The Verdon, land of Paragliding!

The Verdon, the country of paragliding !

Come discover the Verdon differently! Fly over the most beautiful landscapes of the territory by paraglider. Between the Castillon Lake, lavender fields, the Napoleon road and natural areas, your first flight in a bi-place will remain an unforgettable memory.

The types of flights…

First flights or two-seater flights are done in tandem with an instructor.
which will make you feel all the sensations of paragliding during the flight (20 minutes).

Several paragliding experiences are possible, for those who have always dreamed of flying, for lovers!

To start gently, we recommend the discovery flight with very quiet conditions that will allow you to fully enjoy the landscapes in complete serenity.

For a second flight or for the more adventurous in search of adrenaline, we recommend an ascending flight or sensation flight.


Did you know?

The long flight allows flying longer, but also much higher!
the head in the clouds at no less than 500 metres above the take-off! A tip for this flight,
it is important to cover yourself well!



Paragliding first flight

We made a first paragliding experience (discovery) as a couple. A great experience supervised by great instructors (Thomas and Antoine). We would be delighted to try again. We highly recommend it!

Great experience, top team!!

A discovery flight for my 2 daughters (8 and 12) and for me. An incredible experience with a very professional team. An exceptional welcome, a lot of kindness. Thank you for this great moment and see you soon.

A unique experience to live!!!

I was simply overwhelmed by the beauty of the landscapes. Flying over the Gorges du Verdon and discovering this jewel of nature like a bird left me speechless.
Special mention to my instructor David, for his kindness, his explanations, his thoughtfulness and his professionalism. A very successful initiation that already makes me want to go for new adventures!
Thanks also to the whole team for the perfect organisation of the flights, everything is well planned to leave only room for pleasure.
Many thanks!
