Lago Maggiore Zipline
The Lake Maggiore Zipline is the emotion of flying within the reach of everybody. As the crow flies, the distance from Pian d’Arla (1.307 meters altitude / 4.290 feet) to Alpe Segletta (960 m altitude / 3.150 ft) is 1.850 meters ( 6.070 ft ) to be covered in just over 90 seconds flying at the speed of over 120 km/h (75mph) firmly latched on to a cable.
The Lake Maggiore Zipline, inaugurated in August 2015, is located on Alpe Segletta in Aurano (VB) and it's the first in Europe that allows to fly on the same cable with two different way: Falcon Style, hanging from the back, in nosedive, to reach the best speeds; Free Style, frontally hanging, free and with the possibility to carry out movements of your choosing.
Other important features of Lake Maggiore Zipline are the great simplicity and the convenience of use, including the accessibility to disabled users, to which is added an interesting centrality compared to an important catchment area which includes all the tourist area of Lake Maggiore, Varese and Milan. Very beautiful and functional are the base stations (the Barn) and the arrival (the Nest) where a wood and glass structure houses the restaurant and cafè La Batùa, the ticket office, the toilets and a roof terrace with views on the mountains and on the arrival of the zipline, with parking available for 50 cars.
To fly you can go to the arrival station from where a convenient shuttle reaches the starting in just over 15 minutes.
Far and away the best road to reach the Lake Maggiore Zipline, the one that we strongly suggest and recommend is for certain the one that from Verbania leads to Piancavallo along the provincial road no. 55 Intra-Premeno and then take the provincial road no. 56 Premeno-Colle.
Once arrived at the panoramic terrace at the Belvedere of Piancavallo (a couple of hundred metres before the Auxological Centre), turn left towards Alpe Segletta.
Follow the road for about 2km (just over 1 mile), arrived at the first buildings of Alpe Segletta, on your right you will find the access road which will take you to the welcome station of Lake Maggiore Zipline.
If to get to the Lake Maggiore Zipline you should use the navigator, in planning the journey, make double sure to remember to insert Premeno as the intermediary stage.
