Tandem flight underneath Mont Blanc. Fly over the Bossons Glacier!

The Plan de l'Aiguille tandem paragliding flight is a unique experience in the world.

Take off is from the Aiguille du Midi mid station.

The vertiginous face of the Aiguille du Midi, the perspective over the Bossons Glacier and under the largest peaks of the massif is a view worthy of the biggest cinema screen!

Your state-certified and highly experienced paraglider pilot will share his passion with you in complete safety.
After a few steps on a gently sloping take off to inflate the wing, you will be comfortably seated in the air hovering like an eagle.

The icing on the cake: flying over the immense seracs of the Bossons Glacier just a few metres below your feet.

The duration of the flight is weather dependant with aerological conditions, the time of the flight and the well-being of the passenger in the air. Estimate flight time between 15 and 30mins in the air.

The whole activity will take 1 hour, between meeting and the landing.
First flight of the day is at 11am.

The departure point of the Aiguille du Midi cable car is located in the centre of Chamonix and our reservation shop Skiset & Wing over Chamonix is located on the esplanade of the cable car station.

Please purchase your lift ticket before meeting the pilot (one-way to Plan de l'Aiguille or Mont Blanc Unlimited pass if you wish to use other lifts the same day).
