Our different tandem flights are available all year round: Annecy in summer, with its blue skies and its lake which is full of water sports, or Annecy in winter, with its snow-covered mountains nearby and the pine forests dotted with white. Lake Geneva has nothing to envy to Lake Annecy, which is just as beautiful, and is also a perfect spot for a paragliding experience, thanks to its microclimate which offers ideal weather conditions for a flight!
