Highline Meeting – Fun and Relaxation High Up in the Dolomites

By Brody Patterson

Most people like to literally have their feet firmly on the ground when on holiday – but for some, there’s no better feeling than hanging somewhere high above, with only air surrounding you in every direction. Some of these people meet in the Dolomites, a mountain range in northeastern Italy, during the Highline Meeting – the largest Slackline festival in Italy.

Slacklining is basically a kind of tightrope walking. The difference, as the name suggests, is that the slackliner’s rope isn’t as “tight” (it’s allowed to “slack” a bit). Both activities are just as perilous and, if you’re into mind-numbing heights and the adrenaline rushing through your veins, very fun! So fun, in fact, that attendees don’t even really retire to tents or other forms of accommodation – they just remain there, hanging hundreds of feet into the air in hammocks!

About 18 are set up for the meeting, from as low as 20 feet to as high as 300. Various slackline-related activities and presentations are organized, not to mention the fact that it’s a great place to meet like-minded people. The registration fee for the Highline Meeting is €30, or about $40.
