We organise specialised activity trips so that you can join like minded people on a trip that is focussed on a particular activity or activities whether it be Snowboarding, Skiing, Speed Riding, Ice climbing, Paragliding, White Water Rafting, Mountain Biking or Hiking. Each trip is tailored to the people coming on the trip and what activities they want to do. We know the best places to go and the best guides and instructors to do the things that you have dreamed about…
Latest adrenaline sport that combines flying with skiing. It is easy to learn and you should have the basics cracked within a few hours. Don’t believe the critics! It is easy, great fun and taught professionally to make it safe. If you already speedride we will take you to some superb places to speedride – the Grand Massif is the best place to speedride in the french Alps.
The school we have teamed up with have both French and English speaking instructors and are at the forefront of promoting this new sport. Gain the FVFL (French Paragliding association) speed riding licence (first association to offer qualification in the world). You need to be able ski red runs well. No previous paragliding/parachuting experience is necessary, but if you have some it helps. See video of speedriding Lac Ger in Grand Massif and you could be doing this within a few days.
During the week, we will do other things besides speedriding if the group wish to, like: Trips to other resorts to ski or speedride, Ice Climbing, Paragliding Mont Blanc, Ice Skating, Skidooing, etc.
