Amalfi Coast zip-line: an adrenaline-pumping experience
We usually think of vacations in Italy as a relaxing experience to live between beautiful beaches, historic cities and great restaurants. But what if you were looking for a little adventure? Well, the Amalfi Coast zip-line is definitely something you should try.
What is a zip-line?
A zip-line is an amusement ride consisting of a pulley suspended on a cable, usually made of stainless steel, which is mounted on an incline. It allows riders to experience gravity-defying speeds as they soar from one end point to the other.
The Amalfi Coast zip-line runs from Furore to Conca dei Marini.
Traveling at speeds of up to 70 kilometers per hour and it is over 500 meters long. It offers an unforgettable adrenaline rush while providing a chance to admire the stunning natural beauty of the area.
How does the Amalfi Coast zip-line work?
Once you reach the starting station of the zip-line, professional instructors will provide you and the other participants with all the safety information. The Amalfi Coast zip-line was designed with safety in mind. All riders will have essential safety equipment such as helmets, gloves and harnesses, and will be fully briefed on how to properly use them prior to taking off.
Instructors will accompany each group, providing guidance throughout the experience and ensuring everyone’s safety at all times. So don’t worry — you can focus on enjoying the ride in full confidence knowing that your safety is always taken care of.
The Amalfi Coast zip-line is for everyone, children and adults, that requires no athletic training. Of course, it is not suitable if you suffer from vertigo! During the flight, in fact, you will admire a stretch of the Amalfi Coast from above, with your body completely suspended in the void. An enchanting landscape that may, however, impress those who do not like heights.
