Just one hour north of Nice you will find the popular winter and summer destination of Colmiane, in the Mercantour National Park.
The resort has a whole host of activities to enjoy all year round, including mountain biking, summer luge, via ferrata, rock climbing and skiing and snowboarding in winter. Now, they have one more reason for you visit this beautiful area of the Mercantour National Park. The Longest Zipwire in France!
Launching this Saturday, 19th December, and open to the public from 20th December, the zipwire will be available in both summer and winter for people to enjoy the flight of a lifetime. Two lines, totalling 2663m, fly over the Colmiane ski resort at a top speed of 120km/h, dropping 390m in altitude. The ride will be open to adults and children over 12 years of age for an individual flight and for children between 8 and 11 years old for a dual flight accompanied by an adult.
The first flight will be undertaken by one of the most successful extreme sports athletes, Taïg Khris. He will be available all day to have your photo taken, or to give an autograph. From 10:30 on Saturday there will be many activities for young and old to enjoy, from fire eaters and magicians, to a visit from Santa Claus.
