Parapenting

Parapenting is a wonderful experience for those looking for a truly memorable holiday in Les Gets. Called Paragliding in English, though most people still refer to it by the French name Parapenting, this is where you fly from the top of the mountain using a large parachute before gliding down to the valley floor. It may sound quite extreme, but it is in actual fact much more gentle than you might think.

You start normally on the top of Mont Chery in Les Gets. You are strapped to the instructor, who will do all the flying for you. Together you jog down the mountain side for just a few paces before the parachute lifts you off into the air! You then glide over Les Gets village. The views on a sunny day are just spectacular, there's no better way to see the stunning scenery our mountains have to offer.

It's surprisingly quiet and gentle in the air, it almost feels at times like you are just floating above the valley. It's about a 15 minute flight before you land just outside the village centre.

Air Libre offer Parapenting in Les Gets. We will arrange all of this for you though. It's best to let us know before your holiday so we can secure availability, though it's normally possible to arrange this once you are in resort as well. It can take a bit of planning to get the right weather, so we might need to change days if the conditions are not co-operating, though the majority of our summer days are perfect for parapenting.
