Om sommeren er toppen af Panarotta i 1500 meters højde og en konstant temperatur den perfekte trampolin til uforglemmelige flyveture.
Among the many places that Trentino offers to lovers of this kind of sport and to everyone who loves the marvellous landscapes and the practise of sports into nature, we want to suggest one in particular: Vetriolo Terme in Valsugana (Trento) where the VOLO LIBERO TRENTINO has been working since twenty years. From the top of the mount Panarotta, above 2000 meters, you have an excellent point of view over the Dolomites of Brenta, the alpin chain on north-west and the Valsugana with its beautiful lakes of Caldonazzo and Levico Terme in the south. As high esteemed ski centre the mountains around Vetriolo offer many possibilities to practice sport and rest. As the last defence in the Valsugana of the wild and wonderful group of the Lagorai, above the sights it offers very good possibilities for flights and crossing also in the less propitious months.
In summer the take-offs from Panarotta, with a height difference of 1500 metres and a regular temperature range are an optimal springboard for unforgettable flights. These take-offs can be reached by car along a dirt road in good condition.
The local Club „Volo Libero Trentino at the phone-number 0039 0461 701564.“ has equipped a new take-off near Vetriolo Terme, dedicated to Didier Favre in Vetriolo Terme about 1500 meters high directed to south with a springboard for hang-gliders and a natural slope for parachutes. The particular position allows also beautiful flights in winter and above all it allows to fly in case of north wind: a real rarity in the alpine zones! Next to this take-off, equipped with a large parking place and a big area for the mounting of the hang-gliders and the opening of the sail, there is a nice and comfortable meeting point at “Maso al Vetriolo Vecchio”. It is run by Francesco, always available for information about the weather and the flights
Lots summer takeoffs from top Panarotta, with an elevation gain of about 1500 meters and constant thermal regime, are a great springboard for flights unforgettable. During the flight you can even see the Camping Lago di Levico from above!
The official landing is near the village Barco di Levico, run from the club “Volo Libero Trentino”; a huge field in the middle of the valley with windsleeves and at the option of parking.
