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

I could enjoy very much and promised him to fly next year, too. I'd like to challenge acrobat flying next time! Thanks a lot,... More

Tandem Paragliding in Chamonix Valley. Lionel and Caroline were excellent pilots - very friendly and very helpful. Could not recommend them enough. Take a camera for some stunning shots - we also paid for a flight to be filmed - well worth it for the reasonable extra cost. We had excellent conditions and climbed quite high so our flight was...

We did it today!! It was absolutely amazing!! My sister was terrified but the instructor was very patient and calm. She knew she wouldn't be able to run for take off, so two other instructors helped moving her forward (her legs were shaking haha). And for those who are looking for female instructors, we requested two, although Caroline is the... More
