HIKE+FLY

Portrait

“Mankind was always dreaming about one thing: Conquering montains and fly above them.” - Daniel Kofler.
Hike & Fly has been around for a couple of decades now: Starting in the 1980's, paragliders started to conquer the mountains and find their very own launching spots. But in order to carry up the extremely heavy equipment (wings, parachutes, harnesses) they had to attend in an almost expedition-like manner. The technical development in recent years though allowed the ascent to be much more fun, since the weight of necessary gear has been reduced immensely. Daniel Kofler, paragliding-pilot since 1999, explains the magic of Hike & Fly and what motivated him to begin with paragliding in the first place.
