Up, up and away
Why not add a new thrill to your ski holiday this winter and experience the Alps from the air? Perhaps you’d like to try speed riding – taking off on skis with a small glider above. It’s a crazy mix of sliding on the snow and flying through the air that is extremely good fun.
Alternatively a tandem paragliding flight might be just your thing – it’s an exciting yet peaceful way to see the mountains with professional, experienced pilots. Trips range from 15 to 30 minutes long and are suitable for both skiers and non-skiers.
Or why not discover the mountains with a hot air balloon trip – setting out from Les Carroz and floating across the mountain range you may observe chamois (mountain antelope), bouquetin (Alpine ibex), mouflon (wild mountain sheep) or the majestic golden eagle.
On the other hand maybe you’d like to take a helicopter ride and soar like an eagle up to the stunning 4807m peak of Mont Blanc, Western Europe’s highest mountain. Due to the high altitude flights are not recommended for children under 7 years old.
