Winter paragliding in Chamonix

Winter paragliding in Chamonix gives an amazing panorama over the valley and is a fantastic thing to do on a sunny day.

Exhilarating and beautiful, accessible to almost everyone, it’s one of my favourite things that the valley has to offer. It’s a great option if you want a day off from skiing – an unforgettable adventure high above the pistes.
