Activity description

Take off from Chorges and admire exceptional aerial views of the Alps during your first paragliding flight over Lake Serre-Ponçon!

This paragliding experience in Chorges is a unique and exciting way to discover the natural beauty of the Alps from the air! Whether you're a thrill-seeker or simply looking for a different way to explore nature, this paragliding experience at Lac de Serre-Ponçon is for you.

Only available in the morning, the discovery flight offers very calm conditions, perfect for a first flight. If you'd like a slightly longer flight, the pilot can take advantage of thermal lift (ascending flight), allowing you to wander around the area and enjoy the scenery. Finally, the prestige flight offers an even longer experience, still taking advantage of thermal lift, but also offering a few thrills! There's something for everyone on this paragliding experience from Chorges!

Around Chorges, you'll be surrounded by some incredible points of interest. Lake Serre-Ponçon, one of Europe's largest man-made lakes, provides a spectacular backdrop with its turquoise waters surrounded by majestic mountains. You can also admire the impressive peaks of the Southern Alps, such as Piolit and the Aiguilles de Chabrières. Ideally located just 20 minutes from Gap, Chorges is the perfect place to take off and experience a timeless moment in splendid natural surroundings!

Your first paragliding experience in the Alps will be simple and safe. You will be accompanied by an experienced instructor who will guide you throughout the experience and adapt to your level and wishes. After a brief introduction and instruction session, you'll be ready to take off. You'll soar through the air, soaring above the mountains and valleys, with a breathtaking view of Lac de Serre-Ponçon and the surrounding area. You'll feel a sensation of absolute freedom and pure adrenalin as you fly over the magnificent scenery in complete safety!

So go ahead, meet your instructor in Chorges and discover paragliding above Lake Serre-Ponçon!
