Discover the Prealpes

Practical information

The take off is from the village of Château-d’Oex, in the morning. After just a few minutes in the air, you’ll already have a spectacular view: a 360° view over the valley and its most beautiful peaks. When we get up to 3,000 meters above ground level, we’ll be in the most absolute calm and you’ll admire the Alpine panorama. The adventure ends with a flight certificate as well as a toast to celebrate with our best local products. The flights last between an hour and an hour and a half, and the total duration of the activity is from three to four hours.


Depending on the wind forecast, the flight starts either going down the valley on the side of Gruyère, or over the Saanenland passing by the Vanil Noir, or towards the Plain of the Rhone. Even though each itinerary is different, the view is always breathtaking. From above, you will be at a perfect bird-perspective to admire the Alps, from Mont Blanc to the Eiger, through the Grand Combin.
