Perhaps you associate Provence with fields of aromatic herbs, delicious wine and idyllic, rural holidays, but there is another attraction to add to the list: some of the best sites for thermal-riding in Europe.

Laragne in particular is world famous for its excellent long-distance flying conditions, due to the land formations and mild Mediterranean climate.

The best paragliding is to be had between April and September, but the conditions here are good all year round, and needless to say, once you’re up there, the views are beautiful.
