Paragliding and hang gliding sites in Italy


Volo Libero – free flying in Italy! Along the southern side of the Alps, a large number of sites await, in a huge arc extending from the gateway to the Riviera across Piemont, Lombardia, Trentino and South Tyrol towards Venezia and Friuli at the border with Slovenia. Bear in mind, this is only the extreme north of the country!

This region offers the most diverse range of scenery imaginable: from the icy peaks of Monte Rosa to the warm and pleasant lake sites above Lago Maggiore or Lago di Como, from the eternal rock spires of the Dolomites to the Grappa hills around Bassano.

Flying in Italy has a different character than flying on the northern side of the Alps or in the central Alps. Flying begins earlier in the year and extends longer into the autumn (except for the places the fog can reach). The days often become hot and humid in summer. Several central sites have developed, not just for the Italian pilots but rather for the visitors escaping the cold and rainy north into a more protected climate.
