The paraglider consists of a steerable, lightweight fabric wing attached to the pilot’s harness. Tandem paragliding is the best choice for all enthusiasts who do not have a flight license and want to be carried away by the currents in total safety.
Firmly attached to the instructor, a short downhill run-up is all it takes for the paraglider to open and take off, following the updrafts until landing. Paragliding is an activity closely dependent on weather. You fly only with favorable weather conditions, so the booked date is confirmed the day before.
Near Bergamo there are two fascinating lakes that can be admired from above by paragliding. Starting from Sarnico or Franciacorta, you can fly over Lake Iseo, while from the San Fermo Hills you can fly over Lake Endine. Both are perfect for those who want to contemplate the natural beauty surrounding these two enchanting bodies of water.
From Brescia we take off from Mount Maddalena , which lies between Lake Iseo and Lake Garda. From here you can see the Brescian Pre-Alps, the Bergamo Pre-Alps, and much of the Po’ Valley. On clearer days you can even see the Apennines.
On Mount Cornizzolo, at about 1,240 m above sea level, there is one of the most famous take-off points among paragliders in Lombardy. Taking off from here it is possible to fly over the Lake Lecco branch and the five pearls of Brianza: the Brianza lakes of Annone, Pusiano, Alserio, Garlate and Montorfano.
Those who want to fly in Lombardy can also choose a paragliding flight in Montalto Pavese or Ca’ del Monte. From these sites you fly over the hills and valleys of Oltrepò Pavese and discover an area rich in nature, traditions, and biodiversity.
For those who want to fly to the Lombardy side of Lake Garda, the best place to start is Gardone Riviera. From here we reach Mount Pizzocolo, a renowned takeoff point in the Brescian Pre-Alps that offers sweeping views of the western side of the lake and part of the Po Valley.
The price of paragliding flights in Lombardy varies from 90 to 150 euros depending on the departure location, the average duration of the flight and the offered services, such as photos or videos. Equipment is always included in the participation fee.
Flying with a paraglider is an experience to try at least once in a lifetime and is perfect for celebrating birthdays and graduation or bachelor/bachelorette parties. A tandem flight is an original idea for any occasion. Give this fantastic activity as a gift and leave a lasting memory in the minds of the people you love.

A wonderful first flying experience! Alberto - with whom I flew - but also all the other instructors present, who were very good and professional, and above all capable of putting you at ease right from the start. The only flaw was the timing: we arrived perfectly on time, but the activity took place quite late (e.g. there was also a girl who should have launched an hour earlier, but was still waiting for someone to tell her something). An experience I will definitely repeat!

It was a great experience, freedom's website however did not warn me that the day before I would have to write to the expert who would accompany me on this adventure. Because of this we did not make the flight at the scheduled time but later! The flight doesn't last 25 minutes but a little less, otherwise a really good experience, the group was nice and friendly, no need to be afraid, I recommend it to everyone!!!!!

A beautiful experience! The tranquillity of being guided by expert hands and being led by the wind was really exciting. The whole experience was enriched by the jovial, fun and deeply human atmosphere of the staff, who were able to lighten the moments of tension and offer great professionalism! Well done to everyone and thanks in particular to Giulio for the emotions experienced and the laughter shared!!!

Alan, Giorgio and Roberto gifted us with an amazing experience, floating up in the sky with a stunning view on lake Garda. The drive up the mountain with them is an experience itself. The road is very suggestive and they made it even better by sharing lots of insights about the area and their personal experience.nHighly recommended!!!
