Paragliding Tandem Flight over the Alps in Chamonix
From US$128.38
Overview
It’s not just the skiing and climbing that makes Chamonix a world-class adventure destination: the area is famous for paragliding, too. Take to the air in perfect safety from 3,900 feet (2,100 meters) on a tandem flight with an instructor. Savor spectacular views of the Alps as your pilot manipulates the wing to ride the air currents from Plan Praz or Plan de l’Aiguille (cable-car ticket not included).
What to Expect
Meet your professional pilot either in the morning or in the afternoon in Chamonix. Then, board the minivan that will take you to the cable car (ticket not included), which will lift you up to 2100m/3900ft where the takeoff spot is located. (for discovery flight: Brevent Plan Praz or Plan de l'Aiguille).
You will have a very short walk (around 5 minutes) to reach the takeoff place. Once arrived, your pilot instructor will prepare the paragliding equipment, and set up your harness. Just before takeoff, he will give you a short briefing including important information regarding safety for takeoff and flight.
Now it is time to fly...  Ready ? One ... Two .... Three ... Go go go!
Run few meters and you will be in the air, for a 20 to 30 min ride over the Chamonix valley. Observe the Alps mountain range and its most famous summit: the Mont Blanc.
While in the air, you can ask your pilot to let you fly, to make some acrobatics tricks, or just to enjoy a peaceful flight to gaze at the breathtaking views. 
Do not worry, landing will be very soft. In order to immortalize this unique experience, you can get a video recording of your flight (not included).
The total time for the activity should be around 1h20.

yes I have seen tandem flights a week ago in Cham. It is a different experience as there is no thermals but views equally spectacular in the valley
