"VERBIER IS A TRUE ALPINE EXPERIENCE SUITABLE FOR EVERY TYPE OF PILOT."
– Cross Country Magazine
WHAT AN AMAZING PLACE...
Verbier is an ideal location for every type of pilot. Our wonderful micro-climate and perfect hills make it an ideal place to learn to paraglide. If you want to be sure to get a paragliding license quickly and easily then this is the perfect way to do it. We also specialise in Alpine fly-guiding for qualified paraglider pilots. This is a fly-guide service where a guide will actually fly with you and not only supervise you for safety but also coach you and help you to get the best flying possible during your stay.
THINGS TO DO IN VERBIER
This beautiful Alpine resort is like something out of a fairy tale and even in the height of summer, Verbier is surrounded by towering snow-capped summits.
Verbier-Summits is located in the stunning Verbier valley, deep in the heart of the Swiss Alps.
As well as paragliding there are endless activities to enjoy here, including the mountain biking, horse riding, hiking, climbing, 18-hole Golf course, tennis, mountain trails, quad biking and more...
CLIMATE AND TERRAIN
Verbier enjoys a wonderful micro-climate with hot and beautiful summers. National statistics show 300 flyable days in Verbier per year! There are few places where it is consistently possible to complete a beginner to Club pilot course in two weeks. Because of our exceptional climate combined with high mountains we are able to guarantee this! Oh, and did I mention that this is one of the most un-crowded flying sites in Europe!
A COMPLETE HOLIDAY PACKAGE
Here at Verbier-Summits, we feel that it is important during your holiday that not only the flying is memorable but also your vacation as a whole and that is why we provide beautiful and comfortable accommodation.
During your paragliding vacation here in the Alps, you can relax after a long day of flying in our homely lodgings. We realise the importance of not just good flying but also a beautiful place to stay and a good night’s sleep, after all let’s not forget that you’re on holiday!
HOW TO GET HERE
BY PLANE AND TRAIN
The closest airport to fly to is Geneva. Easy Jet is usually the cheapest flights to Geneva from most European cities and Continental from the States.
The train station is located within the airport and you will need to get the train that goes to Brig, getting off at a town called Martigny. From Martigny, you will need to jump on a small mountain train to a Le Châble, situated at the foot of the mountain below Verbier.
We have located just a 2-minute walk from the Le Châble train station.
DRIVING TO LE CHABLE
If you are driving here or hiring a car from the airport, you will need to take the motorway towards Lausanne.
At Lausanne stay left as the motorway splits in two, heading towards St Bernard.
Just after Martigny, you will need to exit the motorway, (Le Châble and Verbier are signposted from here on).
From Martigny, it’s an easy 15-minute drive to Le Châble and your accommodation at La Ruinette which is just on your left as you enter the village.
THE MOST STUNNING
See the Paragliding Paradise
As with the last time, I learned a huge amount from Mike, Stu and their team of coaches. My girlfriend spent days exploring the mountain biking trails and even had one afternoon flying with us by tandem. The accommodation is lovely and the restaurant attached to the hotel is impressively good. We cannot recommend Verbier Summits enough.
