CROSSING THE APENNINES – Adventure Trip
2 – 7 July 2017
Crossing the Apennines is a real paragliding adventure in the “Wild heart of Italy”. The goal is the cross the Central Apennine mountains by flying, with the help of logistical support. We will start in Monte Subasio, covering daily a distance between 50-80km to our next waypoint where we will sleep in an agriturismo or B&B, to end up after 6 days in the south of the Central Apennines. In case you bomb out we will pick you up along the road and drive you to the next waypoint. This makes it a perfect trip for different levels of XC pilots.
Depending on the weather forecast the route can be adapted in order to have the best flying conditions. The places we will cross are Monte Subasio, Poggio Bustone, Leonessa, l’Aquila and San Donato. The exact route will be revealed later.
The morning starts with a meteo briefing and preparation of the flight. In the air you will get cross country guidance from Giuseppe. He will show you the best route, give you tips and make you fly safely. In the evening we relax with the some good Italian food and a de-briefing of the day. It’s a nice way to improve your XC skills by enjoying spectacular landscapes and having a unique experience.
The guidance can be in Italian, English, Spanish, Greek or French.
