Full description

Experience the thrill of a paragliding flight and experience a sensational adrenalin rush by launching yourself from Diecimo, in the province of Lucca, about 750 m above sea level.

In tandem with an expert pilot, all you have to do is follow simple directions and enjoy the splendid view of the Garfagnana from above. If you wish, you can even try paragliding!

Once on the ground, you will be eager to tell all your friends about this incredible experience. Word of someone who has tried it!

What we will do

We will meet at the agreed time in front of Bar pasticceria Bini in Diecimo, in the province of Lucca. We will meet the pilot here and, by our own means or using the additional transfer service, we will reach the take-off area in about 45 minutes.

Once there, we will begin our preparation for the flight: there will be a briefing on the activity and the rules of behaviour during take-off, in flight, and when landing. We will also do some simulations and routine checks to make sure that everything is as safe as possible.

Afterwards, we will settle into our harnesses, ready to take off. Here, a short run-up together with the pilot will be enough and, in no time, we will be floating in the air!

During the 20-minute flight (varying according to the winds of the day), we will be able to take photos and videos, but above all admire the breathtaking view of the Garfagnana, the Lucca Plain and, on clear days, the Versilia sea. We will also be able to ask the pilot to try driving the paraglider with small flight manoeuvres.

Thelanding will be very simple and guided by the pilot. The activity lasts a total of about 2 hours and ends with the return to the starting point.

Who it is aimed at

The activity is suitable for everyone. No special physical ability or flying knowledge is required: the passenger task is easy and natural, all you need is a little courage and to be in good health. You can participate from the age of 14 and up and with a weight between 45 kg and 110 kg.

Children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent.
