World's highest wire (La Tyrolienne)
Orelle Val Thorens - French Alps

Reach Val Thorens as an eagle : by the air!

A glide over 1300 m… 1 minute 45 seconds of pure pleasure in breathtaking surroundings, from the 3 Valleys peak at 3230 m, at the top of the Bouchet chairlift in the Orelle resort, over to the Val Thorens crest, at 3000 m, at the top of the Thorens Funitel.

From Orelle to Val Thorens, suspended from a steel cable, comfortably installed in a cocoon of fabric which will take you over the 100 km/h barrier, you can experience what it feels like to be a great bird of prey, soaring over infinite spaces.
