  • 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.

Description

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.

Plus de temps doit être consacré à la familiarisation de l'équipement qu'on portait dans nos sacs, pelle, sonde. Quoi faire si le guide est emporté par une avalanche, une deuxième radio devrait être porté par un des clients, comment utiliser les émetteurs de détresse lors d'une recherche.

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 !!!

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,

Hi Gilbert, I wanted to drop you and Cédric a thank you note. You have had a crazy patience with all my complicated wishes and you really helped making it happen. I really appreciated you help and it was a super great experience, something I will not forget. We felt extremely comfortable with your guidance and hopefully there will be a chance to go on another tour in the future. I am now officially addicted to the deep snow experience J. If you need a client statement from you on your website or anything, just let me know. Happy to do so. I can also post something on social media…. Cheers and thanks again!
