Alpine Paragliding Centre
Alpine Paragliding are the UK's most experienced paragliding trip and expedition operator. We were the first to offer remote area paragliding back in 1989 and have been organising trips and expeditions to the worlds top flying areas and mountain ranges since then. We consider our trips to be quite specialised, preferring to concentrate on providing our clients with expert and in depth knowledge of a limited number of outstanding paragliding destinations
We pursue a policy of constant revue of existing trips, and you can be sure that before any new trip makes it on to our schedule, it has been thoroughly researched and reconnoitered. This process ensures that our clients, can enjoy the experience fully, and without worry. Our average group size is 6-8 people, deliberately small to minimize the impact on often fragile mountain environments. We believe in, and fully support the international stand on environmental pollution and all our trips comply with the agreed guidelines.
