Paragliding over Chamonix
WOW!!! DOUBLE WOW!!!! If you want an experience like no other then take a tandem paragliding flight. And yes, it's a break from wildlife photography, but maybe next time we'll get to fly with some birds (on occasion an eagle does drift by!!).
The entire flight was AMAZING. The video (GoPro on a selfie stick) is just a glimpse of how amazing the flight was, but it doesn't even get close to what the experience feels like. Words simply don't do the experience justice, but that hasn't stopped me from talking about it for days!!!
I can't recommend Wing over Chamonix enough. Everything was highly professional, smoothly executed, and just damn fun. Put this on your "must do" list and take a flight with Olivier - it will take your breath taken away! Oh, and stump up the extra for an XXL flight (45 minutes - 1 hour, weather depending) - worth every penny/cent!
For further information, contact Olivier Laugero at Wing over Chamonix.
Where: Chamonix (1 hour drive from Geneva airport)

Parking: there's a large car park just before you enter Chamonix, which is only a 5 minute walk from the start of the cable car.
