    Game Watching Every Tuesday & Thursday

    Wild animals, particularly the native red deer, are shy forest dwellers and you don’t very often catch sight of them in the wild.

    However, during the hard winter months when food becomes scarce, deer venture very close to populated areas and almost forget they are afraid of people. This means you can watch majestic deer feeding at dusk at close range. Experience this unusual natural spectacle from the shelter of a hide. Every Tuesday and Thursday during the winter season we offer guided hikes to watch the wildlife. Further information and reservations at Lech Zürs Information.

    Tandem paragliding in winter

    Leave the earth behind and feel liberated as soon as you take off, with no constraints and no engine noise, floating feely, only joined to the wing by a couple of cords, feeling the strength of the air currents amid our beautiful countryside. Forget everyday life and enjoy being totally on your own. This feeling is never stronger than when you are flying and you can experience it here by trying tandem paragliding. As well as sensational paragliding flights, we also offer spectacular thermal flights and fascinating panoramic flights.  Also suitable for groups. See you in the sky!
