GUIDED PARAGLIDING HOLIDAYSFly-Guide paragliding holidays and coaching how it should be. Verbier-Summits is an English-speaking paragliding school located in the heart of the Swiss Alps and we specialize in all types of paragliding holidays and courses. This is not just guiding but also coaching!
FLY IN THE MOUNTAINS WITH OUR GUIDES
Our fly-guide holidays are aimed at qualified pilots who are looking to fly in the Alps under supervision, increase confidence as well as improve general flying skills whilst learning more about flying in the mountains and not having to think about trivial things such as how to get back to launch.
We understand that the mountains can be a very daunting place to fly and so we aim to keep you safe, make sure you get the most out of your flying and eliminate any stress form your holiday.
PARAGLIDE ALONGSIDE OUR COACHES
There are many types and levels of fly-guiding, all of which are suitable depending on what you are looking for. What we do, however, or rather what we do NOT do, is just give you a weather briefing and tell you when and where to fly. Our guiding service is extremely thorough and we have guides who will actually fly with you, constantly supervising and coaching you by radio. This is not just guiding but also coaching.
