Fly-Guide and paragliding holidays

Our fly-guide holidays combine guiding and coaching. Our guides will accompany you on every flight to ensure you get the best conditions and develop your skills.

We also offer heli-paragliding trips. Even in the height of summer you can be dropped onto a white summit by helicopter, and enjoy the flight of your life paragliding over glaciers and crevasses.

About Us

We have been flying for more than 20 years and a dream came true for us when created our own paragliding school in 2003.

Our founding philosophy for the Verbier-Summits paragliding school was to combine the safest teaching practices in the world with a stunning environment and a great team of instructors. We believe this has helped us create the best place to learn to paraglide.
