Activity description

Explore the historic heart of Southern Italy on this scenic tandem paragliding flight along the Gulf of Costa Viola.

A stunning bird's eye view from the Mediterranean coast, discover the turquoise blues of the Tyrrhenian Sea and the rocky outline of the Gulf of Santa Eufemia on this panoramic flight in Bagnara Calabra. Scanning the skies above the Messina strait, this flight overlooks the beautiful Aeolian islands and the rustic villages that punctuate the province of Reggio Calabria - a few kilometres from the beautiful and ancient city of Scilla.

Location
Situated on the coastline that separates Southern Italy from Sicily, Reggio Calabria is renowned as a port crossing across the Tyrrhenian Sea and bordered by the Aspromonte National Park. With strong historical and cultural ties, the coastal region is part of the popular Costa degli Dei ('Coast of the Gods') and the picturesque resort of Tropea.

Activity
Travelling inland to a mountain vantage point 540m above sea level, this 30-minute scenic flight will span the Messina Strait and the small villages of Bagnara Calabra - gliding on the warm summer thermals that breeze across the Mediterranean. Scan the coastline to the neighbouring Aeolian islands and relax mid-air, soaking up the breathtaking panorama.

Conditions
Operating during the dry and consistently warm summer season, the moderating influence of the sea and the protection given by the Alpine barrier from the cold north winds give Italy a nice temperate climate - offering seasonal and variable warm fronts.
