Paragliding in the beautiful Abondance Valley
Always wanted to fly like a free bird with a breathtaking view? Then come paragliding in the beautiful Abondance Valley. Unlike skydiving, where your parachute slows down the fall, paragliding aims to stay in the air if possible. This way you fly along majestic mountain ranges and over beautiful valleys.
The hi-tech materials used, such as the colourful screens that serve as graceful wings, are amazingly easy to transport and weigh around seven kilos.
You run, accompanied by a professional, down a mountain together, from where the flight begins. You have two choices:
- DISCOVERY FLIGHT
Depart at 1600 meters above sea level for 10 to 12 minutes, depending on the weather, and discover the mountains like you have never seen them before! You can book a Discovery jump, starting from 70 euros. You can find more information at the tourist office of La Chapelle d'Abondance.
- THE GREAT FLIGHT
Start at 2000 meters (about twice the height of the Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world) altitude for a flight time between 20 and 40 minutes. The flight time depends on the weather and that is why it is so different. This flight is ideal to enjoy an incredible ride over the Abondance valley. A Great Flight jump can be booked from 100 euro. You can find more information at the tourist office of La Chapelle d'Abondance.
