LEARN TO PARAGLIDE IN FRANCE
Beginner to Pilot Courses
Paragliding holidays to France run from May to October and for all round flying and stunning scenery France is right at the top. We have been running Paragliding holidays in France and Europe since 1992 and over the years we have built up a good knowledge of local French sites and flying conditions in both the Alps and Pyrenees mountains. Paragliders have become very portable, weighing just a few kilos, ideal for taking on holiday to France.
Best Sites in Europe
The paragliding sites we use in France are some of the best in Europe where world class competitions are held. Ranging from small training slopes to 4500' mountains. For many, this is their first big flight, our favourite site is 3500', with large easy take off, a lovely two and a half mile glide to a massive landing field taking about fifteen minutes, longer if there are any thermals on the way down. For the more experienced pilot we use a 3500' site easy to fly with great cross-country potential.
Family and Friends there's lots to do
We are on holiday to Paraglide but there are also stacks of exciting things to do such as white water rafting which is great fun. Another way to see this spectacular scenery, is take a bike to the top of the mountain and cycle down through forest tracks, picturesque villages and past lakes stopping for drinks or lunch and back in time for tea. There is also Surfing at the famous Biarritz beaches, Kayaking, horse riding, climbing, walking and relaxing. We normally eat out at one of the many restaurants or BBQ at our chalet.
Our modern chalet sleeps 9 and is set in 1 acre with beautiful views to the Pyrenees mountains plus all the usual facilities, The chalet is situated so we can reach as many sites as possible depending on the wind direction. A large picturesque town is 10 minutes drive, with bakers, shops, supermarkets, bars, and restaurants.
Holidays to France are run from May to October.
