Paragliding school is available in the Cornizzolo area, to be able to enjoy this beautiful sport. Paragliding is a sport for every age and to become a pilot a valid certificate by an official school is obligatory.

 

During the Cornizzolo Cup, the mount Cornizzolo is the location of the paragliding world Cup, a beautiful event to discover and admire this sport. 

 

The mount Cornizzolo is also a great area for panoramic exscursions. The mountain house "Rifugio Sec Marisa Consigliere" (1100m)  is situeted near the top of the mount Cornizzolo and is reacheble also by shuttle bus. By foot is almost 2 - 3h of walking  following the paths and starting from the villages of Suello or Civate.
