/ Jumping off mountains in Cham...
I quite fancy the idea of finishing my Alps trip this summer with a tandem paraglide decent somewhere around Chamonix so I can take some less typical photos. Does anyone have any experience of local companies that do this sort of thing/ want to take me on a flight!?
I did a tandem flight from Pran Plaz last year with Fly Chamonix. I emailed a few companies last minute whilst in Cham, and these guys worked out best for me. Was good fun, professionally run, Sean was a nice bloke and let me do a bit of steering once we were flying. I took photos but he had a go-pro too so got some photos from that. Well worth doing, I'd really like to take it up one day
F*ck me!!! That's from the top of ex-libris!
We arranged one by asking the manger in zero g bike shop on Avenue Ravanel le Rouge. He just gave us a mobile number of a guy called zaytoon who came with some mates and met us a the bottom of le praz. Missed out the middle man and was an amazing flight.
