Paragliding and Helicopter Flights


Invented in the Chamonix area in 1974, paragliding has grown rapidly since then. Discover why big thermals, eagles, glaciers and high peaks make the valley one of the best flying areas in the world. 

Tandem flights can start from either Aiguille du Midi, Les Grand Montets or Planpraz (Brévent area).  You spend between 20 and 40 minutes in the air, gliding several kilometres before landing in the Valley, close to Chamonix town. Prices start at 100 euros.

Experience a host of different feelings: the ultimate peaceful sight-seeing ride, an adrenaline rush, a taste of flying, a surprise gift, or all of those things... don't forget your camera!
