The fourth edition of the Eigertour ist completely sold out! Thank you!
We are looking forward to this years race in the unique scenery around the Eiger.
Stay informed and follow @eigertour on social media!
We’re almost sold out for the upcoming Eigertour ED4! Only ten days after registration opening most of the tickets are sold. Thank you all for your support! There are a few last spots left in the four categories.
For the registration pilots need to have a link to a video showing their landing skills, be it on a narrow fiel, upslope landing or toplanding – we’re looking foward to see many interesting videos.
Rumour goes, that the ProRace will do a Aletschgletscher round – a completely new route around the biggest Ice of central Europe.
The Academy is split into two – the ones that are aiming to become Challenge athletes in the future, and those wanting to experience Eigertour in a stress-free athmosphere.
You can now download to race rules as pdf on the main page of www.eigertour.rocks.

In a Month time we will be ready to race in Grindelwald. Want to know how Chrigel prepares for his first Hike&Fly Race of the season? This outstanding athlete has always been very accessible to all of us and is willing to share his knowledge with you! thanks Chrigel. And hey…. don’t think you can handle this amount of training if you haven’t been near it for now – it will destroy you rather than help. Chrigel also shares his packing list: minimal but everything needed is in it: check it out!
Dear Eigertour Fans, it’s time for an update on our next adventure race.
First of all: We have the intention to make Edition.3 of the Eigertour happen as planned.
So far, we have the good news, that the mountain hut’s are already allowed to reopen if they comply with the rules set by our government (you will probably need to bring your own sleeping bag – so start thinking about which one to take and how to fit it into your harness). Paragliding training up in groups up to 5 people is also permitted whilst keeping always the 2m distance. On May 27th, we will be informed about the next reopening steps concerning sport events. There is a good chance that the Eigertour might be held.
The next update for you will be at the beginning of June 2020. So keep training as much as you can and please contribute by strictly following the social distancing rules, which should be easy to fulfill for a hike&fly athlete.
Regards from the Eigertour Crew
100 Pilots from 22 Nations have been selected to participate at the third Edition of the Eigertour. A Waiting list will be created and those who fail to buy their ticket will release their places to further applicants.
Happy Christmas holiday to all Eigertour Fans.
For Edition.3 we have currently 83 registered pilots from 22 different countries – it appears the recommendations amongst hike&fly enthusiasts spreads across the globe.Looking forward to a nice 2020 race – we will have more huts/turnpoints to make the race even more rewarding.
