Millau Things to Do: 24 reviews and 30 photos
Try your hand at Parapente. Millau is a good place for novices to do this. We found a number of organisations that offer a tandem opportunity for beginners. Basically an experienced pilot does all the work and the novice sits in a big pouch below the pilot. My wife and my daughter both wanted to do it and so we booked for an afternoon flight - it lasted only about 20 minutes.
At about £50 each it's not a cheap activity which is why I didn't do it - but next time it will be my turn! For your money you get taken up in the van, kitted out and launched. During the flight the pilot has a camera on a pole and encourages you to look up so that you can have your photo taken midflight. My wife felt this was a little annoying but my easygoing daughter didn't mind.
Both landed safely and both of them really enjoyed the trip though I think it's interesting that neither have said they have a burning desire to repeat the experience. Maybe it's one of those seen it, done it; what's next experiences?
At the end each flier is given a certificate and encouraged to buy a CD of the pictures taken during the flight. We didnt indulge in this. I'd got a few photos and that was enough to record the event.
