The flying places in Millau
We come from Montpellier, Albi, Toulouse or Béziers to fly on the paragliding sites of Millau. Indeed, the pilots appreciate the sites of the region for their quality of flight but also for their beauty. Here are the 4 must-see sites.
Puncho d'Agast, THE paragliding site of MillauPouncho d'Agast is the paragliding site of Millau par excellence! Located at the southwestern end of the Causse Noir in the pine forest of the Grands Causses National Park, it offers a beautiful view. Indeed, in paragliding, we see the city, the confluence of Dourbie on the Tarn, the Viaduct, the Causse du Larzac. You can also see in the distance the foothills of the Levezou Massif.
This pointed end of the Causse offers takeoffs with various orientations:
- South: Flight South to South East (Attention S-E marked strong!)
- South Delta: Idem
- West: Flight South West to West
- Northwest: Flight in ... North West!

Brunas, the site for flying near the groundBrunas is another popular paragliding site in Millau.
Located on the northern edge of the arid lands of Causse du Larzac, it overlooks the charming village of Creissels and Millau. It also offers one of the best views on the Viaduct, the Tarn and Levezou wind farm.
It is flown by North wind.
The softness of its slope allows reposes at the top as well as excellent sessions of play at ground level.
The dynamic yield is often very good on the cliff.
Be careful, however, to the strong Northeast (deco under the wind!).
