Our paragliding initiation flight is perfect for those looking to have a smooth first flight experience, with limited duration and altitude. You will be accompanied by a state-certified instructor who will guide you throughout the flight. After take-off, you will fly over the village of Saint Vincent les Forts and its historical monuments, such as its fort and its Vauban tower, before exploring the magnificent landscapes of the Ubaye valley of the Serre-Ponçon lake. The updrafts will gently carry you along the relief, giving you breathtaking views from the sky. In general, you will have the chance to land right next to the take-off site, but if the conditions do not allow it, you can land on the shores of the lake, where we will pick you up.
