Flight of the Eagle


The Flight of the Eagle is a zip-wire adventure that offers a ‘hand gliding’ style experience over the park below. It is located in San Costantino Albanese in the Pollino National park, although not for the faint of heart, it is a family friendly experience for up to four people to enjoy together.

The three minute experience begins by being securely harnessed into the specially designed four seat glider. The glider slowly makes its ascent up a 1200m steel cable above the Pollino National Park, providing ample time to take in the magnificent views, once the glider reaches the top it makes an exhilarating free fall decent back down, reaching speeds of up to 80kmph.



The ‘Flight of the Eagle’ is open to the public between 10am to 6pm in peak season. Tickets which cost €10 can be purchased on the day of your visit on a first come, first serve basis. Those flying must be 10 years and over and no less than 130 cm in height. The ‘Flight of the Eagle’ is set to be one of Europe’s must visit tourist attractions for 2014.
