Alternatively the adventurers among you have the opportunity to take charge of the flight for a few moments and feel what it’s like to control the glider.

Thanks to the long bright days of the region, paragliding can be enjoyed from May to September for summer flights and from December to April for winter flights. The first take off is at 9am through to 7pm for the last, giving you plenty of time to take in the stunning scenery.

Belle expérience malgré un manque de professionnalisme

Posted
About the activity:

Une belle expérience en parapente au dessus de la vallée de Morzine. Un peu courte malheureusement car peu de thermiques et un planning de rotations chargé...

About the Pro:

Manque de professionnalisme dans la prise en charge. Très peu d'explications sur les procédures de décollage et d'atterrissage et les règles de sécurité. Gros point négatif: pas de locale pour déposer ses affaires le temps du vol (ski, sac etc...). Résultat mes skis ont été volés pendant que je faisais mon baptême et donc grosse déception à l'arrivée. C'est bien dommage.

About the spot:

Spot un peu dangereux, surtout à l'atterrissage qui se fait au milieu de la zone d'apprentissage de ski pour enfant sur le front de neige! Risque d'accident à l'arrivée certain!
