Half-day Climb and Paraglide in Salève, near Geneva
Join Yannick, an IFMGA-certified guide, on this beginner friendly climb of Salève. After taking in the view from the summit, the adventure continues with a breathtaking paraglide decent (if the conditions allow)!
Join me for incredible panoramic views during this exciting half-day adventure, as we enjoy an easy climb up Salève and then, if conditions allow, a spectacular paraglide descent of the mountain!
Nicknamed “the balcony of Geneva,” Salève is a popular destination located in France, but accessible from the Swiss metropolis. Those who reach the summit are rewarded with incredible views over the surrounding landscape, including a lovely bird’s eye of the city itself. If the day is clear enough, the view extends all the way to the snow capped peaks of Mont Blanc! Salève is a popular destination for those looking to escape the hustle and bustle of the city for a day and instead take in the beautiful views and fresh air of the surrounding countryside.
During this program, I will guide you as we ascend the beginner friendly mountain of Salève, which includes an easy rock climb (max grade of IV). We will celebrate at the top as we marvel at the incredible vista. Then, if conditions are appropriate, we will unfold the tandem paraglide and, together, descend the mountain by air. We will soar over the region, potentially flying through thermals or gliding our way to a leisurely descent. If we’re especially lucky with just the right conditions, it is possible to fly all the way to the French town of Annecy! No previous experience climbing or paragliding is required to participate in this trip.
Paralpinism, like all air sports, is very dependent on weather. So if you like to fly and ski, hike or climb you must be ready to change your target at the last minute. I can´t guarantee that we’ll be able to fly but I promise to do my best to make it happen and have a beautiful and safe journey.
This is how it works :
a) We set a date, a mountain range and what you like to do!
b) Three days before the set date we make a first review of the weather and check if it will be possible. If it is, we continue with our project. If it’s not, we change the destination (as close as possible).
c) On the night before the trip, we organize the last few details
d) We go for it and do our best!
Book this beginner friendly half-day paralpinism trip now and it will be a memorable day of adventure and beautiful views, as we climb the mountain of Salève and take to the air!
