Paralpinism, which is a combination of paragliding and mountaineering, was invented in the French Alps and is slowly but surely gaining popularity in the rest of the mountain range as well as the country. For the most intrepid adventurers, it is the perfect way to cap off a visit to the summit of Mont Blanc, Aiguille du Midi or a number of iconic peaks within the French Alps. When combined with mountaineering or Via Ferrata, it adds an extra incentive to get to the summit and a new dimension to the views you’ll have one you are up there. While it has not yet gained as much popularity as it has in the Alps, people are taking what they’ve learned from this mountain range and heading west to the French Pyrenees to try it out there as well. Be one of the first adventurers to get ahead of the curve and try it out there as well
