Air sports in winter
Looking to try something new? Then a winter hot-air balloon flight, paragliding or snowkiting might be the right thing for you! Feel the clear cold air on your cheeks, see Lake Achensee from above, and get carried away by the wind.
A hot-air balloon ride is an exhilarating experience that can be highly addictive. Once you have discovered the thrill and joy of a flight, you will yearn to go on another. Because it is an exceptional adventure where you get to soak in stunning views that can only be enjoyed from high above. Views of winter landscapes lying under a blanket of snow, of snow-capped peaks strung together like white pearls, and of the tranquil waters of Lake Achensee.
If you are an Achensee fan with a thirst for adventure, try snowkiting. Achenkirch on the northern shore of Lake Achensee has a snowkiting area with perfect wind conditions. Snowkiting involves riding on a snowboard or on skis over snow-covered meadows while holding on to a specially designed kite, using the wind for propulsion.
Paragliding lets you see Lake Achensee and its impressive mountain scenery from a bird’s eye view. Launch forward, get your wing ready, and off you go. Paragliding in winter is unique experience where you take off and land in snow. Feel the cold winter air in your face while soaking in gorgeous views of the snow-covered landscape – these are moments to enjoy for a lifetime!
