Not at all a high-wire act: at the Ischgl SKYFLY, adrenaline rushes are part of the fun! Along a two kilometres-long steel rope, you’ll fly through Ischgl’s Kitzloch ravine reaching up to 85 kilometres per hour! In winter, you’ll have an amazing view of the snow-covered slopes down in the valley during your zipline flight. Skis and snowboards can be strapped to your back for the duration of the flight.
If you’re looking for an adrenaline rush, you’ll love the Ischgl SKYFLY! So, you’d better grab a courageous companion (because two people can fly next to each other) and off you go!
