Paragliding

Enjoy a unique experience in the skies of Pays-d’Enhaut !

While Pays-d'Enhaut is known far and wide for its International Balloon Festival, the region lends itself extremely well to another aerial sport: paragliding. Tandem flights and introductory days are available at several schools where experienced pilots will teach you and give you the thrill of a lifetime. No qualifications are required to practice this sport and there are no age limits. There is only one condition, you must want to fly like a bird! A short run before take-off from sites such as Videmanette and Rodomont in Rougemont, and away you go. When paragliding, your feet don’t touch the ground, and nor does anything else for that matter so you’ll need a good head for heights. Sat in your seat, you will feel almost as comfortable as in your own living room.

A marvellous experience

Once in the air you can forget about the hassles of everyday life. You have just become an eagle. Accompanied by your instructor, who will take care of everything, you will play in thermal currents to move, climb and descend in complete calm. During the flight you will have plenty of time to enjoy the 360-degree view of the surrounding mountains such as the Vanils chain, the Prealps and the mountains of Bern. With a little luck you will also spot some chamois and ibex. The landing is handled by your pilot and will be as gentle as possible. Paragliding is the ideal leisure pursuit to escape the hustle and bustle of life, if only for a few minutes. A welcome break in a world turning faster and faster each day. This activity is available all year round.
