First Glider

Current status:

Flying with a bird of prey can be exhilarating. Especially when an eagle called First Glider takes flight. His four "passengers" float through the mountain landscape and enjoy a panoramic view at high speeds: To begin with, the First Glider is pulled backwards from Schreckfeld towards First at 72 km/h. It is on the way back that the eagle really takes off. He and his passengers glide the 800-metre-long flight route at up to 83 km/h.

Minimum age: 10 years
Minimum height: 130 cm
Body weight: max. 125 kg

Important information:
We look forward to welcoming you soon on Grindelwald-First. The adventure activities are very popular. In case of high guest volume or bad weather, there is no guarantee that the desired adventure activity will be possible. However, the ticket can be used to do an alternative adventure activity, provided it is not fully booked. We recommend arriving early in the morning at the start of operations and using the facilities immediately.
