What you'll do

Flight Duration 15 minutes.
The most simple, easy and safe way to get in the air! A unique feeling and an experience to remember for a life time!
You do not need to know about paragliding. The pilot will explain to you a few things in a short briefing before any flight, and the only thing you need, is to take some fast steps forward.
The moment where one step is on mother earth, and the next one in heaven we call air! In no time the glider will take us in the air, you will sit back in your comfortable harness and you will enjoy the view from above! The movement of the glider on the air is smooth until the time your feet touch the ground. Unless you ask from the pilot for some adrenaline.
The total duration from the meeting point, drive to take off, get ready, fly, and from landing field drive back to meeting point is 1.5 hour more or less.
Have in your mind that paragliding is 100% weather depended activity, so there might be reschedules or cancellations .

I started to fly back in 2006 and since then i got hooked by the sport. I become a paragliding instructor by the Greek Air Sport Federation in 2012 and the same year i set up the Cretan Paragliding school. I participate in Greek and international competitions, and i have been many times on the podium and i am an active member of the National Greek Paragliding team. I enjoy to share the feeling of excitement and happiness that a flight offers. In my free time, i like to hike, swim and sailing. But mostly, you will find me on the air!

Where you'll be

Take to the Skies and Experience Chania, Varipetro and More…

Our backyard mountain! Close to Chania, the mountain that every local pilot and student of our paragliding school makes his/her first flights!

This is the home of paragliding in Crete. Experience incredible views of the entire northern coastline including Chania city, Souda Bay and a small lake. There are often thermals that we can catch to reach altitudes of over 1000 meters.

First of all, you must know, I am terrified of heights!!! To conquer my fears and experience something truly special at the end of our time in Greece, my husband and I booked this paragliding trip. Honestly, it’s one of the coolest things I’ve ever done in my life! Yannis is a true professional, and ensures you feel absolutely safe and cared for from start to finish! I promise, once you take off, this is not scary at all! It’s pure freedom! Book this experience, you won’t regret it!

Mon mari a fait du parapente avec Yannis. Super expérience. Yannis est vraiment sympa et connaît bien son sujet. Aucun souci à signaler, on sent qu'on peut lui faire confiance. Le vol est magnifique tout comme le trajet pour arriver au spot pour le décollage. À faire et à refaire!

It was my first time flying, and I had a wonderful time. Yannis and his assistant are both great people, fun, good company, and excellent at what they do. The ride up the mountain is as spectacular as the flight. Highly recommended!
