Child Flight Initiation. Discover our paragliding baptism specially designed for children from 3 to 14 years old. We choose suitable aerological conditions for the pleasure of the youngest. After a smooth takeoff, children marvel at the sensation of flying like a bird. For this flight, our pilot stays near the village of Saint Vincent-Les-Forts to allow parents to enjoy a magical moment watching their children fly over the landscape. We offer two landing options: either right next to the take-off site when conditions permit (95% of cases), or on the shores of the lake where a vehicle picks up passengers. Come and live an unforgettable family experience in the Southern Alps

The Panoramic Child Flight is aimed at all young adventurers wishing to discover paragliding in its most beautiful dimension: thermal flight. During this first flight, the pilot will evolve above the village of Saint Vincent les Forts, analyzing each movement of air in order to exploit the different types of lift. The latter, when Mother Nature is generous, allow us to gain altitude and increase our scope of evolution. Moving above the Serre-Ponçon lake, with its turquoise and green reflections, an exceptional view is offered to us of the Hautes Alpes and Haute Provence. Dominated by the majestic mountains of Dormillouse and Grand Morgon, it is a landscape of rare beauty that awaits us.

The Vol Montclar-le-lac lac, is a truly enchanting journey, offering a variety of sumptuous landscapes, ranging from mountain ranges as far as the eye can see to the majestic lake. This experience is a true delight for lovers of beautiful landscapes, lasting approximately 20 minutes.

This morning flight starts at an altitude of 2000 meters, after a chairlift ride to the heights of the Blanche Valley. It takes you first to Saint-Vincent-les-Forts, a perched village guarding the entrance to the Ubaye valley, flying over a magnificent larch forest. Then, you can enjoy a breathtaking view of the turquoise waters of the Serre-Ponçon lake before landing on the banks of the lake, 1,200 meters downstream from the starting point. A driver will then take you back to your vehicle.

This paragliding flight offers a unique experience to discover the landscapes of the region in a different and unforgettable way.
