Activity description

Come and fly like a bird with Frédérique Chaix and Pierre Turrel, the 2 qualified pilots of Praloup Parapente on the heights of Barcelonnette!

The easiest way to fly is to take a first flight, no skills are required, just the desire to fly!

Located in the heart of the Alpes de Haute Provence, the mountains have a privileged location and will allow you to enjoy paragliding in winter, and then relax on one of the many sunny terraces (300 days of sunshine per year) of Pra Loup, a stone's throw from Barcelonnette.

On the program of the flight exploration of 800m of difference in altitude:

- The access to the take-off on the Peguieou ridge is done either by using the ski lifts of the resort, by ski or even by snowboard (very easy green run level).
- The paragliding instructor prepares the equipment and then you sit comfortably in the harness. He explains the take-off technique which consists simply in letting you slide on your skis.
- Once in the air, you enjoy your 10 to 20 minute panoramic flight and contemplate the wonderful landscapes around Pra Loup.
- If you wish, the pilot can hand over the controls of the paraglider to you.
- The landing is done on the plateau of Praloup with your participation, you just have to bend your legs and put your skis or snowboard on the ground.
