What is paragliding?
Paragliding is a leisure sport that allows you to stay in the air for a long time using only a paraglider or "wing". In principle, you take off from the side of a steep mountain or hill, after which you can fly by using only the strength of the wind and the resistance of the paraglider's canopy. As there is no propulsion, you gradually descend during the flight taking advantage of the updraft, which can easily take up to two hours. During this time, sitting in the harness under the paraglider, you will have the opportunity to discover the area from above and fully immerse yourself in the experience and the landscape.
Flight safety for beginners and advanced
You can visit several schools in Savoie to discover this alpine region from a new angle. Beginners will do a tandem flight with an instructor, with the pilot sitting behind you as you control the parachute, while you have maximum fun. This way you will always be safe. This activity can also be accessible to young children and people with mobility difficulties. Would you like to learn more and possibly be able to fly yourself? There are also a few schools near the campsite that offer more in-depth courses and courses to make this possible. In short, there is enough to suit everyone's tastes.
