"Hang Glide!" Hang Gliding Tip by lthornton11

Hang Gliding, Interlaken: 7 reviews and 4 photos

To this day, this is one of the best things I've ever done! I get nervous at heights, too, so this was quite a step for me!

When I made the decision to hang glide, you book a trip with a local company (they are everywhere in Interlaken). They will take you and the gear up a hill where you take off. You go in tandem with an experienced hang-glider.

The most nerveracking part is having the wings strapped to you and running down the hill to catch the wind, and then taking off like an airplane.

I thought my stomach was going to lose it for a little while, but that passed and I was able to really enjoy the experience. It is the most beautiful view in the world! If you're really adventurous, your tandem partner may do some acrobatics.

If you're ever going to hang-glide in your life, do it in the Swiss Alps! There is even a camera mounted to the wing so you can get a photo of yourself in the air.

It's a little pricey (around $190), but worth every penny.
