Do you like flying in an air balloon? Or going tandem paragliding? Or skydiving? We all like to experience sports that give us adrenaline, and it is in our hands to decide how far to go. In this article, you find out what sports you have to experience while being in Italy.
There are so many wonderful experiences to go through and we are here to help you with the activities to do while being in Italy and other tips that will make your trip worth remembering!
Extreme sports lovers will find Italy as the ideal place where they can experience their passions. This country, in fact, offers opportunities to practice all types of extreme sports: ground, air or water ones. Here is where national parks, mountain ranges, rivers and the sea favorize most of the extreme sports.
There are many places to venture into, starting with the Dolomites, Firenze, the course of the Baltea that considered the Colorado of Italy and much more.
In Italy you can practise fly pulley from Pietrapertosa to Castelmezzano, in the province of Potenza, on the Dolomites of Basilicata in the heart of this beautiful region, but also in Valtellina, a few steps from Lake Como starting from Albaredo, in the province of Sondrio, and arriving in Bema, and finally in San Vigilio di Marebbe, in the province of Bolzano, suspended 1000 metres high in the Dolomites.
From water to air, another extreme sport is paragliding which is often practiced on Italian heights: an experience on the two-seater with an instructor, or alone but only for more experienced people. You can take off from Monte Baldo, between the provinces of Trento and Verona, and admire Lake Garda; from Norma, in the province of Latina, on the Lepine mountains, or from Calascio, Abruzzo, in the National Park of Gran Sasso and Monti della Laga.
Furthermore, among the most popular extreme sports there is also bungee jumping: a launch into space from a bridge, a crane or a suspended structure, attached to a rubber band and harnessed by the ankles.
Between all these extreme sports, we are mostly suggesting 3 of them as the best-organized activities where you will get the thrills and avoid bad experiences.
