Courmayeur and the Aosta Valley provides a perfect backdrop to go paragliding - if you have never tried it before you couldnt have chosen a better place to try it for the first time. You dont need a license as you will have a qualified pilot with you (tandem paragliding) and instead you can savour the moment and enjoy the views.
There is no feeling of 'dropping' instead it's a feeling of a gentle lift which has you airborne and floating above the valley. Anyone from 4 yrs old with minimum weight of 20kg (max 110kgs) can do it – No training or physical fitness is required as long as you can run for approximately 10m! The flight itself lasts about 20mins.
To protect you against the sun/wind/cold make sure you are warmly dressed and wear trainers. Take your camera to capture the breathtaking scenery and magnificent views!
Try and arrange to do it together with family and/or friends. As this activity is subject to weather permitting it’s advised to book a few days prior to your departure.
Take a tandem flight with a qualified pilot or lessons with a paragliding school to learn the secrets and techniques of the magic of 'free flight'.
