Travel like an eagle using the thermals in the Mont Blanc range
XL flight is more than a paraglider flight... it is a true journey.
Take off takes place at either Planpraz or Plan de l'Aiguille depending on the time of year.
You will fly over the summit of Brévent, alpine lakes or the Mer de Glace Glacier. With a little luck, you will be able to fly over Grands Montets and soar in front of the large granite faces of the Drus. A real immersion into the high mountains.
Your state-certified and highly experienced paraglider pilot will share his passion with you in complete safety. After a few steps to inflate the paraglider on a gently sloping take off, you will be in the air, comfortably seated and hovering like an eagle.
The duration of the flight is weather dependant with aerological conditions, the time of the flight and the well-being of the passenger in the air. Estimate flight time between 45 and 60mins in the air.
The whole activity will take 1.5 hours, between meeting and the landing.
First XL flight of the day is at 11am.
Please purchase your lift ticket before meeting the pilot (one-way to Planpraz or Plan de l'Aiguille).
