One sport that considers Mount Baldo and Lake Garda a mecca for enthusiasts is certainly paragliding.
Thanks to the ascending currents (columns of warm air rising upwards), it is possible after take-off to climb to an altitude of up to three thousand metres, and then to reach the landing site in Malcesine, after a series of glides and spiral ascents.
It is not only Malcesine fans who fly, but there are many tourists and enthusiasts from all over the world who come to visit Monte Baldo to take advantage of the perfect flying conditions.
Many, on the other hand, are just ordinary tourists without a licence who turn to the various associations in Malcesine to try the experience of tandem flying with an experienced pilot, in complete safety, surrounded by a unique panorama such as that offered by Monte Baldo.
There are areas on Lake Garda where one can go paragliding or hang-gliding, enjoying a breathtaking panorama of the entire lake, for example by launching from Monte Baldo.
