‘VERBIER…WHAT AN AMAZING PLACE!’

                                                                                                                                                                                      Bear Grylls.  

Verbier is an ideal location for every type of pilot. Our wonderful micro-climate and perfect combination of hills and mountains make it an ideal place to learn to paraglide. If you want to be sure to get a paragliding license quickly and easily, this is one of the most perfect places on earth to do it. As well as the most ideal place for beginners to learn and rapidly progress it is also the most incredible playground for more advanced pilots who are looking to broaden their horizons and learn to improve their thermal and XC flying. Verbier has everything to offer every type of pilot.

Equally, if you are looking to bring someone with you who is not here to paraglide, you can rest assured that they will have a wonderful time exploring one the most beautiful valleys in the alps whilst here in the world class mountain resort of Verbier.  

THINGS TO DO IN VERBIER

This beautiful Alpine resort is like something out of a fairy tale and even in the height of summer, Verbier is surrounded by towering snow-capped peaks. Verbier-Summits is located in the stunning Verbier valley, deep in the heart of the Swiss Alps.

As well as paragliding, there are endless activities to enjoy here, including  mountain biking, horse riding, hiking, climbing, 18-hole Golf course, tennis, mountain trails, quad biking and more…

CLIMATE AND TERRAIN

Verbier is blessed with a unique micro-climate making it amongst the best flying locations in the world. Our valley has over 300 flyable days a year and is protected by most prevailing winds due to its unique orientation with its protective high mountains both to the North and South. 

A COMPLETE HOLIDAY PACKAGE

Here at Verbier-Summits, we feel that it is important during your holiday that not only the flying is memorable but also your holiday as a whole and that is why we provide beautiful and comfortable accommodation.

During your paragliding holiday here in the Alps, you can relax after a long day of flying in our cosy chalets and apartments. We realise the importance of not just good flying but also a beautiful place to stay and a good night’s sleep, after all let’s not forget that you’re on holiday!

HOW TO GET HERE

The closest airport to fly to is Geneva. Easy Jet is usually the cheapest flights to Geneva from most European cities and Continental from the States. The train station is located within the airport and you will need to get the train that goes to Brig, getting off at a town called Martigny. From Martigny, you will need to jump on a small mountain train to a Le Châble, situated at the foot of the mountain below Verbier. We have located just a 2-minute walk from the Le Châble train station.

DRIVING TO LE CHABLE

If you are driving here or hiring a car from the airport, you will need to take the motorway towards Lausanne. At Lausanne stay left as the motorway splits in two, heading towards St Bernard. Just after Martigny, you will need to exit the motorway, (Le Châble and Verbier are signposted from here on). From Martigny, it’s an easy 15-minute drive to Le Châble and your accommodation at La Ruinette which is just on your left as you enter the village.
