The flight

The 20 minute Discovery flight is perfect for first-time flyers. It is an intense experience over beautiful mountain landscapes over Les Arcs and down into Bourg St Maurice in the valley. The pilot is comfortably seated behind the passenger in a harness-seat which attaches them both to the same wing. After a short running start the wing will be lifted over you head and take you up into the skies.

Useful information

What is a tandem paragliding flight?

Two people, the pilot and the passenger, fly under the same wing. The passenger is in front of the pilot, comfortably seated in a large harness-seat which securely attaches them to the pilot and the wing. The pilot controls the wing during the flight.

When should I book my paragliding flight?

We highly recommend booking as early as possible when you arrive for your holiday.
You should try and book the first possible time-slot during your stay in case the weather conditions do not allow us to fly so as to give us the best possible chance to reschedule for another day. The time-slots we will be able to offer depend on the exact weight of the participants (within a margin of 1-2kg) as the flight conditions change throughout the day. As a general rule, children and small adults fly in the morning when we can start at 25kg minimum and everyone else flies in the afternoon when we can go up to 100kg maximum. The conditions and the weight restrictions mean that, for example, most parents and children cannot fly at the same time!
Performance flights are only available in the afternoon.

I have vertigo or a fear of heights, which activities can I do?

You can do: rafting, hydro-speed swimming and paragliding (depending on the severity of the vertigo).
You should avoid: the tree-top adventure course and canyoning (due to waterfall jumps and abseiling).

Can I take photos or film my paragliding flight?

You cannot take your phone out during the flight to film as it would be very dangerous if it fell on someone. There is a photo + video option available for 30€ (2022 price) to be paid in cash directly to the pilot who will film you and take photos with their GoPro on a selfie-stick. After the flight they will give you the SD card and an adapter.
