Eagles flying in the mountains? What more could a Tolkien fan want? Although the organizers knew nothing of Tolkien, I made the eagle glider flight my long-dreamed-of Gwaihir flight. Sindarin: Wind Lord was one of the lords of the eagles of the Misty Mountains. And then to snoop a bit in the Silmarillion in this beautiful landscape ... what more could you want? Yes, maybe it would be great if you could make a video or at least a photo of your own flight and if it went up and down twice ...

Quick and easy to book and then walked straight in, scanned our tickets and straight on to a gondola. Very easy and stress free 😃 highly recommend. Great experience too! Went to the top of first - what a place and what a view!

If you're an adventure-seeker at heart and don't mind dizzying heights, the First Cliff Walk summit trail might be just the thing for you. How do you get there, you ask? This cable car takes you to the top of Mt. First, showing you the stunning landscapes of Bernese Oberland on your way up.

"First "is a popular hiking area and a minor summit, named for being the starting point for many trails. Once at the summit, challenge yourself to First Cliff Walk - a rope trail with a 40-meter suspension bridge. You'll be surrounded by the fantastic views of the Alps, Mt. First's cliffside, and Switzerland's towering mountains.

When you've had enough and want to head back home, make a simple ticket upgrade and take the cable car back to your starting point with delicious mountain views of Switzerland enveloping you.
