Exceptional sites for paragliding near Grasse

The high country of Grasse abounds in natural sites for the practice of
. Indeed the disposition of the first azureen reliefs facing the sea and benefiting from a Mediterranean climate make it a playground favourable for all paragliders and those all year long. Several famous sites although there are a multitude of wild take-offs, stand out. We can fly within 30 minutes from Grasse on at least 5 different sites. We have Gourdon with its small village perched in front of the sea, but also Gréolieres well nested against the mountain of Cheiron which is the highest point of the surroundings, Saint Vallier de Thiey with its two take-offs starting point of many cross-country flights and finally Bleyne and Lachens which are emblematic sites in the practice of the distance flight

Grasse the capital of perfume, CoMBO VISIT AND BIPLACE FLIGHT

To awaken all your senses during your stay in Grasse, there is nothing like a good visit to Fragonard followed by an immersion in nature and in the air with our paragliding packages. At Fragonard it is a real pleasure for the sense of smell but also for the sight. In the workshops you will discover how to make essences and perfumes. Subtle mixtures to make an ideal blend for an alchemy at best according to your tastes. After this small visit in the workshops of the odors, you have appointment on Gréolieres for a super paragliding baptism. Of course, before that we invite you to come and taste the Gréoloise gastronomy. But be careful not to eat too much before your flight! This will be followed by a magnificent experience in the air of Greolieres and the high Grass country. The mountains and their ridges that are outlined in the sky azureen, all your senses are awake, you are in direct contact with the elements. What could be more stimulating than flying, with the wind on your face, your eyes on the landscape and your body listening to the movements of the glider in the air? It is an extension of your body and many pilots neglect the sensations to rely on a small on-board instrument called a vario, it tells you by a beep when you go into the thermal. While it is enough to sharpen your senses and yes it is work but personally I find the flight much more intuitive and enjoyable. Come and live this experience with our state certified instructors, a dynamic and smiling team for your greatest pleasure.
