The territory is characterized by optimal flight conditions, thanks to its position that sees the air coming from the Po valley channeling on the slopes of the Pedemontana.
In the area of Mount Cornizzolo (Brianza) it is possible to try flying experiences with hang gliding and paragliding and during the year, international competitions of these disciplines are often organized in this area.
Also in High Lario, Valsassina and Intelvi Valley there are numerous centers where you can practice this sport. If the paraglider is not for you, you can try a flight experience on board a seaplane, the most original way to see the landscape from above and land on the lake. In fact Como is home to the oldest school in the world, the only one in Europe for seaplanes, the Aero Club Como, born in 1930.
Another experience to try, if you are near Sondrio, is the “Fly Emotion Aereofune”. Thanks to a harness you will be assured to a cart that runs along a steel cable through an uncontaminated mountain valley, giving moments of emotion and breathtaking views.
