With no prior experience required, anyone, from 5 to 80+ years old, can comfortably experience flying with Verbier Paragliding in the amazing landscapes of Val de Bagnes.
With many years of solid, world class experience in a number of paragliding disciplines, our pilots have thousands of tandem flights to their credit. Your pilot will guide you through a gentle take off on a grassy (or snowy) slope before ensuring that you are comfortably seated in the air to enjoy the breath-taking mountainous views.
The "discovery" flight (all year round):
The flight will take about 15-20 minutes, depending on the weather conditions.
You will have the opportunity to discover paragliding by hovering the sky above Verbier with the 1300m in height difference between the take off and the landing. Once you are comfortably seated in front of your pilot, if weather conditions allow and you are up for it, he/she will give you the opportunity to take control of the glider and guide you through the basics of flying.
The whole adventure will last for approximately 1h15, from the time of the appointment until the moment when you leave with a mind filled with unforgettable memories.
The"double airtime" (In spring and summer depending on weather conditions):
You will spend between 30 and 40 minutes in the air and discover what a thermal flight is. Depending on the weather conditions of the day, your pilot will gain high altitudes to make you visit the region through unique perspectives. You will also have the opportunity to take control of the paraglider yourself, while your pilot guides you through the experience, if the conditions in the air allow.
The adventure will last for approximately 1h40, starting from the moment that we meet until the moment when we land and say goodbye (but hopefully not for long!).
The "speed riding" tandem (winter only):
The "speed riding" experience in tandem is for advanced skiers only, who are in the search for some additional thrills. The flight lasts only a few minutes but in a speed that reaches above 100 km/h. So, this adventure is very unique and intense. We will take off from the Attelas (2650m) and land at Carrefour (1775m).
The experience will last for about 45 minutes from the time of the appointment until you leave us with your body still full of adrenaline.
- Price: CHF 120.00 (+ CHF 30.00 if you chose to purchase the video of the flight)
