A paragliding flight from 4000m, an unforgettable experience!
With many years of experience in mountain flying, the Alpwind instructors will support you in your first steps at high altitude flights. We will travel to Helvetian territory for this great adventure. A jump in a vehicle across the border into Switzerland, to the Zermatt/Saas-Fe region from where several 4000m peaks in this crown of mountains call out to us: Breithorn, Allalihorn, Stralhorn, Monte Rosa... Wearing a harness and crampons to cross the glaciers and maybe even have to use the ice axe a little. But what a joy to reach the top! Of course we will choose our objective according to the weather and aerological conditions before we take-off and fly to the valley.

The objective over these two days is to achieve at least one superb flight from 4000m, depending on the weather conditions and logistics it may be possible to achieve two flights.
This will of course depend on the weather and aerological conditions but also on your motivation to climb and your skills as a pilot.
This is why it is important to contact us ahead of time to define the scope of this magnificent project.
The Alpwind team will guide you as best as possible, according to your skills to a suitable summit.
Descend flying above the seracs
Every moment stolen in the mountains is a like a rare precious gem that must be enjoyed and treasured.
These moments are rare and intense, they are not consumer products. You must be patient and accept what nature has to offer with curiosity and humility.
Your instructor-guide will give you the best advice and will endeavor to optimise the ascent conditions and chances of take-off but you must also be resilient and motivated, there is no stress, no pressure. Your safety and enjoyment are our main concerns.
