Activity description

Come discover tandem paragliding accompanied by a state-certified instructor above the majestic and famous Piton des Neiges (Cilaos), Reunion island!

Culminating in the center of the island of Reunion, the Piton des Neiges is an inactive volcano at 3,070.50 meters above sea level, overlooking the Cirque of Cilaos. It's the highest peak in the Indian Ocean!

The Courant d'R school offers you a 45 to 60-minute tandem paragliding flight over the highest peak of the Indian Ocean!

Your instructor will meet you in Cilaos at 2 am for a climb to the summit (about 5 hours, 1800m) or at the top at around 7 am the day of the flight if you slept at the Piton des Neiges refuge the day before.

For the hike, you'll need about 3 hours to reach the cottage of the Piton before the last climb of 1:30hr to reach the summit at dawn. You then enjoy a 360° view of Reunion.

After the briefing, you gear up and take off with the pilot. You fly along the ramparts and above the Cirque of Cilaos. The smooth landing takes place in a large field.

This tandem flight is dedicated for good hikers.
