Valsugana is famous as a bike and hike destination, but travelers can practice many other sports. The summer is perfect for paragliding, golf or horse riding, whereas in winter you can ski in one of the ski areas.
In summer the take-offs from Panarotta, with a height difference of 1500 meters 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“ 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!
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 wind-sleeves and at the option of parking.
Playing golf in Valsugana is revitalizing and offers a self-challenging experience: the chance to play a game, to practice greens and competitions for experts, the possibility of learning and practicing for those who have never played.
