Around us: sports and activities
Those who love contact with nature can choose among a wide range of activities thanks to the great natural heritage of this region: hang-gliding from Mount Subasio and hiking in the Mount Subasio Park; Mount Cucco and its park offer also cycling, hiking, skiing, mountain biking, equestrian tourism or fishing. The more skillful excursionists will find on Mount Cucco several routes to explore its underground caves. In the Lake Trasimeno Park, sets among the Umbrian hills, it is possible to follow bicycling, walking or horse-riding itineraries in order to discover the hills surrounding the lake and the towns overlooking it.
Wide spaces and grasslands are ideal for mountain biking and horse-riding activities. The area is much appreciated by sports enthusiasts who love hiking in order to discover the flowers growing in the area, ranging from poisonous plants, alpine flora, orchids and also varieties of fauna. Bird watching opportunities abound, above all within the nature reserve run by the WWF: more than 900 hectares where you can find up to 160 different bird species among the migratory and sedentary ones. The presence of mountains makes mountaineering a popular activity here. Moreover, the local sports associations are very active in organizing canoeing and kayaking excursions and courses along the rivers.
