Call and set up time at 1:00 PM. The day we suppose to fly, they called at 10 AM to change it to 1:45 PM because bad weather. It's understood. Then at 12:00 PM, they call again asking if we can do it now. Unfortunately, we about 15 minutes from the Meeting Point. They said they are waiting for us.... More

We went up the lift and were in the air within minutes of arriving at the takeoff area. I felt very safe, and paragliding isn't as hard as I thought. Lionel and Caroline are a power couple with great stories, and they're very sensitive to your comfort level. Safe, easy, thrilling ride. 10/10 would do again!

This was a truly amazing experience with Absolute Chamonix - very professional, friendly and made the whole experience relaxing. Flying without wings! Recommended for all ages, Lionel & Caroline are fantastic at what they do ("nice office!" said Lio as we were 2,000 meters up, catching the thermals). Take the leap with these guys! Brendan, Ireland

I booked a paragliding experience for my 18 year old nephew and myself. The on-line booking process was really easy and all the necessary information was provided clearly. We flew with Caroline and Lionel. Both were fantastic. They gave clear direction about the process and safety. The experience was amazing!!! We took off from Pan Platz and flew for around... More

We decided to try this activity as one of us had an ankle injury so snowboarding was a big no. The Absolute Chamonix Paragliding office was at the end of the road where we were staying so we popped in and met Caroline (one of the owners). She was great and explained to us the best day to fly given... More

Because their beautiful propaganda caught my eye on-line, I went to their office and got a ticket to fly on a tandem paragling / paid 100 Euros in advance. The lady in charge scheduled me at 11:30 a.m. with "Xavier". That day we got a phone call that they had changed the time and the tandem... which happened to be... More

Took a tandem flight with Lionel from Grand Montets! From the booking till the day itself. The whole time it was really fuss free. They were friendly and they know what they are doing and it just makes me feel at ease even though it was my first time doing any sort of "flying". Requested for the video/photo footage. It... More

Phenomenal....I may be slightly hooked. Just a little adrenaline before a very peaceful and jaw dropping gorgeous ride above the Glacier and town of Chamonix.

I have jumped out of an airplane before but nothing compares with the beauty and peacefulness of paragliding in Chamonix. We are so glad that we signed up with Absolute and went with Caroline (5 time French Champion)and Eddie. It was a partially cloudy morning with great conditions and views to Mt Blanc. The wildlife viewing along the cliffs below... More
