Frequently Asked Questions K2 Paragliding

 

Where does the takeoff take place?

We will meet you on the day of your jump at the K2 Paragliding store. We climb to the Col de la Forclaz at an altitude of 1250 m with our K2 paragliding mini bus. The Col de la Forclaz spot is known throughout the world. There is an exceptional view of Lake Annecy and the Alps in the background.


How long does the flight last in the air?

The paragliding flight varies from 10 minutes to 1 hour 15 minutes. It all depends on the formula you choose. Discover all our Tandem flights options


How to dress for the flight?

Dress as if you were going for a walk in the mountains: a pair of comfortable closed shoes (sneakers are good), a windbreaker and sunglasses. Afterwards you can choose to wear shorts and a t-shirt or pants and a sweater depending on the season.


Does an introduction to paragliding make you dizzy?

Do not confuse vertigo and fear of heights. Vertigo is mechanical, it's your brain registering two different pieces of information (my feet are on the ground but I see emptiness). However, when you fly, you are above the void and your feet do not touch the ground, so no risk! The fear of heights is psychological. You just have to confront it and take the plunge to overcome it!


What age is recommended for tandem paragliding?

There is no age limit, but it is best to be 4 or 5 years old to fully enjoy it. Find out more and remove all your preconceptions
