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

Great, super and amazing to fly right in front of Mont Blanc and above Chamonix. We made reservations in advance. The location, and the cable car, was easy to find. Smooth service and all in time. We took the cable car up the Mountain. A small walk to the take off zone and we were up in the air in... More

Caroline and Lionel of Absolute Chamonix are such a nice couple, they made our first ever paragliding experience one we will never forget. They were very calming and helped to dissolve our pre-flight nerves. Everything was explained really clearly so we knew what to do. The flight was so relaxing and the views were absolute amazing, it is definitely the... More
