Activity description

Initiate yourself to paragliding in Annecy and discover the basics of piloting in a fun and safe way with a passionate and experienced instructor!

The Annecy spot remains today one of the main paragliding centers in the world. The aerology is particularly favorable over the lake of Annecy with winds that are generally light and thermals that are abundant, making it an ideal place to practice paragliding!

You will start your morning of discovery on the "school slope" where you will learn the basic techniques of handling the equipment and where you will practice taking off, as well as maneuvering the wing. You will debrief your first sensations with your instructor before going on the hunt for thrills!

Depending on the schedule and the weather of the day, you will take your place on the take-off path before taking off for an unforgettable paragliding flight over Annecy and its lake. You will have the opportunity to admire the mountainous landscapes of Haute-Savoie, with the Dents de Lanfon, La Tournette and the Semnoz rising around the lake of Annecy.

Come and enjoy paragliding in Annecy, one of the best places in the world to start thanks to its incredible environment!
