Paragliding/Parapenting

Paragliding or 'parapenting' is a very popular activity in the Alps and involves flying a 'wing' in the thermals high above the valley floor. Flights are accompanied by an instructor and can be as sedate as you like, or more exhilarating if you choose. Basic aerobatics like stalls and spins are superb fun!

If you love flying then you can return and try a 3-5 day course to get your own licence from £350 (supplier terms apply).

Flights take off high up in the mountains from a start point to which you are driven by the flight school. Flights can last more than 15-20 minutes and the sensation is simply sensational! You can pay an additional amount to have an extended flight lasting up to 40 minutes.
