Description - What to expect

Come in Verbier and meet Mike and Stu, the twin brothers well known for their paragliding stunts. They have been welcoming guests from all over the world for over 15 years now helping them to discover the beauty of flying over the Alps. The flying center is certified and the brothers have 14,000 flying hours between them.

They will organize for a drop off via helicopter to the summit of the Petit Combin at an altitude of almost 3,800 m. Even in the middle of summer, you could be dropped off at snow-covered peaks in order to enjoy an unforgettable flight over the Alps.

Sometimes you can ridge soar the impressive North face, before gliding down over the Corbassiere glacier, looking down into the deep blue crevasses as you fly overhead. From this altitude, even a top-bottom sled ride can take over an hour. The goal is to discover Verbier and Valais from a bird’s eye view at the highest altitudes enjoying a flight of about 50 to 60 minutes above the glaciers.
