We worried that Caroline and Lionel were not arriving as we waited at the bottom of the hill. As soon as we asked another paraglider, he assured us, we were with the best, and they would be along shortly! And they were. Professional, fun, and totally relaxed on the mountain. The whole experience for all four of us was perfect.... More

I loved getting to know Caroline and Lionel...what a fun loving, adventurous couple who turned their passion into a business! Gliding was such a peaceful experience, it was unlike anything I have ever done before. The thrill-seeker in me had to ask for flips/twists and she was great with those too :) Overall a good balance of peaceful gliding and... More

Caroline and Lionel (our pilots) were great and the ride was spectacular. What better location than the Chamonix valley for our first paragliding experience? Highly recommend the experience and these guides to make it hapen.

Definitely the highlight of our trip, the view of Chamonix from the top of the snowy mountains is unbeatable. We had to reschedule our session due to the sudden closing of one of the cable car stations, but Caroline and Lionel was very responsible and informed us beforehand to reschedule to another time. Caroline and Lionel was so attentive throughout... More

An unforgettable experience flying over the valley of Chamonix. Lionel & Caroline were pros throughout. We booked a couple flight & depending on weather conditions you may have to wait your turn but it's worth the wait once your up up and away.....

Then at 12:00 PM, they call again asking if we can do it now. Unfortunately, we about 15 minutes from the Meeting Point. They said they are waiting for us.... More

We went up the lift and were in the air within minutes of arriving at the takeoff area. I felt very safe, and paragliding isn't as hard as I thought. Lionel and Caroline are a power couple with great stories, and they're very sensitive to your comfort level. Safe, easy, thrilling ride. 10/10 would do again!

This was a truly amazing experience with Absolute Chamonix - very professional, friendly and made the whole experience relaxing. Flying without wings! Recommended for all ages, Lionel & Caroline are fantastic at what they do ("nice office!" said Lio as we were 2,000 meters up, catching the thermals). Take the leap with these guys! Brendan, Ireland

We decided to try this activity as one of us had an ankle injury so snowboarding was a big no. The Absolute Chamonix Paragliding office was at the end of the road where we were staying so we popped in and met Caroline (one of the owners). She was great and explained to us the best day to fly given... More
