Paragliding, airborne thrills, flying with the champions! It is no idle boast to call Val di Fassa the home of free flying. Here flying is possible all year round, taking off from one mountain rather than another, according to the season. Val di Fassa is the birthplace of Jimmy Pacher, paragliding world champion and national instructor, who opened a qualified school in Canazei using two-seater paragliders for tourism and flying approaching courses. Along with an instructor, you can break free into flight too, achieving the dream of flying over the peaks of Val di Fassa, enjoying an absolutely unique view.
Climbing up and down, making mistakes and trying again to find the right way to reach the top, in a continuous tension between the body and the mind: this is the thrill of the free climbing, that can be practiced at the two climbing halls that in Val di Fassa are open all year round.
Walk, trot, canter or gallop. Everybody at his own speed. The green meadows of the Val di Fassa, as well as its woods of firs, pines and larches, ant the paths flanking the rocks and the Avisio stream are ideal for the expert riders who want to enjoy a horseback riding tour in the nature. And if you have never ride a horse before, do not worry, you can count on the preparation of the owners of the local ranches.
