Paragliding in Åre, Jämtland, Sweden
The existence of Åreskutan mountain at 1420 m/4658 ft has given birth to Åre Ski Area, the most popular skiing resort in the whole Scandinavia, which in 2008 apparently won the award of the world’s best ski resort. But except of a great variety of skiing sports to practice, Åre happens to be a perfect place for paragliding.
Once you reach the top of Åreskutan by cable car, you will find the paragliding center. Paragliding offers you the mystical opportunity to explore the beauty of the area as if you were a bird. You can choose between a tandem-jump or motor paragliding and fly from the top of the mountain, pass above the village and land to the frozen lake with the air on your side! A normal flight lasts about 15 minutes and all you have to do is to get dressed appropriately for winter and the rest leave it to the experienced instructor.
How to Get to Destination
