Paragliding & hang gliding
Looking for an adrenaline rush? Enjoy a bird’s-eye view of Valais from a paraglider or hang glider. In winter and summer alike, drink in the views over the sea of Alpine peaks, the mighty glaciers, endless forests and narrow valleys. It goes without saying that you can combine your day of skiing or hiking with a flight. Take off in tandem with experienced, specially trained pilots and glide through the skies at dizzying heights. Make your dream of flying come true and see Valais like you’ve never seen it before.
The Val d’Anniviers has a hang-gliding site offering a wide variety of flights throughout the year. Whether purely for pleasure or with sport in mind. Less experienced pilots will benefit from the 1800 m drop from the Crêt-du-Midi (2336 m), which gives one of the longest unpowered flights in the Alps. Seasoned pilots will love the strong thermals of the Val d’Anniviers and the Val d’Hérens that often give lift up to an altitude in excess of 4000 m.
