Annecy: a superb location for your first paragliding flight

Discover one of France's most beautiful lakes on a unique paragliding flight over the Massif des Bauges and the Aravis mountain range. You'll be able to admire the lake's changing colors depending on the weather. The Haute-Savoie region and its mountains overlooking the lake will blow your mind during this flight.
