Eigertour takes place over four days in July in Grindelwald in the heart of the Swiss Alps. The unsupported hike-and-fly race requires the competitors to fly from mountain hut to mountain hut, top landing at each one to taking a selfie, possibly wolfing down a coffee and cake, before launching and racing by foot and by sky to the next one.
Eigertour offers two courses, a challenge race and a pro race, with the objective that 80% of pilots should reach goal in each. Selection for either is not automatic, however: pilots in both races have to demonstrate high alpine take off and landing experience.
Race creator and X-Alps and Vercofly veteran Michael Witschi combined the best elements of both races in the area where he learned to fly, the bernese Alps. «Having to land, you get a whole different experience of the Alps switching between bird and man.» he says. «All these beautiful huts in Switzerland: they provide shelter, food, toilet and even safety if needed. At the end you don’t need a supporter, which makes the freedom even bigger compared to the X-Alps and of course also cheaper and easier to plan.»
