Full description

Experience the extraordinary thrill of free flight in a paraglider, flying over the Piedmontese plain from the Graian Alps. You will admire the most beautiful views of Piedmont from above, from Gran Paradiso to the plains stretching as far as the Ligurian Apennines, before enjoying an aperitif with friends.

You will fly tandem with a professional pilot: all you have to do is admire the landscape and enjoy the flight until youland, which will be slow and gradual.

Get ready for a moment you will find hard to forget, a mix of unique sensations granted only to those who dare to take flight!

What we will do

We will meet the pilot at the agreed time near in Turin. Once we reachthe take-off area, we will have an exhaustivebriefing on the ground, in which we will be given all the technical information we need to tackle our paragliding flight in the best possible way.

Once we havedonned the necessary equipment, we will beready for take-off: just afew steps of run-up together with the pilot and, before we know it, we will be in the air!

We willtake off with the two-seater paraglider and will immediately be surrounded by the dimension that has been denied to humans: natural fragrances, birds and a multitude of colours will make us feel new and unique emotions.

During the flight - lasting about 10 to 15 minutes- we will remain at low altitude, flying over the most striking views of Piedmont from above.

The descent will be slow and gradual, ending with a soft landing on grassland. Finally, we will share our experiences while tasting typical local products, with an aperitif in company.

The activity lasts a total of about 1½ hours.

Who it is aimed at

Tandem paragliding is a fantastic experience of absolute freedom, open to everyone. The only requirements are the weight of the participants, which must be between 40 kg and 110 kg. No specific knowledge or special skills are needed, just a few steps and before you know it you'll be flying!

Vertigo while sitting comfortably in the air does not develop. As for nausea, in rare cases it is possible to suffer from it just as on a ship, car or plane, which is why it is advisable not to overdo it with food and especially alcoholic drinks.
