This tandem flight from the Aiguille du Midi takes you to the world of the high-mountain.
The experience is simply breathtaking. Roped to your guide and wearing crampons, you will hike the Aiguille du Midi’s snow ridge down to the takeoff site which will be selected depending on the wind conditions. The flight over the Vallée Blanche’s glaciers and the Aiguilles de Chamonix dressed in their magnificent robes of granit is a perpetual rapture
Caution: this is a difficult flight and the weather conditions play a big part in its feasibility.

Weather conditions play in big part in whether this flight will be feasible or not ; it is not that often that we takeoff from the Aiguille du Midi. The high altitude winds and deep unpacked snow that sometimes prevent us from taking off are also what make this flight so precious. For you to experience this flight will demand that you remain on call until the proper conditions come about.
