Ski holidays always carry the risk of flying off the mountainside. But how about floating gently off in a paraglide? On a clear day in St. Johann, multicoloured canopies can be seen soaring above the snowy peaks. Mountain High offers tandem paragliding trips launching from 1,700 metres, giving panoramic views of St. Johann and the surrounding area. The experienced guides can either glide you down serenely or offer a more adrenaline-filled flight with acrobatic moves. It costs €129 ( mountain-high.at).
