PARAGLIDING

PARAGLIDING TANDEM EXPERIENCE - NuAdventure

Paragliding made its appearance on the flight scene in the mid-1970s, when some Swiss mountaineers began using it to descend the peaks after conquering the summit. These experiments, however suggestive and of strong spectacular impact, remained isolated events until, in 1978, the paratroopers of Haute-Savoie, decided to use the caisson parachute for take-off on foot from the slope, in an attempt to free for all their launches from the use of the airplane. The first to make this kind of take-off were Claude Bétemps and Gérard Bosson who, in June, Mieussy, launched themselves using the strong updrafts of the cliff. On the occasion of a world parachuting rally, this practice went beyond the borders of Switzerland and France and spread all over the world.

TRY A TWO-SEATER PARAGLIDING FLIGHT: For many, the tandem flight is certainly, in most cases, the first flight experience, which can be lived a first and only time in life, or become an experience that will surely continue to thrill, so it is a must that it is the most beautiful and satisfying one can imagine. You will be accompanied in this wonderful experience by qualified pilots or carefully selected instructors who will not only make sure that the aerological conditions are optimal but will try to satisfy your expectations to the maximum by using only specially created and approved equipment to offer the passenger the highest level of safety. During the flight you can film the landscapes and take amazing photos. Try it, it will definitely be worth it.

Torre della Pegna - Alghero - Sardegna - Costa Ovest - YouTube

The excursion from Capo Caccia to Torre della Pegna takes about four hours. The distance to cover is quite short, but it becomes difficult, in some places, due to the lack of a well-defined path. Once you get to the mountain you can admire the beautiful tower of Aragonese origin, built on a cliff overlooking the sea of over 200 meters high. From here the view opens onto the bay of Porto Conte, Monte Timidone and its forest, Punta Cristallo and Capo Caccia. During the journey you can meet deer coming from the Reserve and griffons. Nearby there is also Cala Dragunare, ideal for a post-excursion swim!
