With its 300+ days of sunshine a year and the unique microclimate created by the mountains of the Ecrins National Park, the Southern French Alps is a perfect location for paragliding and the fact that it is a well preserved region means that you can fly without hundreds of other paragliders getting in your way!
In the Southern French Alps, we now offer two courses (both consisting of 5 full days of instruction): a "Learn to Fly Paragliding" beginner course, and an intermediate paragliding course focusing on solo flights. These paragliding courses are possible from May through to October.
Paragliding is one of our most popular activities (both in summer and winter!) and the best way to discover the unique sensations of flying in the air is to choose a "taster tandem flight" as part of your activity choices when you book either our highly popular summer multi activity holiday or winter multi activity holiday. The only difference in winter is that you will take off and land on skis!
True thrill seekers can also go for a more sensational "sporty flight", where your instructor will do figures and manoeuvres in the air that will really get your adrenaline going!
All our courses and tandem flights are run by fully qualified and experienced instructors operating within European regulations and guidelines, and all the specific equipment (except skis in winter) you will need for this exhilarating activity is provided.
