The Flight of the Eagle

The Flight of the Eagle is a tourist attraction in San Costantino Albanese within the Pollino National Park in the province of Potenza. It is a wonderful experience that lets you fly from a mountaintop to the valley below.

Visitors, arriving in the valley, get strapped into the Aquila skylift, similar to a hang glider for 4 people and equipped with handles and footrests, and are conveyed to the take-off table at the top of the mountain. The aptly named flight towards the valley bottom begins here. Strict safety measures ensure that this is an unforgettable experience for all - including families with children aged 10 and over that want to share a moment of pleasure, pure enjoyment and healthy adventure in the Pollino National Park.
