Paragliding in Flims Laax Falera

High above Flims Laax Falera you can enjoy a view far over the Signina mountain range and far into the Engadin. Due to the optimal flying conditions, which are caused by the foehn, paragliders are welcome in the destination Flims Laax Falera in summer as well as in winter.

What you should pay attention to

Video and photo drones are often flown in the Snowpark LAAX. We ask you to avoid dangerous approaches to each other.

The landing sites in Larnags, Flims-Dorf, Falera or Plaun are often enclosed with pasture fences. Because of this, double caution is requested when loading.

On days with a tendency towards a foehn, there is more frequent gflying in Flims Laax. This is quite acceptable as long as it is only felt as a constant south wind. Attention: Do not fly to the east (Reichenau or Chur) and not to the west (Brigels, Disentis), as dangerous and strong Föhn turbulences are to be expected.

Please pay attention to the game reserves in the destination during your flight. All protected areas are shown on the map.

Wildlife protection area 1: Flimserstein: At least 300 m horizontal and vertical distance.

Wildlife protection area 2: Nagens: Below 1900 m AMSL at least 300 m vertical distance

Wildlife protection area 3: Alp da Schnaus and Alp Muota: 300 m vertical distance When flying over from Crap Sogn Gion to the west min. 2400 m AMSL
