The Friulian Dolomites with Piancavallo and at their feet, the Magredi (the "Lands Skinny," a river of white stones that rises majestically where the rivers Cellina and Meduna plunge and form a huge underground reservoir) are a 'vast, eclectic open-air gym. A gym is always open, 365 days a year, where athletes - whether they are beginners or agonists - can practice their favorite sport both in highly specialized areas and facilities (such as the Nordic Life Park or the Nature of Andreis Water Park Pradis Clauzetto ) that along paths that simply follow the course of nature.
The two wheels, first and foremost. Panoramic mountain roads, bike paths along the rivers in the foothills, the Ciclovie Valleys Pordenonesi for families and cyclists, dozens of trails of various kinds of difficulty for bikers, arduous climb to the agonists, a fun bike to Funkpark fans of freeride and downhill Piancavallo: on two wheels will get you everywhere, you can follow the paths trodden by the axes of the Tour of Italy in 2014 and those of the samples of the international circuit of Caneva, among the best at the international level by virtue of its ups and downs.
And then: hiking, trekking on foot and on horseback, but also slow walking and orienteering in the Magredi is that in the high mountains. Climbing, free-climbing, eco climbing the peaks of the Dolomites of Friuli and rock climbing in Erto, near the dam of the Vajont, Castelnuovo del Friuli, Clauzetto, Travesio, Vito d'Asio. Paragliding on the slopes of Monte Cavallo and the heights between Travesio, Castelnuovo, Solimbergo, where there is also un'avio surface for ultralights. Golfing in the 18-hole course of Castel d'Aviano. Several Nordic walking paths are traced in various locations, from Piancavallo Valeriano, from Claut Montereale. But the realm of Nordic walking is Andreis, with his Nordic Life Park: 8 routes of varying length, variously sized and clearly mapped (downloadable from the website www.dolomitifriulane.info), rental equipment and instructors.
The waters are different, extraordinary outdoor gym: the lovely lakes (such as, deep blue, Barcis, between the capitals of the international capital speedboat, which annually hosts a round of the World Cup) are fantastic mountain-beach; streams (Cellina, Meduna, What, Arzino) are fun trails for kayaking and canoeing, and flowing with more impetuous as in Upper Valcellina for rafting; caves and gorges are a paradise for lovers of canyoning, who flock there from all over Europe. The most spectacular are the Caves and the Ravine Pradis, Clauzetto, complex of caves and canyons equipped to safely accommodate the visitors, who can safely descend to the bed of the stream that over millions of years were excavated. Next to them (certainly among the most fascinating natural spectacles of Friuli Venezia Giulia) is the seat of Nature Water Park Pradis (www.liveandplay.net), centrocanyoning to turn to for rent equipment and be accompanied along adventurous paths of various kind of difficulty (the simplest Water Park are a natural, ideal for families with children).
Finally, the summer of Pricing, young and sporty resort par excellence of Pordenone mountains, is animated by the fun and Rampipark Funkpark Bike stunt by climbing mountaineering, mountain biking and Nordic walking, tennis and archery, hang gliding and paragliding, trekking and horseback riding.
