Summer in Chamonix

Paragliding in Chamonix

On those glorious warm summer days when you’re whiling away the afternoon at the Lac du Passy/ climbing at Chesery/ mountain biking in Les Houches, if you take a moment to look up you’ll see swarms of paragliders circling overhead. The sport is big in Chamonix with a landing field right in the centre of town. Popular launch areas include Brevent and Plan de l’Aiguille. But if you want a really thrilling flight (complete with crampons) book a flight from the Aiguille du Midi itself. Your flight from 3842 metres will take you over glaciers and alpine peaks, a unique viewpoint combing serenity and adrenalin in one spectacular package.
