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!
