You know paragliding, don’t you? But have you ever experienced it yourself? For those who would answer ‘no’ to the first question: paragliding is an adventure sport of flying paragliders. A paraglider is a lightweight, free-flying glider aircraft without engine with the pilot sitting in a harness suspended below a wing. And LUXURY TRAVEL BUTLER can assure you: it’s great fun to experience this. We have recently spotted a paragliding school in Switzerland offering one-day tasters and more.
A one-day taster is a great introduction to the world of paragliding. During this course you will learn the necessary skills to take-off and land and you will be prepared for your first solo flight in the Swiss Alps!
The fun takes place in the Verbier valley, a stunning piece of nature in Switzerland (Geneva is the nearest airport). Verbier is a village located in south western part of Switzerland.
It is recognized as one of the premiere "off-piste" resorts in the world and it is one of the most uncrowded paragliding sites in the Alps.
Apart from a one-day taster, you can also go for paragliding holidays of 7 days. Or opt for a weekend break. Whether you are a complete beginner wanting to experience your first solo paragliding flight or an advanced pilot looking for a specialised paragliding course or if you are simply looking for a tandem-flight over glaciers, the place to be is Verbier valley!
