Paragliding in Morzine
Known as ‘parapenting’ in France, there are a number of companies in Morzine ski resort that offer flights and lessons. For beginners, a flight involves being harnessed to your instructor then taking off (with or without skis) at the top of the mountain, and then landing back in the Morzine valley. Flights tend to last between 15-30 minutes, and offer the best views in Morzine.
We recommend the Ecole de Parapente des Portes du Soleil. For more information please click here.
