Arrival at the hotel. Free time for dinner, and a night in the hotel.
Morning: breakfast in the hotel. A time and place for participants to meet will be arranged. 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. Great gliders harness the air to provide all the energy they need to fly.
Afternoon: a time and place for participants to meet will be arranged. Individual transport to Santa Caterina del Sasso, where we get on board the boat for two hours of stress-free sailing. Enjoy a spectacular sunset as we sail past the monastery sipping an aperitif. We leave at 6.15 p.m. and return at 8 p.m. Guests are taken back to their pick-up points separately after the activity.
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. Please wear weather-appropriate clothing. The ride may not go ahead if bad weather makes the conditions unsafe: if this happens, the ride will be postponed.
