Gliding and Quad Biking

Day One
Arrival at the hotel. Free time for dinner, and a night in the hotel.

Day Two
Breakfast in the hotel. Individual transport to the venue for a detailed safety talk before the ride with handy hints on how to handle the quad bike. Halfway round the course we stop for a break and something to eat and drink. This gives riders on a double quad bike the chance to swap drivers. The course is 35 km (nearly 22 miles) long and takes three hours. Recommended clothing: trainers or walking boots, long trousers (preferably jeans), a t-shirt (no vest tops), and gloves. The ride may not go ahead if bad weather makes the conditions unsafe: if this happens, the ride will be postponed. Guests are taken back to the hotel separately after the ride.

Day Three
Breakfast in the hotel. Individual transport to Calcinate. Anyone can experience the thrill of a glider flight, providing you are 12 years or over. The glider is towed to an altitude of 1000 metres for a half-hour flight, or towed to 750 metres for a flight of about twenty minutes. Gliding enables you to take to the air in a sailplane without the use of an engine. Guests are taken back to their pick-up points separately after the flight.
