The “Rofan” mountains are a demanding paragliding site as to the atmospheric conditions, providing, however, the opportunity for long distance flights. Due to the proximity to the lake, the area is an excellent testing terrain for manufacturers of paragliding products and for safety training. Beware of the upslope winds in the landing area.
