Paragliding

The feeling of gliding through the air with your own paraglider is always an unforgettable experience, but when the horizon offers such wonderful scenery as the Lake Maggiore Basin then it becomes a truly unique one.

Paragliders can launch themselves from Cimetta and experience wonderful flights over Lake Maggiore, the Bassa Vallemaggia and, in spring-time, longer flights northwards. Launching is very easy from this location and is an ideal place for instructors teaching beginners or for pilots who want to glide long distances of over 80 km.

Even if you are not a pilot, Cimetta could still be the ideal place for you to experience what it feels like to paraglide, and if you contact the Volo Libero Ticino association, you can safely try a tandem flight together with an expert pilot.
