A different kind of chasing contours this time but contours nonetheless! Tour D’ai is a mountain in Switzerland reached by climbing up a Via Ferrata and then a tricky launch followed by a great flight back down to the village of Aigle!
Whilst visiting Tim’s cousins in Shieldaig, a lovely remote little village in the Northwest of Scotland, Tim took the chance to hike up the mountain that overshadowed the village and chase some different contours.
The hike up was about 550m on a windless day; the views stunning! He flew down on a small paraglider or speed wing that is ideal for “Hike & Fly” expeditions.
