If you want your first paragliding flight to be an unforgettable experience, look no further. Reaching 2,000 metres above sea level, Planpraz—our departure point—offers a breathtaking panoramic view over the Chamonix valley and has a fine take-off area for paragliding. Sensations of freedom and adventure guaranteed!

Tour programme
- Meeting and Preparation:
Your adventure starts in the heart of Chamonix, at our paragliding school. From there, we will board our shuttle towards the gondola lift and go up to Planpraz. If the lifts are closed, we will take off from Plan de l'Aiguille. Don’t forget to bring some cash to pay for the lift (15 € from Planpraz, 18 € from Plan de l'Aiguille).
- Start and Flight:
Once at Planpraz, the pilot will teach you the basics of tandem paragliding and equip you for the flight (harness and helmet). Then, you’re ready for the take-off: 3, 2, 1… You’re already in the Haute-Savoie sky enjoying the panoramic view! The landing area is 50m away from the school so we will be back where we started.

Once the booking is accepted, please confirm the schedule with the school and inform them of your weight.
