The conditions were aweful, but They went out of their way to make sure I got a jump in when I was scheduled to be there. The guide explained my role time. I had a great time. I recommend this adventure to any wanting to para glide or hang glide. I went hang gliding.

Very professional instructor who did everything so that we could carry out the activity despite the gloomy weather. Very nice, competent, and speaking French, he knew how to put us in confidence to make our first jump. Many thanks to him and his team!
