I did my first initiation training to paragliding in this school in April 2019. And I must say it was an amazing experience, the school provides an individual approach to all the students which made the experience a great one. I returned in October 2019 to take additional classes (stage autonomie) and will definitely go back to further strengthen my paragliding skills as soon as the international travel restrictions are lifted.

I booked for myself and a friend to do the Prestige Paragliding package and the 45-50 minute flight was worth it on a beautiful, clear sunny day. The staff and team were punctual and professional and friendly, looking after us every step of the way. I was soaring above the mountains and Annecy and it was unforgettable. The timeframe was perfect and with the great weather and the view was incredible. I also had great photos to record the experience by GoPro and also by the staff. I would recommend this to anyone who goes to Annecy on a holiday, it is worth ticking off the adventure list.

First time paraglyding (tandem) experience for me. So I was a bit nervous. But my instructor was very nice. They really make you feel at ease and explain everything in detail. It's not cheap but you need to do this ! The experience, the view, ...... amazing

We both brought our 12 year old girl to have our first paragliding above Annecy lake. We reserved on-line and drove to the office at Talloire. They drove us in a minivan up to the top of mountain. This took about 15 minutes. We could get English guide too. Each of us had our own guides. I went with Mr.Alain. He was professional and friendly. I felt nervous at first. But after wearing all the gears and seeing many people doing it. I felt more confident. There was a large slant area to start taking off. Alain took pictures of me and told me what to do. He set up his equipment and told me to be attached to his equipment. Then I had to walk 2-3 steps towards the edge of the cliff and he told me to run faster. I felt heavy at the back just a few second and then we were off the cliff. Yes, I flew. It was amazing. Magnificent panoramic view of the mountains and colorful Annecy lake. I felt very comfortable up there. It was like you were sitting on the chair in the air. Mr. Alain was very calm and professional. He flew it softly. He did let me control the paragliding. It was fun. He also flew me in the adventure way. Also he landed us nicely on the ground. It was an amazing experience. All three of us love it.

I'm terrified of heights and jumping off of things, and was freaking out about paragliding, but this was such a great experience! I'm so glad I did it! My guide Chris was lovely and we took some pics from the take off pad, quickly got the equipment ready and then took off! There was no time for me to worry! Such amazing views and a very peaceful flight down! I'm considering doing it again! My partner also had a go and loved it too- He got to steer the parachute and did some fancy manoeuvre which he enjoyed. Honestly if you are not sure because you are a little scared, do it anyway! You'll have a blast!
