As soon as I met Lionel I knew he was the man for jumping off a mountain with. He was quiet, yet capable and made the whole thing very fuss free. I immediately felt it was going to be all ok and my nerves quickly disappeared . The weather was not great on our initial flight time and we waited... More

My husband (73 yrs old) and I (younger!) wanted to have a paragliding experience on our trip to France from the USA. Caroline and Lionel spoke good English and gave clear, encouraging directions. It was very smooth and we felt that we were in very competent hands. Beautiful views!!! Great memory, great value, great to have met Lionel and Caroline.

Money well spent! My family of 5 (including a 5, 7, and 10 year old) experienced the thrill of a lifetime with Absolute Chamonix. The staff is professional, kind, patient, and encouraging. The best paragliding company in the area, hands down. We cannot wait to come back to Chamonix and do it again!

The sky is definitely the best place to view this area... Highly recommend! Cracking views, awesome barrel rolls and a nice chat on the way down with a paragliding world champ!

A truely wonderful experience. A must do activity whilst visiting Chamonix. We were a group of 3 and they were able to organise it so we could go all together which made it very special for us. Our instructors, Caroline, Lionel and Antonio were very experience and made us feel at ease throughout the experience. They also made it very... More

Wow! What a wonderful experience! I highly recommend going to Absolute Chamonix Paragliding for breathtaking views and a unique ride around the town. While we were in the air, Caroline gave me a tour of the town in English. Also, she has a go pro and takes a video and pictures of your ride. It was so amazing. Definitely worth... More

I came in for a private speed riding course and could not have been happier with the people, arrangements and instruction from Absolute Chamonix! If you're looking to learn to speed ride, it doesn't get much better.

My 3 boys 16, 13 and 10 YO and myself took the experience. Personally I have height fears, and I had many doubts prior to taking the decision. It was all changed one minute at the air. The feeling is superb. I felt calm and confident. Flying like a bird in the spectacular views of the Mont Blanc ridge over... More

So impressed with Caroline (my husband flew with Lionel). She was extremely competent and very calming for my pre-flight jitters. Just a fabulous experience gliding off Mt Brevent and seeing the scenery form this vantage. Can't express the feeling of gliding -amazing. Take advantage of the video!!! Caroline filmed the whole trip and took some stills too!! Its worth it... More
