Full description

Fly in a two-seater paraglider over one of the most beautiful villages in Italy, Stilo, in the province of Reggio Calabria, and admire from above the charm of a pearl hidden in the lush vegetation of the Calabrian Serre.

Let yourself be carried away by the ascending currents and sit back to enjoy the spectacle of nature, which will amaze you with the intense green of the woods and the blue of the Ionian Sea on the horizon.

In tandem with an experienced pilot, you will carry out the experience in total safety and peace of mind. All you have left to do is get ready for take-off!

What we will do

We will meet the pilot near Stilo, a small village perched on theCalabrian Apennines, in the province of Reggio Calabria.

Once we reach the take-off point several hundred metres above sea level, we will have a preparation briefing in which the pilot will explain the operating principles of the paraglider and provide us with all the instructions we need to fly safely.

For take-off, a short run-up will suffice, and in no time we will find ourselves suspended in the air, flying with the updrafts. A magnificent panorama will open up before our eyes, dominated by the dense vegetation of the Calabrian Serre, mountains characterised by a high forest presence.

Among the trees we will be able to glimpse the village of Stilo, with its small stone houses, the ruins of the Norman Castle and the peculiar little domes of the small Byzantine church of the Cattolica. And framing all this, the deep blue Ionian Sea on the horizon.

In total, the activity will last about one hour, including travel, preparation and flight lasting between 20 and 30 minutes, depending on wind conditions.

Who it is aimed at

Tandem paragliding does not require any specific skills or experience. It can be performed by anyone in good physical condition and weighing between 30 and 130 kg.

Pregnant women cannot fly. For disabled persons, conditions will need to be assessed on a case-by-case basis (contact us privately for more information).

Other information

This activity can be carried out all year round, weather permitting.
