27.04.2013 - 30.09.2013

One of the best experiences in the Lucanian Dolomites of Basilicata

The Flight of the Angel

The Flight of the Angel

In the heart of Basilicata, a steel cable suspended between the summits of Castelmezzano and Pietrapertosa (in the Lucanian Dolomites) is the foundation for the unique and thrilling Flight of the Angel (Il Volo dell'Angelo).
From April 27th, visitors can enjoy this singular landscape, in contact with nature and in discovery of the true soul of the territory. 
Securely tied with a harness and hooked up to a zipwire, participants can experience an exciting adrenaline rush amidst this gorgeous scenery for one minute. 

The Flight of the Angel can be effectuated on two different lines, one 387 feet long, the other, 427. The first, called the San Martino, is at Pietrapertosa (at a height of 3,346 ft) and arrives at Castelmezzano (2,818 ft) after a run of 4,642 ft and maximum speed of 68 mph. 
The other line launches from Castelmezzano (at a height of 3,343 ft) and concludes at Pietrapertosa, touching down at 2,913 ft, after a distance of 4,764 ft and a velocity of 75 mph. 
Looking for a romantic way to zip? Couples can also fly in the sky, as long as they do not weigh more than 150 kg (or 330.7 lbs) together. 

After getting their thrills, participants can take on an excursion in the Small Dolomites of Lucani, observing the spectacular natural formations, particularly the peaks with names like Golden Eagle, The Anvil, the Mother Goddess and The Owl.  
Be sure to visit the two splendid villages as well, with their characteristic habitations nestled among rocky cliffs.
