Col du Sapenay

North of Bourget Lake, just 15 km from Aix-les-Bains, we will meet at the Chindrieux landing before driving you in our shuttle to the Sapenay Pass. After walking just a few minutes, we will reach a beautiful lookout perched above Bourget Lake at an altitude of 890m. This is the launch site for paragliders and hang gliders where we will take off from.

This launch site is one of the oldest paragliding sites in France and it offers exceptional air conditions thanks to the presence of Bourget Lake.

Get ready to fly over the Rhône valley as well as the majestic cliffs overlooking Bourget Lake. As we leave the launch and glide into the sky, your eyes will be dazzled by the turquoise color of Lake Bourget on your left, the largest natural lake in France. It is this color that has earned Aix-les-Bains the nickname of the Riviera of the Alps. The lake stretches all the way to Chambéry for 18 km and is bordered by the iconic Dent du Chat on its west bank. On you right, you will have exceptional views of the Chautagne region, with the Grand Colombier and the Bugey area, and further away, the Jura. In clear weather, we can often see the mountains near Lyon. And if we can get a little altitude, Mont Blanc can be seen in the distance between the peaks of the Bauges and the Aravis ranges.

Your paragliding tandem flight from the Sapenay Pass will give you nothing less than a remarkable panorama over the landscapes of Savoie!

During your paragliding tandem flight, we will fly south over the cliffs leading to the Sire launch and the Croix du Nivolet. You will admire the city of Aix-les-Bains and the turquoise color of Bourget Lake, with the iconic Dent du Chat in the background. Further south, you will see the landscapes of the Granier, the Chartreuse, and the Belledonne mountains. If we can gain a little altitude, you will see the Bauges, including the majestic silhouette of the Colombier and the cliffs of the Margériaz.

The different landings:

From the Revard launch, we have the choice between two different landings:

The Topet-AIXAM landing:  It is located in Mouxy, at an altitude of 430 meters, which allows us to glide down 1000 meters! We use this landing mainly in winter or in the morning when thermal updrafts are not yet present, which allows us for a long flight despite calm air conditions.

It is also an ideal place for our students who are learning to fly on their own. With its 400 meters length and very few obstacles, it is the perfect place to practice ground handling.

The Trévignin landing : At an altitude of 750 meters, this is our favorite landing site for tandem flights from the Revard in the afternoon. It is equipped with a large free car park, which makes it a great location for us to meet before your flight.

Although it is quite technical for beginners due to the changing breezes and its slight slope, it is the ideal starting point for hikers who want to get to the Revard launch by foot.

Where to meet us for your paragliding tandem flight at the Revard?

When is the best time to go paragliding over Bourget Lake?

All year round!

Paragliding is an activity that can be done all year round, each season bringing its unique landscapes and flying conditions:

In winter, the mountains around Bourget Lake are often covered in snow. Between moments of snow, rain or wind, anticyclones often bring periods of calm weather with clear blue sky. This allows us to take off on skis when the launch site is covered in snow, which is always an exhilarating sensation! As the thermal updrafts aren’t present yet, the flight is usually a long top-to-bottom glide, ideal for a discovery flight.

In spring, the sun rises on the horizon and heats the ground, creating the strong temperature contrasts needed for thermal updrafts. This is the season of long distance flights for cross-country enthusiasts. Forests turn to green and landscapes display the beauty of nature’s renewal. This is the ideal time to try our Majestic flight !

In summer, the sun is at its peak and the air conditions normalize. Thermal updrafts become more even and allow us to make long flights in a more predictable way. We can fly all day long, as long as thunderstorms don’t appear in the evening. This is the ideal time for Thermal and Prestige flights!

In autumn, sunshine decreases and air conditions become calmer. However, with climate change, beautiful weather often lingers all the way to October, making long flights possible. The landscapes and their yellow-orange hues contrast with the deep blue of Bourget Lake. This is the ideal time for those who want to enjoy the region at a calmer moment, outside of school holidays.
