Paragliding is utilizing a larger piece of fabric – designed to keep you aloft longer so you can soar like an eagle, and cruise the mountain tops, or swoop over features only drones will normally show you. The town of Mieusey near Chamonix lays claim to the birthplace of paragliding, and this is an incredible location to experience flight – including the ultimate, to launch off the top of Mont Blanc. This is the ‘mecca’ of mountain flying, big thermals, glaciers and high peaks – all combine to make the Chamonix valley one of the best flying areas of the world. Other stunning destinations for paragliding (and hang gliding) include: Wengen, Switzerland; Queenstown, New Zealand; Danyang, South Korea; Ölüdeniz, Turkey; Seiser Alm, Italy; Julian Alps, Slovenia; Dune du Pyla, France; or Bazaruto Archipelago, Mozambique.
