Fly, Slide and Meditate
Claire Bernier ha sido campeona del mundo de parapente y campeona de Europa. Ha sobrevolado las cumbres más altas de cada continente, incluido el EVEREST, a 8 848 metros.
These days, she shares her knowledge and experience with thrill-seeking customers.
Building on her successful experience at Val Cenis, Claire has decided to aim higher and set up a paragliding, sledging and yoga business in Val Thorens.
FLY: Take to the air in a tandem paraglider
This season at Val Thorens, Claire is offering take-offs from high above the resort.
Take to the air in a tandem paraglider alongside your instructor. Simply slide along on your skis for a few metres before your feet leave the ground, as you soar like a bird, with no sensation of vertigo.
The flight is ideal for people who are new to paragliding – an educational experience suitable for adults and children alike.
You’ll learn everything there is to know about paragliding. How does it stay in the air? How do you fly a paraglider? You’ll be well-versed enough to take control yourself after take-off, if you wish, under the watchful eye of your instructor. And you’ll come away with an experience that will live long in the memory. You can also purchase souvenir photos and videos of your flight for €20.
