A paragliding flight at 4000m, an amazing adventure !

High above snow-covered peaks you'll take off from Alpine glaciers....

With a long and serious experience in high altitude flights, Alpwind instructors comes along with you on the most beautiful peaks of the Alps for a breathtaking paragliding journey.

There are several options according to your climbing skills. For a beginner we can head up to Zermatt and take-off from Breithorn, just in front of the Matterhorn.

With a little bit of climbing experience, after a night in hut and a friendly  climb on rocky ridge we start from Weissmies, near Saas Fe. And if you really have experience we can go up to Mont Blanc du Tacul and take off from 4248m.

Of course there are many other peaks , on wild but awesome areas...just ask us we'll let you know our hidden jewels

And if you are not a pilot, well we can Tandem !!

You will be roped and use crampons (eventually ice-ice) to walk on glacier and reach the take-off. If you are more experienced we will guide you along a nice climb to reach the summit.

Of course it will also depends on your own pilot and mountaineer skills, it is why its important to contact us ahead. We will see together which peak suits better to you ambition.

 

Philosophy

In high mountain every stolen moment is a diamond that everyone must enjoy : such flights are rare and precious. 

You must be patient, resilient and accept what nature has to offer.

Your guide will optimize the conditions for the climb and the flight but, even if its look ok, if its final decision to takeoff is your. 

No stress, no pressure. Your safety and fun are our main concern.
