Paragliding in the Gouffre Valley
Paragliding is closest way there is of flying like a bird. The silence, the landscape under your feet, the sliding air that supports you… Tandem flying requires no experience on behalf of the passenger. A two-seat paraglider with a larger wing surface is used. The few safety steps necessary to insure a safe take-off are given by the pilot instructor before the flight.
The tandem paragliding flight is the ideal activity for those who wish to experience the sensations of free flight at least once without investing in formal training.
Location: wind speed and direction determine where the flight takes place.
- Mont des Florents in Baie-Saint-Paul, altitude 350m
- Cap Martin in St Urbain, altitude 450m
During the flight, the passenger is placed to the front of and slightly below the pilot, not so as to block his vision. This way, the passenger can freely admire the panorama all around him (or her). Besides, being seated during the flight allows one to take in the experience in relative comfort.
The flight is entirely controlled by the pilot instructor. Nevertheless, conditions permitting, the passenger can also try his/her hand at piloting the paraglider under the pilot's supervision. Don't worry! It is completely optional and up to you to decide!
