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

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
