The tandem paragliding flight from Planpraz is definitely a bucket list experience on earth and should definitely be on the to-do list whilst in Chamonix! The takeoff is from a magnificent viewpoint overlooking the Chamonix valley, the plunging glaciers and the highest peak in Europe, the Mont Blanc. Close to Chamonix town centre, the meeting point at the Brévent-Planpraz gondola is only a 7minute walk from the tourist office.


Your certified and highly experienced paraglider pilot will share their passion with you in complete safety. After a few steps to inflate the wing on a gently sloping takeoff, you will rapidly be in the air, comfortably seated, soaring like an eagle.

The duration of the flight depends on the weather and aerological conditions, time of day and the well-being of the passenger in the air. A flight can vary between 15 and 30 minutes in the air. The whole activity will take 1 hour between meeting your pilot and landing back in Chamonix.


Please allow enough time to purchase your gondola ticket before meeting your pilot (€17,50 one-way to Planpraz)
