Paragliding in Umbria, over Montecucco

The thrill of flying over boundless forests and grasslands: on this paragliding option, you can fly over one of the most beautiful natural parks in Umbria. Prepare for an adrenalin charge and get ready to see some spectacular scenery

The chosen departure point is Monte Cucco, which has been part of the protected area of ​​the Parco di Monte Cucco since 1995. The summit, at 1566 metres, is located in the Umbria-Marche Apennines and is used as a take-off point by numerous free flight, paragliding and hang-gliding enthusiasts. The area is also famous for having hosted several world hang-gliding championships and other flight-related events. Together with its picturesque charm, Monte Cucco is an ideal location for paragliding, thanks to its favourable climatic conditions and mountainous geography.

After a quick briefing with your instructor, a short run will enable you to take flight. You’ll feel the exciting rush of losing contact with the ground and enjoy a comfortable seat on the two-seater paraglider. You’ll also be surrounded by a breath-takingly varied panorama and float feather-like over slopes, valleys, centuries-old woods, springs and streams.

Flying in a paraglider is sure to give you an exhilarating sense of freedom and an adrenalin-charged, thrilling experience.

Landing is scheduled about one kilometre from the village of Sigillo and the spot is clearly visible from Via Flaminia.

Paragliding is not considered an extreme sport but an exciting activity suitable for both beginners and experts. So if you want to get involved and experience thrilling sensations, all you have to do is prepare yourself for the adventure and take flight! Paragliding is a way to discover new horizons and try a new experience that you’ll doubtless long to repeat!!
