Activity description

Take off this winter to discover this unique sensation for about 10 minutes, facing the Mont Blanc with a paragliding expert from Val Thorens.

In the middle of winter, the Alps are transformed and offer incredible landscapes of white and light. Don't miss the opportunity to fly over them and take in the sights thanks to this paragliding flight over Val Thorens offered by Libre Envol!

The instructor installs the paraglider, puts the harness on you and gives you advice for the take-off which is easy to do and will give you extraordinary sensations, just like the flight. Thanks to your paraglider, you will fly over Val Thorens facing the Belleville valley, dressed in a dazzling coat of snow: a spectacle not to be missed!

The landing is very easy. A 10m ski slide right next to the 'la gentiane' slope.
Opt for this original paragliding activity in the middle of winter from Val Thorens to get the most out of your flight and leave with the video of your flight on an SD card.

While some may see this activity as thrill-seeking, it was in fact a very serene way to take in the sights from a new perspective.

Absolutely breathtaking and magical experience!

Nice experience but pretty short, 4 min flight time max. Expected more. Also one in structor for 6 people, took us 3 hours to finish all people since we had to go one by one

Nous avons passer un chouette moment, on était 4 à le faire avec 1 moniteur Didier. Très sympathique, mais nous étions un peu choqué et déçu que la descente ne dure que 4minutes. C'est une activité que je conseils car c'était très agréable.

Nous avons réservé le parapente pour 2 personnes pour un jeudi. Etant donné les mauvaises conditions climatiques prévues le jeudi (chute de neige et visibilité restreinte), le PRO nous a proposé de décaler au lendemain. Ce fut une excellente idée !
