Paragliding in Mayrhofen in winter


Experience the feeling of freedom and the spectacular views on a tandem flight from Mount Penken to Mayrhofen in Zillertal. Mayrhofen is appreciated by paragliders for its outstanding thermals. Take off to the skies and enjoy the amazing feeling of flying!

Mount Penken offers two paragliding launch sites: 

  • Launch site east – right at the Kombibahn mountain station

  • Launch site south – near the Knorren mountain station

If the weather is not quite up to flying, pilots with their equipment can use the gondolas to travel back down to the valley for free.
