Run off mountains and glide with alpine birds of prey on scenic tandem paragliding flights in the Aosta Valley.
Ever wondered how it really feels to fly? Head to the summit of Pila for a chance to spread your wings and glide across Aosta on an aerial flight you'll never forget - circling medieval turrets and ancient castles on the seasonal thermals that flow through the Gran Paradiso National Park.
A ski resort in the town of Aosta, Pila offers amazing views from its summit at 1800m with a vista that includes the highest peaks in Europe from Monte Rosa to Mont Blanc. Two hours from Italy's most popular ski resort, Courmayeur, Pila is also a 3-hour drive from Tignes in France and Zermatt in Switzerland, making it one of the most central and well-connected parts of the Alps.
Meeting at the main cable car in Pila, this tandem paragliding flight will take off from 1,250m and descent 650m. After a short safety briefing and practice run with your instructor, you will set off from the jump-off point and glide for approximately 10-30 minutes over the town of Aosta, crossing the Bora river and circling medieval castles that include Fenis, Sarre, Saint-Pierre,and Aymavilles. Depending on the season, there will be a grass/snow landing in Grassan.
Flight duration will be considerably longer during the summer season thanks to the warm thermals which make it perfect for scenic flights - for added adventure, winter offers amazing views and exciting snow landings. Paragliding is a sport that depends on weather conditions, the meeting time and location are subject to changes.
