There are almost 2 km that separate in a straight line Pian d’Arla (1,307 m. above sea level) from Alpe Segletta (960 m above sea level), 1,850 meters that can be covered in just over a minute and a half, flying at over 120 km/h, securely hooked to a cable. This is the essence of the Lago Maggiore Zipline, a thrill that runs on a wire and gives the excitement of flight. The Zipline is a steel cable suspended between two points featuring a different height where get hooked to a cable for a fast descent that gives the feeling of free flight. Unlike hang gliding, paragliding, and other non-motorized flight systems, the Zipline is within everyone’s reach; it does not require equipment, special skills, or preparation.

Falcon Style: The style of those who want to feel like a diving hawk. The hook is at the back; the position is stretched out, face down, arms and legs are gathered in an aerodynamic position searching for maximum speed. From 0 to over 120 km/h in just a few seconds for those who, in addition to the flight, love the thrill of speed.

DEPARTURE – “IL FIENILE”: Pian d’Arla (1307 above sea level) is located on the Cadorna Line, the fortification dating back to the First World War. Here, right next to the road, the departure station was built, a structure in stone and wood that replicates in every detail the traditional barns of the Intrasca Valley. According to tradition, the mountain barn collected the harvest of the most difficult meadows, where the slope forced to work in a difficult position holding on to a cable to mow with one hand the green and rare tufts of grass of the pasture. The barn was often connected to the overhanging wire mesh that carried the precious loads to the villages of the Intrasca Valley. Today that wire was transformed into the Fienile as the starting point of the Lago Maggiore Zipline. Entering, you have the feeling of being in a safe and quiet place, sheltered, where you can focus and get ready in the twilight. It is the moment before you dive into the light, the wind, the speed, and the emotion of the flight. The departure facility of the Lago Maggiore Zipline is also accessible to people with disabilities who need to move in a wheelchair.

ARRIVAL – “IL NIDO”: Alpe Segletta (960 m above sea level) is an inhabited alpine pasture equipped with hospitality facilities, second homes, and Alpine refuges. The Nido is the arrival of the Lago Maggiore Zipline, where you will find the free parking, ticket office, and La Batùa bar-restaurant, which offers traditional cuisine and wide spaces where you can spend time in company. The Nest is a tailor-made structure that fits into the wooded landscape, integrating perfectly with its appearance made of transparencies and crossed logs. Like a nest, it guarantees a perfect welcome to those who fly, to those who accompany, and to those who want to enjoy the Valley, perhaps watching the flyers! A network of paths starts from the Nido, allowing simple and pleasant walks suitable for children, and challenging paths for expert hikers, leading to high altitude through unique landscapes.
