We went up the rofan bergbahn spontaneously to see the view. We then saw the airofan and we HAD to go on it. Totally worth it. Really fun, fabulous view, and not a bad price! Would do it again!

If you would like to hike around Rofan Mountain, it is worthwhile, but just for this, It is quite expensive. Plus: lines are very long and it ends really fast

When look upwards from the base station of the airrofan, it looks a bit scary, but as you are pulled up the mountain, you find out it is not as frightening as it look like. Than it stops, and a second later you start "flying" down the cable. It is fun, but before you start enjoying yourself, it ends. So,... More

Looked a lot more frightening than it was. Bought the 2 teens 3 "flights" each. They were bored the second and third run but was a great experience. The overall experience is great! Riding the cable car up to the summit, watching the para gliders take off and gently float away. Was a great time

You get strapped into a Serious safety harness, then you are off. Getting pulled up backwards, suddenly gets the heart racing. The flight down is fun, but over to quickly. We only did 1 flight and I think that is enough. Definitely worth a go

Take the Rofan Cable Car and you will be amazed when you reach the top at the variety of walks, views,flora and fauna, not to mention the skyrider for those looking for an adrenalin rush. Personally we found the natural attraction of the place on a warm sunny day in June quite exhilarating.

I have done it with my 10 years old grandson, and I am not sure who enjoyed it more, grandpa or the child.....

Went up in the cable car which was an exhilerating experience allowing great views of the area including my daughter's home.Lots of walks to be done and we decided to take the track back down to Maurach. First long walk I had done in ages and thoroughly enjoyed it including the coffee stop at an alm on the way down.... More

Was a short ride but the kids loved it. I thought it was fairly reasonable compared to other resort area activities like this. I was too scared to do it, but the kids would have gone again but fog rolled in.

This is a nice glider flight experience starting from 2000m altitude and going down to about 1800 meters. It is safe and makes fun! But it is very short (approximately only 10..20 seconds flight time downward). It speeds up to 80km/h.
