Highlights

 
  • Enjoy a paragliding trip from the Pigne d'Arolla mountain in the Swiss Alps.

  • Also enjoy a fun helicopter ride that will grant you amazing views.

  • Spend some time in the lovely town of Verbier.

 

A trip that suits the most adventurous, this heli paragliding adventure takes place on the Pigne d’Arolla mountain (3,796m) in the Swiss Alps.

This unforgettable trip lasts from 40 to 100 minutes, and involves a helicopter ride, paragliding and a gorgeous peak. To put that into perspective, you will get to experience all of that in less time than it takes to finish watching a typical movie!

From Verbier, you will enjoy an amazing helicopter ride that will enable you to see the glorious peaks of the Alps. After that, you will reach the Pigne D’Arolla mountain. This peak is definitely one of the finest mountains in the incredible mountain range. And on this trip you will get to see it up close. Afterwards, you will then get to get into a paraglide from the peak. Thus enabling you to get even more spectacular views of the peaks, valley and glaciers spread throughout the Alps.

There is so much to do and see in the Swiss Alps. And people usually spend days, even weeks, trying to do and see it all. And while you won’t necessarily get to do it all in this short trip, you will certainly get to see more than most.

So send me a request and come to Verbier. I look forward to providing you with a safe, thrilling, spectacular adventure.

I also offer a tandem paragliding trip in Verbier as well.

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 !!!
