SLOW STYLE TO THE EAST

Many sporting activities are available here in spring and summer: there is a wide network of CAI marked trails for trekking lovers; tarzaning is available at the Parco delle 100 Avventure in Prato Spilla, which features treetop courses with bridges, walkways and ropes; finally, in Schia there is a flight school managed by a team of professional pilots where you can learn paragliding and hang gliding. The area of Prato Spilla and of the Upper Parma Valley offers many free climbing and rock climbing opportunities. In Prato Spilla there is also an awesome downhill, run for mountain bikes, as well as many other trails; the Grande Giro MTB (great mountain bike trail) covers  over 250 km connecting the trails of the Parco dei 100 Laghi with those of Mount Fuso, touching also Mount Caio..  In Corniglio and Monte Fuso there are two mountain bike schools to learn the different techniques. In the village of Monte Fuso, inside the Parco Provinciale di Monte Fuso, there is an archery ground and also a horse riding school that offers the opportunity to try equestrian tourism along the trails created on purpose inside the park; these trails join the larger circuit called Via del Sale, the horse trail of the Parma and Enza valleys, which covers about 288 km with a further 55 km of alternative routes.
