Speed Flying in Nods, Bern-Mittelland, Switzerland
Bern is an attraction to tourists more in a cultural than a political way. There are many sports that are being practiced in Bern and around the area. Particularly one air sport which is kind of rare but pretty awesome that is being performed near Bern in Nord is Speed Flying.
If you are looking for something special, a new kick or even just a variation of it, then speed flying is what you are looking for. Speed Flying is a combination of paragliding, skiing and parachuting. The difference is that you will cover a bigger distance with a greater speed and you will not jump off an aircraft.
With the little speedsters, you will be lifted a few meters and then ride back on your skis. It is a smooth transition from free riding to fly. But beware!!! If you even try it on, you will be instantly hooked. Speed flying requires a license since 2008. This requires learning and passing the paragliding training.
It is highly recommended that you will wear protective equipment because it is a very dangerous sport. It is a magnificent and very unique sport that you have to try!
