Looking for something to make your Verbier holiday extra special? Want to try something different to skiing? Fancy yourself a bit on a thrill-seeker? We may have the perfect solution for you. There’s one thing we can all agree on: The views of Verbier and the surrounding snow-capped mountains are unrivaled. But what if we told you there were some totally unique ways to experience the heights of Verbier, obtain these stunning views in all their glory and engage in some once-in a-lifetime experiences?
Well, now you can soar Verbier on high with some of these extraordinary activities! Read on and gain the inspiration you need to make your next trip to Verbier a one of a kind.
Enjoy a bird’s-eye view of Verbier and the Valais region, fly past epic glaciers, endless forests and meandering valleys. Take to the dizzy heights of Verbier and make your flying dreams a reality with the top activities mentioned below. Experience Verbier like you have never done so before!
We’re just going to jump straight in (or off) with this one! Skydiving is a truly remarkable way to view the Verbier summits at peak height. Take in the beautiful mountain views while experiencing the thrill of freefalling through the air with one of Verbier’s exclusive skydiving schools.
You will first be taught the basics during an introductory session, then whisked away on a small plane where you and a qualified instructor will take the leap! After falling through the air for a bit, the instructor will release the parachute, where you will float gently back to the ground with time to take in your breathtaking surroundings.
Just when you thought it couldn’t get much better, some companies even offer the chance to skydive in luxury with a glass of champagne – certainly a good idea for calming the nerves!
If you’ve not experienced the excitement of paragliding (known as parapenting in France and Switzerland) before, Verbier is a great place for your first time. Many companies offer this wonderful activity, and with some of the most experienced fliers out there, you’ll be in safe hands every step of the way.
Ever wondered what it feels like to fly? Because paragliding will help you to do just that. Glide from the mountain tops and gracefully sail through fantastic, panoramic views – all with your professional instructor in tow to guide you and help maneuver the parachute.
We recommend going on a sunny, warm day – but do remember to take warm clothes!
If leaping out of a plane, or jumping off the side of a mountain isn’t for you, you can also experience the heights of Verbier by helicopter! Some tour companies even offer a bespoke experience where you can inject pure indulgence into your trip.
For example, you could combine your helicopter experience with a glacier picnic where you can enjoy classic fondue or fine dining from hand-carved snow tables decorated with lavish furs with your own private waiting staff.
You can even combine your trip with an overnight stay in the mountains, exploring the region in greater depth and venturing into the wilderness.
When you’re done soaring through the fresh mountain air you may find yourself in need of some accommodation!
