fly in tandem paragliding in the pre-alps of grasse

Every year, from the beginning of September to the beginning of July, take a two-seater paraglider flight from different sites in the heart of the Préalpes d'Azur Regional Natural Park, within 10 minutes  from Grasse and 1 hour from Nice by car.

Whatever the site of flight, you will discover beautiful landscapes, and enjoy the calm of the surrounding nature, far from the bustle of the Côte d'Azur.

The takeoff is easily made in a few steps from a gentle slope and is accessible to the greatest number, for the rest, trust your instructor and pilot !

In flight and following the sites, a diverse naturel landscape of ridges, valleys,plateaus, gorges, villages, is offered to us, and if we are lucky, we can see and fly in the company of vultures and other birds.

So treat yourself or a loved one by offering an original gift !

The flying sites in the Préalpes d 'Azur Regional Nature Park:

Saint-Vallier de Thiey :

The majority of the time, the flights will be proposed to you in Saint-Vallier de Thiey, a small peaceful village located on the Napoleon road, about 10 mn from Grasse and 1 hour from Nice by car, towards Castellane and Digne-Lès-Bains.

The appointments are made at the paragliding landing, located in front of the Chapelle-Sainte-Luce, a nice place to picnic.

From there, we climb together by car to the Pas de La Faye pass, about 6 km, then a ten-minute walk (on a relatively flat path) will allow us to access the take-off site located on the mountain of Puet.

The altitude difference is about 300 meters and from here you will discover a nice landscape with a view of the Côte d'Azur in the distance : the bay of Cannes and the Lerens Islands, the Esterel Massif, the lake of Saint-Cassien, the bay of Frejus and Saint Raphael.
