The best paragliding spots near Annecy

On the eastern shore of Lake Annecy, near Talloires and Montmin, the paragliding sails are mainly concentrated. Talloires also has conditions so good for the practice of this discipline that it appears as the first paragliding site in Europe. Before leaving the mainland and throwing yourself into the void, at an altitude of approximately 950 m, you will be able to enjoy the fabulous view of the lake and its outlines with, in the background, the city of Annecy and the mountains that are drawn. The orientation is good and takeoff is usually easy in the absence of wind. The site is often frequented by walkers and spectators who come to take off. Other take-off areas are Montmin-Col de la Forclaz, Montmin-Coche Cabane and Grand Bornand. The latter is particularly interesting if you want to fly over the Aravis massif.

There are three main landing zones:

  • Doussard (460 m above sea level): an area frequented by paragliders, hang gliders and kites.
  • Perroix (540m above sea level): an area with several facilities, including hotels, campsites, a bar and a sail repair center. Make sure you have read all the recommendations regarding this site before taking off.
  • Marlens (450 m altitude): this area is located south of the lake, between Faverges and Ugine. The wind can be strong in the middle of the day. Be very careful when approaching as you will see power lines near the landing area.
