Alpine Adventures

Our efforts have always been towards exploring exotic locations around the world and make them available for our Club Pilots. You can experience some of the world's most stunning paragliding sites with the safety of flying with your own Instructors. Every year Team Templepilots explores the European Alps to find out the most stunning and reliable places to take our Club Pilots to enjoy flying there.

ITALY : Bassano -

Among most of the Alps, we have flown we found Bassano to be most reliable in terms of weather & easy in terms topography & terrain. Bassano town is at the southern edge of the Alps, often protected from bad weather. Big grassy launches and huge landing fields make it a perfect playground for XC Pilots. Its proximity to Venice would give pilots to enjoy a world class tourist destination and Italian food.

A late afternoon soaring down the impressive Aravis chain to the east is a fantastic evening run for pilots of any level.
