    Paragliding

    Do you dream of taking flight?

    Solo: reserved for expert paragliders and mountain aerology enthusiasts. Thollon has take-off and landing areas. Mountain aerology varies throughout the day, an easy take-off in the morning can become very physical by the end of the day. Get more info from local regulars. The cable car enables quick turnaround.

     

    Duo: Jean-Claude Bétemps, the man who invented paragliding in 1978, and the Air Léman team will welcome you to Thollon-les-Mémises and offer tandem first flights (a descent of 1250m). In a panoramic or educational flight, you will discover Lake Léman in a whole new way. The flight includes the cable car ticket, and the return journey to the village, insurance, as well as a video of your flight.

    MTB

    Cross-country MTB on the Gavot Plateau

    The French Cycling Federation’s MTB site is the Gavot Plateau, which offers around 185 kilometres of forest tracks, trails and local roads for mountain bikers to enjoy rides in bucolic alpine pastures and more technical terrain. The Évian-Thollon or Bernex shuttle bus allows bicycles. It’s a great solution for reaching the plateau if you don’t have an electric-assisted bike and then all downhill to Publier from there! There is a free map available in the Publier Tourist Office.

    Downhill MTB and Bike Park in Bernex

    The resort has set up a bike park (with a patrol team) consisting of 5 tracks including easy ones for the whole family. There is also a pump track. A map is available at the Publier-Amphion Tourist Office. You can access the park using the Pré Richard chairlift, which is open every day until 1st September (10:00 am-5:30 pm).
