Flying in the air


The Parapente Ascendance package is for those who want to get high and experience pure sensations without too many thrills !

This is not just another walk


You will enjoy a 20 to 30 minute tandem flight over the mountains. It takes about an hour and a half to get to the shop, fly and return to the shop. You will take advantage of the thermal lift to gain altitude and make beautiful turns in complete safety. You may even get the chance to see the Mont Blanc glacier and touch the clouds !

Thermal lift for an exceptional view

Thermal lift is a vertical movement of air (buoyancy) caused by the temperature difference between the sun-warmed ground and a cooler patch of air. This causes a bubble of rising  wind which the paraglider will play with to gain altitude.

This is a unique experience for you during your Ascension paragliding flight as you gain height and get a little adrenaline rush. Your instructor can take you up above the surrounding peaks and allow you to observe the magnificent scenery. K2 Paragliding instructors are fully conversant with thermals and updrafts as part of the basics of paragliding.

As you gain altitude, you will be able to enjoy a unique panorama over Lake Annecy. You will be able to discover or recognize the most beautiful summits of the Alps and the inevitable Mont Blanc glacier. In the valley, you will fly over the Annecy basin and the typical Savoyard villages of Talloires and Menthon Saint Bernard. You will appreciate the nature reserves around Annecy from a perspective you have never seen before.
