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

We were staying in chamonix and booked this adventure as complete novices, and we were not disapppointed! Lionel and Catherine, the proprietors of absolute chamonix, were are guides which made it a truelly personal experience. Their English was exemplary which was a relief as despite having some french skills you really don't want anything lost in translation when jumping off... More

It was an absolutely lovely and amazing experience to fly off the Planpraz with Caroline. She is very professional, calm and explained everything very easily and made me feel very comfortable. I can highly recommend gliding through the air with her.

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
