Paragliding with Alan was a once in a lifetime experience. I was very nervous and he was very calming through the whole thing. He made me feel very safe and explained everything to make me feel more at ease. He even put up with my nervous/excited screamingly on take off. I would thoroughly recommend you to take a flight with Alan. It was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had and the views were amazing. You will never see the Swiss Alps in a better way. I will cherish my pictures and memories forever. Thank you Alan.

The flight with Alan today is simply amazing and fun! He is super friendly and professional. Everything is smooth and steady. He told me all about the glaciers as well as the mountains. HE IS THE BEST PILOT IVE EVER MET. In addition, the view is breathtaking up there and is more than words can tell.

Amazing experience! Alan starts by explaining step-by-step what's going to happen. You feel completely safe and comfortable. Besides having a lot of fun together with Alan, everything went perfect! I would really commend him if you want to go paragliding in Zermatt!

Paraglide jump made for the first time and what an experience that was! I thought it was pretty exciting but Alan is great. He tells you exactly what you must do and what will happen. He is very calm and puts you at ease. Along the way he asks you what you want and what you don't and gives you information about the area. We had a lot of fun. It was amazing!! I can definitely recommend Alan if you want to go paragliding.

I loved paragliding with Alan, he is such a fun guy! His long experience in Paragliding made me feel very safe. I even said yes to the "rollercoaster" as Alan calls it - and loved it!
The view of the Matterhorn and Zermatt during the flight is stunning. Great view, fun pilot, one of the best experiences I ever had.
If I ever get to chance to go back to Zermatt, I will go Paragliding with Alan again for sure!

The Matterhorn is in full view from all take offs and during the flight. Occasionally the clouds may block the view of the mountain. But your pilot tries his best to get the best view of the Matterhorn and its surrounding mountains.
