Knee injuries kept my daughter and I from skiing, so we decided to try paragliding instead. What a wonderful experience! Caroline and Lionel were so friendly and professional; we never had a moment's hesitation. It was a gorgeous day and the thermals were perfect for swirling along high over Brévent (2000+ meters high). Caroline gave me a full commentary/tour of... More

Decided to jump off Mt Brevent with my female co-pilot and all I can say is what a totally amazing experience!! Made to feel calm and focussed from the minute we ascended to 2,200mtrs in the cable car to landing nice and softly some 20 mins after take off. Brilliant experience with a top flyer, totally recommended by me.

Marvellous and unforgettable initiation flight from Plan De L'Aiguille in Chamonix. I went up with Patrice and Caroline and jumped with Patrice. Very pleasant instructor made me at ease. Very stressful at the top when preparing to launch but once your up in the air, it's absolutely magical. We flew along the Massif du Mont Blanc close to the Glacier... More

I flew with Absolute Chamonix on 14 August 2013. A fantastic experience and something I'll not forget. Amongst what can appear to be a confusing mass of paragliding operators, Lionel and Caroline stand-out as hugely experienced, highly capable and very professional. They fitted my flight in at very short notice and gave me all the information I needed to prepare... More

A warm sunny day in Chamonix, and what better thing to do than go jump off a mountain! We were on our honeymoon in Chamonix and we talked one another (nervously) into trying tandem parapente. Caroline and Christophe met us at the bootom of the lift and we went up to Plan du Midi at 2,300 metres. They talked to... More

I have had a terrible fear of flying for years resulting in every flight to a holiday destination being a nightmare. I decided I needed to get myself together and try to get over this fear & go for a parapente. I called in to see Lionel who really put me at ease. On the flight day I was met... More

My son and I spent 6 weeks in Europe and Ansolute Chamonix was our very best experience. Caroline and her husband came to our hotel (L’Hermitage) to pick us up for our flight. We chose the Grand Montet flight which was from the highest mountain. The staff of fliers were all extremely knowledgeable, reassuring, and had the highest caliber of... More
