Zip lining, an adrenaline-filled flight surrounded by nature
Soaring through the sky surrounded by nature, savouring the taste of freedom along with breathtaking views: six spectacular, high-adrenaline zip lines
22 July 2022
1. Piedmont: Zip Lining on Lake Maggiore
On the Piedmont side of Lake Maggiore, you can fly over Verbania, suspended 350 metres up in the air and immersed in the lush green of the Intrasca Valley and the Terre Alte. This zip line stretches from Pian d’Arla to Alpe Segletta, covering 1,850 metres in one and a half minutes, at a speed of over 120 km/h. You can choose to fly ‘Free Style’ in an upright position, allowing you to float in the air as you move and twirl around, or ‘Falcon Style’, in a horizontal position for maximum speed. You can experience both either individually or in a couple.
2. Lombardy: Flyemotion
Take flight in Valtellina thanks to the Aerofune zip line, suspended over the large valley in the Orobie National Park. This zip line experience covers two stretches with different lengths and heights: the first runs from Albaredo to Bema, suspended 230 metres above the ground and covering 1.5 kilometres, while the return flight covers 1 kilometre, 360 metres up in the air. The entire flight lasts for a total of two and a half minutes and you can choose to do it alone or as a couple; either way, you can enjoy stunning views over the entire valley. You can then head off in search of another adrenaline hit in the neighbouring Fly Emotion-Aerobosco adventure park in Bema.
3. Alto Adige: Zip lining with Adrenaline X-Treme Adventures
1,600 metres up, in the heart of the lush green South Tyrolean Dolomites (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), you can enjoy a flight covering over three kilometres and offering stunning views, as you glide along at speeds of up to 80 km/h, one hundred metres above the ground. From the mountain station of the Piz de Plaies cable car, this zip line will take you down to the small mountain village of San Vigilio di Marebbe, zigzagging over the valley until you reach the Cianross cable car station. This zip line is for single use only and is situated inside the adrenaline-filled adventure park of the same name.
4. Lazio: Flying in the sky
From the quaint village of Rocca Massimo in the Lepini Mountains, in the province of Latina, you can fly for over two kilometres, suspended 310 metres above the ground, at an average speed of 110 km/h and reaching up to 170 km/h at the fastest point. Enjoy incredible views from the top, stretching from Lazio’s coastline to the Alban Hills all the way to Abruzzo’s mountains, flying above varied landscapes that range from karsts to olive groves. You’ll land at the foot of Monte Sant'Angelo, home to the peregrine falcon. You can choose to fly alone or in a couple; also open in the evening during the summer.
5. Campania: Cilento from the sky
The Amalfi and Cilento coast, the Gulf of Salerno, the Paestum archaeological park and the island of Capri: this is the breathtaking view that will open up before your eyes as you fly 300 metres above the ground, covering 1.5 kilometres at a speed of 120 km/h, for a total of one and a half minutes. You can enjoy these panoramic views during the day, at sunset or at night, flying in either a seated or a horizontal position. You can choose to fly alone, in a couple, or even with your kids (aged five and over), whose safety is guaranteed by a harness that is specially designed for their size.
