheralp, served by a large cable car which runs every half hour during the flying season, more frequently when it’s busy. If the cabin is filling up, the staff will usually insist that paraglider rucksacks are piled on top of each other, so it’s a bad idea to place fragile objects inside unless they are well protected! Hang gliders can easily be taken in the cabin, at an extra charge of SFr 10.

There are also launch sites at Riederalp and Bellwald, but these are less easy to reach from the village.
