Soar over the wild and authentic landscapes of the Bauges mountain range during a paragliding tandem flight.

Easy Access from Annecy, Chambéry/Aix-les-Bains and Albertville, but away from the crowds

Several launch sites are available for paragliding tandem flights within the Bauges mountain range. Two are easily accessible by road: the Semnoz, and a brand new launch at the Margériaz. Many more are only reachable by foot, making them perfect destinations for hike-and-fly adventures.

We select the launch site based on the weather forecast in order to have the best flying conditions on the day of your tandem flight. 

We will provide you with an approximate location a few days before your flight, but the final decision and the instructions to meet us there will be sent the night before. Thank you for your understanding!

saut parapente semnoz


Located just 10 km from Annecy and 20 km from Aix-les-Bains, the Semnoz is our favorite launch site. It is the most easily accessible ski resort for families living in Annecy. Its 360° panorama of Mont Blanc, the Bauges mountains and the Albanais plain make it a prime location for a paragliding tandem flight in Haute-Savoie.

You will launch from the west side of the Semnoz, giving you a breathtaking view of the Chéran plain during your flight.  It’s the perfect place for calm morning flights as you will glide down nearly 1000 meters. It’s also an exceptional site to admire the beautiful colors just before sunset.

How to reach the Semnoz launch site?

The large car park at the top of the resort, which is not crowded in the summer, allows us to meet at the top of the mountain. You will find the itinerary by clicking “Meet us at launch” under the map below. Take the trail that starts at the very end of the car park; it will lead you to the launch site within a few minutes. If necessary, we will take you back to the top of the mountain with our shuttle after the flight.

Important : Please park your car in the resort’s car park (near the toboggan run) since the last parking lot at the end is reserved for the restaurant’s customers.

You can also get to the Semnoz launch by bus. Take the S4 from Annecy, S5 from the west bank of the Annecy lake (Sévrier) or S6 from the Alby-sur-Chéran area. These buses are free from July 1st to August 31st, or 1.50€ on weekends and public holidays in June and September. See the schedules here.

What to do before or after a paragliding tandem flight at the Semnoz?

Before or after your flight, we suggest taking the time to hike to the summit of the Semnoz. Several marked itineraries allow you to explore the mountain top while admiring the 360-degree view around you. This is a great opportunity to visit the alpine pastures at the summit, as well as the alpine garden.

A zoo, summer toboggans, a tree climbing course, and activities such as all-terrain scooters and mini-karts are also available at the Semnoz. You will find all the information on the Semnoz resort website.

Hike & Fly in the Bauges mountains

The Bauges mountain range is an ideal place for hike & fly as most launch sites are only accessible by foot.

This means we hike to a summit, take-off from there, and fly back down to the valley. This is possible from the Trélod, the Colombier, the Croix d’Allant, the Mont de la Coche and the Mont Pelat, among others.

Such an experience is possible as part of a hike & fly tandem flight.

The Bauges mountains: A key role in cross-country paragliding

The Bauges mountain range is a popular route amongst cross-country pilots. With its prominent ridges aligned north to south, it makes it easy to connect the Chartreuse mountains to the Aravis mountains in flight when thermal conditions are generous. Flights of several hundred kilometers are possible in spring and summer.

However, pilots must know and respect the air space of the Bauges National Hunting and Wildlife Reserve during these flights. The map of areas where launching and flying is permitted within 300 m of the ground can be found  here; otherwise, any flight within the area indicated in brown must be at least 300 m above the ground.
