Airborne Sports in the Three Valleys, France

Paragliding

This is undoubtedly the best way to take in the spectacular views over the Three Valleys area of France. Paragliding schools will offer you everything from a one off experience to courses for those interested in solo flights. If you don’t fancy having a go for yourself, it is still breathtaking watching others and the competitions are spectacular.

Paragliding (also called parapenting) is a very popular activity in the Alps and involves flying a wing in the thermals high above the valley floor below. Flights are accompanied by an instructor who will give you a sedate flight with wonderful views of the valley floor below. If you prefer a more exhilarating flight, your instructor can demonstrate stalls and basic acrobatics. The flights start up in the mountains from a take off point, to which you are driven in a 4×4 vehicle. Flights can last more than 15-20 minutes and the sensation is wonderful!
