“The most ambitious Adventure of a lifetime”
This idea came to life in Ludovic Vulliemin’s mind one November morning in 2017.
To take off from Ljubljana in Slovenia and to walk/ fly to Monaco.
Only on foot or paragliding.
The checkpoints are clear, the deadline is set, but the road to get there…
impossible to foresee!
It is a human adventure in the heart of Europe, between the sky and the earth.
Each day the mountaineer-hikers will need to progress on average 50km.
Between breath-taking landscapes, hazards, variable weather, euphoria and epic moments, this film will be the tale of two friends that nothing can separate.
To reach a summit is an indescribable sensation, an intense joy.
There are 7 countries to cross, so we will attempt to ascend their 7 highest summits.
Depending on the possible access points and the weather, we will choose a combination of walking, paragliding and mountaineering.
Last summer, Nico crossed Switzerland in total autonomy in 4 days. This crossing required meticulous preparation and represented more than 150km of flying, 100km of walking and 10’000m positive elevation.
In 3 years of flying, he has already acquired a level of experience well above the average.
Our two pilots are used to flying together.
They have the same approach to paragliding and mountaineering, share common values, know each other well and have already completed many long flights side by side.
Ludovic had already completed many mountaineering expeditions in the Himalayas and North America. Always looking for new challenges, he spent more than 3 weeks canoeing on rivers in the depths of Canada and Mongolia in total autonomy.
As the founder of this project, it is with a paraglider that he wants to surpass himself today.
With more than 250 annual flights he has acquired solid experience in long-distance flights and notably has recently started training to break the distance record in one day from Rochers-de-Naye, Montreux, Switzerland to Feldkirch in Austria, equivalent to over 200km.
