Superb morning of fun, 2 guides 4 riders of similar pace made for an adrenaline fuelled 20+km downhill ride. up to Semnoz on the bus and all the way back on the bike, full sus lapierre zesty's all the gear and not much pedalling. perfect. Would deffo do again if I was back there. guides were great, showing us drop offs and obstacles before we decided to take them on and no crashes.

Excellent Downhill 1. time experience can't stop smiling when i think about it.
Started out at the warehouse where the instructor explained thoroughly the do's and dont's when going downhill.
then we where geared up with, fullface helmets, knee and elbow pads, so bring your own glasses and don't forget to bring water in a light backpack.
after the bus ride, which is puplic and you pay for that in cash, we drove after the instructor to the first section, where he explained what to expect, and how to handle the bike on this section, he did that before every section we rode.
The course is for first time downhill riders, but if you have a few years of MTB/VTT riding like i do, you should take the Perf or one of the other rides.
This was an awesome experience and i will be back to try the other routes next year.

The event started with a walk up through the gorge and pretty villages, 20 minutes quite steep but no problem if you're fit.
Our guide, Etienne, made is very confident from the first arms above head water slide to the last 30m waterfall abseil. Sometimes with kids the experience can be a bit less extreme but this was definitely not the case. Loved it!!

Rented a bike to cycle round the lake. The staff said it takes maximum 3 hours to cycle round the lake but I hired the bike for 4 hours in case I took longer. I'm an amateur road cyclist but was unsure how long I would take on a mountain bike!
The bike cost 14€ for 4 hours rental and came with an option of a helmet and a basket. The staff were friendly and gave me a map of the lake and suggested cycling round it clockwise as this was the flattest route with minimal hills. I managed to cycle round it in just over 2 hours as I went quite fast. I did stop occasionally to check the view. The path is good. I was confused at one point whether I was travelling the correct way as just before Menthon-Saint-Bernard the cycle route disappears and you cycle through some villages.
Definitely recommend cycling round the lake if you are in Annecy and Takamaka are great to hire from.

First of all, my family thought the experience was once in a lifetime great. However, you must travel from Annecy to Doussard on your own. Takamaka provides no transportation to the actual area where the paragliding occurs. You have to take a bus (30-40 minutes) or a taxi (65 euros one way). The problem with the bus is that it runs so infrequently that you waste hours of precious time in Annecy to arrive at Doussard. For example, our flight time was 5 pm. In Oder to ride the bus, we would have to board the bus at 230, arrive in Doussard a little after 3 pm and wait till 5 to paraglide. It's just as bad coming back

Check the bus schedule before you reserve your flight time. Both to Doussard and then back to Annecy

Thanks for your Ann comment.
It is true that is not easy to use the bus schedule in Annecy, and your advise is correct.
THat is why we offer to rent a bike with - 50% of discount to reach the meeting point of the activite by bike
