Hike and Fly is a well-known discipline for paragliders who love adenture mountain. In order to make you discover this facet of free flight, Ailéments bring you on the crests of the Cheiron. We will take the GR4 north face from Gréolières des neiges station for 45 minutes to arrive progressively on the south face takeoff . It is a moment of contemplation and intimate sharing between you and nature, an unique experience that will make you a privileged actor of this beautiful adventure. After taking off from the beautiful ochre cliffs overlooking Gréolières we will fly along the walls and ridges of the Cheiron to finally fly over the village. Depending on the weather conditions and your desires, we will be able to take advantage of the ascents or simply let ourselves slide into a contemplative flight before landing. Of course we ask you to be physically comfortable for the hiking and for the take-off and landing part.
