Description

One of the largest and most famous mountains in the Swiss Alps, the Grand Combin peak (4,314m) is a sight to behold. However, on this incredible trip, you will get to do so much more than just view this mountain. On this trip, you will get to take a scenic helicopter flight to a specific part of it. And after that, you will get to paraglide down!

For 40 to 100 minutes, you will get to enjoy the unmatched thrill that comes with riding in a helicopter and paragliding. And when you accompany that with the beauty of the fantastic Grand Combin peak, you are in for an adventure you will never forget.

Because it only takes a few hours, this trip can be the perfect addition to your vacation in the Alps. Furthermore, if you are not experienced enough to paraglide on your own, there is also the option to enjoy this trip in a tandem flight.

Filled with ice capped peaks, beautiful valleys and enormous glaciers, the Swiss Alps are a paradise for those who enjoy nature at its most picturesque. And on this trip, you will get to see them  from the same vantage point as a majestic bird.

To experience the thrill of this trip, all you have to do is send me a request. I look forward to guiding you.

You can also enjoy another version of this trip that involves a flight from the Pigne d’Arolla peak.

Cher Gilbert, Juste un petit mot pour vous remercier au nom de mon fils Axel pour cette merveilleuse journée que vous lui avez fait passer dans nos belles montagnes valaisannes. En plus avec un groupe sympathique, c’est une journée qui restera gravé dans sa mémoire avant qu’il ne reparte hier soir pour reprendre le cours de ses études. En vous réitérant mes remerciements, Meilleures salutations,

Some times u meet people you call "mentors" in your work, or in your life. Very proud of the book of my friend and free-ride instructor for the last 8 years! In the book marked the steepest couloir I ever ride in my life (couloir d'Arpette). Thank you Gilbert

Bonjour Anne-Françoise, La sortie de samedi dernier m’a entièrement ravi : excellente ambiance, baptême de l’air paisible, parcours de toute beauté sous l’œil attentif et encourageant de Peter, bref un grand moment de ski, en prime sous un ciel parfaitement dégagé ! Bravo pour l’organisation, en ce compris la navette de retour et la livraison sur place des packs de sécurité. Merci pour tout et….à la prochaine !!!
