Heraklion: Paragliding Tandem Flight

Heraklion: Paragliding Tandem Flight


Upon arriving at the take-off area, take some time to enjoy the beautiful views. Your pilot will begin to prepare the glider, while constantly and thoroughly checking the weather conditions. Watch him unfold the glider and deal with the hundreds of lines — a routine procedure for him. Then, gear up, putting your harness and helmet on. As your pilot prepares, he'll tell you a few things you need to know about the experience and describe how you'll feel in the air, so as to make the transition into flight easier on you.

As the passenger, you'll go in front, connected to the pilot who will control the glider. He'll inflate the glider, and all you have to do is run a few steps forward. 3, 4, and you're off. There are no words to describe the feeling of flying over Chania, a truly once-in-a-lifetime experience. When you are close to the ground, you and your pilot will land softly, jogging a few steps forward as you come into contact with the ground.


Take your holidays in Crete to the next level and enjoy scenic views of the island during a 20 minutes tandem paragliding flight over Chania. With the beautiful coastlines and mountains at your feet, live an incredible experience and fly in total safety with an expert instructor over Chania and Balos lagoon, in the northeast of the Island.

For your tandem paragliding experience, you don't need to have any prior experiencenor beparticularly sporty. Thanks to experienced and passionate instructors that will assure a safe tandem flight, you can fully enjoy the amazing feeling of flying and the great views of the mainland of Crete and the coastline.

Heraklion is a region with its own climate, making it flyable year-round. From the moment you take to the air, there are stunning views to enjoy stretching from one horizon to the other, and it’s likely that we’ll have vultures join us on our flight. We’ll fly over a beautiful lake and countryside often reaching altitudes of over 1200m for spectacular aerial views over the cities of Heraklion, Hersonissos, Malia and all the way along the northern coastline. This is a great, convenient option for those staying in above areas.
