XC CROSS COUNTRY

During  Summer, when daylight is longer and the sun heating is at its peak, it is possible to exploit the thermal and the winds alignment at a high altitude and so to be able to move many kilometers onward, among valleys, gentle slopes, mountain peaks and clouds.

You will realized how fast landscape changes beneath you: tree-lined slopes, green woods, crops, riverbeds, lakes, cities.

No engines, no devices, just pure context with the silence of the sky sharing the air only with birds which can be your company for a while, and jet being able to move and to proceed, far away, onward; the only sound: the wind!
