130km/h and not lacking any fun: Flying Fox XXL in Leogang

Flying Fox in Leogang

Pure Adrenaline – the largest and fastest zip line in the world

Do one thing that scares you everyday

A few days ago I travelled to Leogang with exactly those words in mind. I was anxious and happy like a child and didn’t want to wait any longer for the Flying Fox in Leogang (= zip line) to happen.

I’m always looking forward to travelling to this part of Austria, because we lived just a few kilometers away and I learned how to ski here.

This weekend wasn’t about skiing but more about other activities such as the flying fox on Mount Asitz.

Adrenaline to go, please!

Check in at  the valley station of the Asitz cable car. You’ll be weighted and be given a voucher and a ticket for the cable car. The Flying Fox starts at the midstation of the cable car, where you’ll hop off and a few steps away you’ll find a little wooden cabin.

Now get ready for your flight by getting in a harness and putting on a helmet.

After a short introduction and some explanations the time has come. A few more steps and I finally see it: the flying fox! Ugh, that is longer than I had expected: the zip line is 1.6 kilometers long and therefore the longest in the world – and the fastest too!

I am ready! Attached to the zip line and hanging on my back – the countdown begins:





1…. woooooooooooooosssshhhh! And off I go flying over the valley!

The feeling of flying over the mountain and the trees is truly incredible! I can’t stop smiling and with my arms wide open I fly over the world. I feel like a young eagle, nose-diving for prey. Controlled, focussed and hungry. Not hungry for mice but hungry for more. And more will come after the flight – some local specialties!

Grüß dich, I'm Viki!

At Chronic Wanderlust, I write about my two great passions: travelling and diving – and have been doing so since 2013.

I usually spend a solid majority of the year travelling to experience extraordinary underwater adventures, taking road trips through countries I don’t know (yet) or exploring my home country of Austria.

As a certified divemaster, passionate underwater & travel photographer, road trip enthusiast and individual traveller, I collect unique moments all over the world.

I don’t believe that severe cases of wanderlust – aka chronic wanderlust – can be cured, only treated. On this blog, I want to show you how this can best be realised.

Curious to get to know me better?
