Lucien Caviezel is a professional paraglider and enthusiastic alpinist. His great passion is the combination of mountaineering and paragliding. Lucien obtained his paragliding licence at the age of 16, the earliest age at which a license could be obtained.
The Swiss athlete finds nothing more beautiful than being out in the mountains and flying. Flying with a paraglider is interesting on many levels, he tells us: "You have to learn the technical skills, understand the weather, make tactical decisions and deal with inherent risks in a calculated manner. Climbing and flying then combines the greatest aspects of mountain sports."
For the future, Lucien would like to see respect for the mountains maintained.
