PARAGLIDING ON THE LAKE OF COMO
The Alps and Lake of Como are a really delightful setting; this area also gives visitors the opportunity to enjoy a unique experience and absolutely worthy to try: paragliding. This is the simplest and lightest means of free flying; it is designed to take off using the thrust of the pilot’s legs, and to fly using only the energy of the wind and of gravity. Obviously, the paraglider used is the “tandem” type. During your flight you will be accompanied by an expert, qualified pilot from the Aeroclub d’Italia. During your“trip” you will be seated in the front with the pilot behind you. All you have to do is very easy: just a quick run on a field sloping slightly downhill. If you do this, you will soon find that the land is beginning to slip away from beneath your feet. If you then cry out in amazement, wonder and a touch of fear “I’m flying!”, it is quite understandable. But all you need do at this point is simply enjoy the flight, let the wind caress your face and admire the wonderful view from high above.
During this wonderful adventure your weight will be canceled. The flight lasts about thirty minutes, with differences in altitude of well over 800 metres. Landing is not particularly difficult, given the low speed of flight and the small space required for landing. You will land gently on the ground without having to do anything except stay on your feet. Once you have landed, you will almost certainly be lost for words and be aware of a sense of unease at being back on the ground. It is almost impossible to be disappointed by this exhilarating experience.
MOUNTAINEERING ON THE GRIGNA
The Grigna is the highest peak in the Grigne mountain chain, a mass of alpine rock situated near Lecco. It stands between Valsassina on one side and the Eastern Branch of Lake Como on the other. In summer, this ascent is a normal excursion with a sizeable difference in altitude. In winter it becomes an easy mountain climb.
