Hang-gliding or paragliding ?
Also called a deltaplane, a hang-glider is a non-motorized aircraft for a true free flight experience.
Hang-gliding uses the hot air flows, known as thermals, to go up in the air the same way paragliding does. But contrary to a paraglider with a flexible structure, a hang-glider is made of a rigid frame carrying the wing and harness attached to it.
Bigger and heavier, a hang-glider also flies faster and smoother then a paraglider.
Haute Savoie, the ideal place to try out hang-gliding
There’s no better way to take in new landscapes than in the air. That’s why a hang-gliding tandem flight over Lake Annecy and its breathtaking surroundings is an incredible experience !
Comfortably installed in the harness, your wing in the back, gliding with the wind…you’ll get to fly the same way eagles do and admire the mountains, green landscapes and clear blue Lake Annecy.
And since there’s no engine, nothing will disturb this peaceful moment !
Anxious or adventurous, hang-gliding’s for everyone
When flying in the air, there’s no contact whatsoever with the ground… And that’s why it is not possible to get afraid of heights! To cause this fear, the body needs a solid point to refer too and that’s not the case when flying. So no more excuses !
Even the youngest ones, from 4 years old, can do their hang-gliding tandem flight so even they will have some unforgettable memories !
And don’t forget to tell your pilot if you’re seeking for adrenaline : he will be pleased to impress you with some wing-overs !
