The most beautiful tandem paragliding flight in the world. An immersion into the high mountains!

The tandem paragliding flight from the Aiguille du Midi is a unique experience in the world.

Take off is located under the Aiguille du Midi ridge facing north or south depending on the wind direction.

You must descend the snow covered ridge equipped with crampons, roped and secured by a high mountain guide. This descent is particularly impressive and reserved for sporty passengers.

Your state-certified and highly experienced paraglider pilot will share his passion with you in complete safety. After a few steps to inflate the wing on the glacier you will be in the air, comfortably seated and hovering like an eagle.

Estimate between 30 to 50 minutes in the air. The decor is surreal between the vertiginous north face of the Aiguille du Midi, the towering granite peaks and the glacial white valley.

The whole activity will take 3 hours between meeting and landing.

Please be aware, in the high mountains the weather forecast is very important, it will be important to be flexible for the day of your flight or lucky...

The departure of the Aiguille du Midi cable car is located in the centre of Chamonix and our reservation shop Skiset & Wing over Chamonix is located on the esplanade of the cable car station.

The meeting takes place between 7.30 and 9am.

Please purchase your lift ticket before meeting the pilot (one-way to Aiguille du midi or Mont Blanc Unlimited pass if you wish to use other lifts the same day).
