La Coupe Icare (free flight & paragliding festival)

A cheerful and colourful event, just like the event’s famous posters you will come across in Grenoble: every year, Icare Cup takes place up in Saint Hilaire du Touvet, and flies down to Lumbin, with sound encouragements from a fascinated audience. Keep your eyes wide open to enjoy a joyful and slow dance of patterned paragliders, the majesty of silent balloons rising up in early morning mist, or the buzzing loops of freestyle air pilots across the Grésivaudan valley – although your neck might hurt at the end of the day, this festival is a must-see.
