A successful first paragliding experience on the French Riviera for Nadia
On vacation in Nice, we went to the heights to visit the hinterland and we took the opportunity to do some canyoning and a first flight in paragliding in the village of Gréolières. Very educational and reassuring, Pierrot, our instructor, allowed us to live a magical experience. Although the takeoff and landing are a bit impressive, you quickly feel confident, the flight is very smooth. A feeling of being high in the middle of nature… Thanks again for this beautiful moment!

Raphaël discovers the ascending flight at Greolières
I am used to outdoor sports and have already made several paragliding flights on different sites in France and abroad. It is quite natural that I wished to live the experience in Greolières, by offering me a Baptism gift on the French Riviera. The result was fantastic! By practicing thermal ascents, we glide, we glide in hang glider, we fly, we descend passing close to the ridges and as a bonus, I had the opportunity to fly the paraglider. It was a pleasure to fly with the paragliders of Ailéments, a crazy experience, thanks to the team!
