Helicopter flights & paragliding
Fly high above Chamonix on a tandem parapente (paragliding) experience. Flights are available all year with the exception of November, and take off is usually from either the Plan d’Aiguille (half way on the Aiguille du Midi cable car) or the mid station at Brévent (Planpraz).
Flights typically take place in the morning when the conditions are best and there are fewer clouds, so you get to enjoy the best views of the Mont Blanc massif. Feel what it is like to fly like a bird. Contact us now to check availability and how to book. Gift vouchers are also available.

Heli-skiing isn’t actually permitted anywhere in France, however thanks to Chamonix’s close proximity to Italy and Switzerland you can hop across the border with a Chamonix based adventure company and experience the thrill of skiing in the backcountry. The closest place to heli-ski is the Val Veny, just on the other side of the Mont Blanc Tunnel. Contact us to find out more and how to book.
The Chamonix Valley is pretty dramatic when you’re walking around the streets or on the trails, but seen from the air, it’s even more spectacular. Paragliding and helicopter flights are available to do year round (weather permitting) whilst heli-skiing is only available in winter and in neighbouring Italy or Switzerland since it’s not permitted in France.
