What you'll do

I will take you in charge from the landing to go up with our shuttle to the take off. We take off from Col de la Forclaz for a magical flight, in a unique landscape, between lake and mountain.

Once in the air we enjoy a panoramic view of Lake Annecy, the Bauges massif, the city of Annecy and Mont Blanc (when the conditions permit). Our objective is to go stay in the air and go eventually even higher thanks to the thermals (hot air).

I would adapt the flight according to your desires and your experience. You can pilot the paraglider and do some acrobatics if you feel it. We are considering a 20-25 minute flight in the afternoon from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. for 115 euros, 10-15 minutes flight in the mornings from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. or after 19h for 100 euros, and 150 euros in the afternoon at 3 p.m. or 4.30 p.m. for 40 -45 minutes of flight.

The landing is very soft.

Other remarks:
Be at the Rendez-Vous 15 minutes before the set time.

I discovered paragliding flight in 2006, at the age of 15, thanks to my father (also a paraglider pilot). Being passionate since the beginning of this activity, I invested myself in the high level for several years (World Cup, European and World Championships) before building my professional life in paragliding.

Paragliding instructor since 2015, qualified tandem handicare and organizer of cross (remote flight) and SIV (flight incident simulation) courses, I offer you my experience at the service of my passion: paragliding flight.

A really incredible experience. If you are in annecy you should do this. It’s just a whole different way to see the area. The crew was great and organized and their is clearly a lot of expertise in paragliding here because their seem to be hundreds jumping off the mountain every day. Try to get up to the top early to see others jumping because there is a viewing area with a little food truck on top of the mountain

Truly wonderful! Not only was the experience itself absolutely breathtaking, but Alex also found a spot for us to fly on short notice. He was very professional and made us novices feel perfectly safe. Would recommend to anyone!

Paragliding was a great experience! However, my review is solely based on the fact that this experience isn’t for solo travelers. After we landed from paragliding, I asked Alex and his colleague if they’ll be driving me down the mountain back to the original meeting point so I can grab a taxi back to Annecy. I was told no and instead was dropped off at a bus station in the middle of no where. Alex assured me the bus would come very soon in 10min or so. However, I was stranded in the middle of no where in the French alps in 24C+ weather waiting 40 MINUTES for the bus! As a young female, I don’t appreciate the lack of safety the host has for his guests. This experience isn’t solo-travel friendly and I wouldn’t recommend it if you’re traveling alone.

Très bonne expérience surtout dans ce cadre , bémol du forcing de prises de photos et vidéos pendant l’activité pour agrémenter le supplément souvenir.

Awesome experience to see the lake from above. Alex and his wife are the most genuine, inspiring and charismatic people. We couldn’t have wished for better instructors!
