Have you always dreamed of flying? Go to La Colmiane and whizz through the air at almost 120 km/h! The longest zip line in France, and also one of the longest in Europe, awaits in La Colmiane. Enjoy its direct view over the incredible Mercantour national park.
I tested the La Colmiane zip line!
Avec ses 2663 mètres de câble, la tyrolienne de La Colmiane est aujourd’hui la plus grande de France !
You can descend alone or as a duo to share the sensations! Children are admitted from the age of 8 with the duo formula. First, you’ll have to go on the scales to calculate the size of your “parachute”, a kind of sail used as a brake to slow the speed of the descent. You will then be equipped with a harness and a pair of safety glasses. My advice? Consider taking your own glasses: you’ll look much classier on your photos!
Discover the sensations of a long, breathtaking flight!
The first few seconds are surprising: you see yourself going into a void at full speed: thrills and adrenaline guaranteed! Below, the trees go past at top speed! The Colmiane zip line allows you to reach a speed of 120km/h! And then slowly, you get used to this feeling of flying, and you contemplate the landscape: below, small turquoise mountain lakes. In the distance, the majestic alpine peaks of the Mercantour national park. And in the end you’ll wish it lasted a little longer.
Dream of flying? Your turn!
Allow €35 for this activity – available in summer and winter. Online booking is mandatory. This activity is often a victim of its own success so remember to book early. You can choose and block your time slot directly. Choose a descent in the morning to enjoy a clear sky.
Still got some energy left? Good! The La Colmiane resort offers a host of activities in summer: trampoline, summer toboggan, via ferrata, paragliding, mountain biking! Something to keep you busy for the day, and more.

is in La Colmiane!
Who hasn’t dreamed of changing lives one day and earning a living doing something you love? Two years ago, I left my job as an engineer to become a photographer, videographer and digital nomad. Living in Nice, I fell under the spell of the Côte d’Azur. This region has made me what I am today: a fulfilled sportsperson that loves and respects nature. I share the beauty of this area and its many sporting possibilities and show you the things that made me fall in love with it!
