Paragliding from Vogel

Vogel offers one of the most beautiful take-off points for paragliding in Slovenia. From Ukanc, we take the cable car to reach the upper station of the Vogel ski resort.

We then take a ride with a four-seater chairlift to Orlove glave, from where the take-off point is less than 100 metres to the east. This is the runway we recommend the most, and is also ideal in the winter time.

From the top of Orlove Glave there is another take-off point south-west above Žagarjev Graben, which is only recommended in very light winds or no wind at all.

In good conditions, we can fly on the northern slopes of the mountains above Bohinj, but the high altitude also makes panoramic flights and local paragliding interesting enough.
