Paragliding information

Lonely Planet review

Come summer, the sky above Chamonix is dotted with paragliders wheeling down from the heights. Tandem flights from Planpraz (2000m) cost €100 per person (€225 from the Aiguille du Midi). Paragliding schools include Summits and AirSports Chamonix ; contact them ahead for details on meeting points.
