Your First Paragliding Experience – Taster days

If you would like to learn to paraglide, but only have a few days, then you can start with one of our paragliding experience days, or even a two or three day taster course. This is one of the best things you could do during your stay in Verbier.

One day course

During the one day paragliding course you will learn the basic skills required to take-off and land followed at the end of the day by a tandem flight, where you can take the controls and learn the basics of controlling the glider in the air whilst in the safety of flying with a qualified FSVL tandem pilot.

Two and three day courses

Our two and three day paragliding courses will build on the skills that you have learnt during the first day but now with the objective of flying as much as possible. By the end of the second day you can expect to be ready for your first solo flight whilst guided over the radio by an instructor. First solo flights are usually done on the morning of the third day.

Students start to fly solo when we consider them to be ready and this can vary from student to student. You will need to book a minimum of a 3 day course to be sure to be ready for solo flights.

Anyone from the age of 14yrs or over can take part in these beginner paragliding courses and begin to discover the wonderful world of flying.

You can take-part in this paragliding course entirely in English with our English speaking team.
