Fassa Sky Expo
Test new materials from the best para/hang-gliding apparel brands in Campitello di Fassa
Admire the scenery from above, getting so close to the peaks that you almost touch them. Val di Fassa is perfect for feeling light in the sky, floating in the air thanks to the updrafts that develop through the massive walls of Sella, Sassolungo and Marmolada. Canazei and Campitello are considered first class stations in the Alps for free flying.
The seventh edition of the gather "Fassa Sky Expo", from September 24th to 26th, is organized by the local fly club Icarus Flying Team which headquarter isset in "Ischia" (Campitello). Enthusiasts and expert pilots - who come from different parts of Italy, as well as from Germany, Austria, France and other European countries - have the possibility to try the latest news on sale, such as the wings for paragliders and hang-gliders, the harness, the navigation tools, flying over the Dolomites between the end of summer and the autumn.
Not to miss is also the "Hike & Fly", the Saturday morning sport appointment that matches the hiking and the flying experience. The itinerary leads the participants with a mountain guide to a fascinating location at altitude, from where they take off to complete the circular itinerary landing between Campitello and Fontanazzo.
Not only sport, this week-end also offers entertainment and food. Saturday is entirely dedicated to the "Flying pioneers": talented paragliders and hang-gliders from all over the country will benefit of an area of the fair dedicated to meetings and information exchanges.
