Chania: Paragliding Tandem Flight

1. Chania: 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. In rare cases, weather might make your landing a little faster. In this case, you'll experience a bum landing. Your instructor is equipped to handle this special landing and any other issue that may arise.

What people are saying about Crete

We can recommend this experience one hundred percent. Great care from start to finish. Even the journey to the departure point was a small mountain safari with a beautiful landscape. Taking off was very easy. The flight at the same altitude with eagles and falcons in the best weather was breathtaking. Our guide Yannick gave us so much confidence and explained all the activities to us in detail. We always knew what was being done and why. You have forgotten everything around you and fully concentrated on the flight. A feeling of freedom without restrictions. One of the most beautiful flight experiences of our lives.

This is a must do in Chania if you want to have a bucket list experience. Yannis is so helpful and kind and makes you feel totally safe and secure during take off, flying and landing. The drive up to the take off is also spectacular. One note - if you tend to get motion sickness i.e. in a car or boat - paragliding has the same effect. Ensure to take medication pre-flight for the best experience. Thank you Yannis!!!

Sublime flight with Yannis (15 years of experience) and his extremely nice colleague. The duration of the flight was long. My partner still has plenty of eyes on him and memories are in his head. Top top top.

It was breathtaking and relaxing! Yannis and the team were incredibly kind and helpful. I loved every moment! It is an experience that cannot be missed. Thanks for the lovely memories!

I felt very safe and never felt unprofessional. I can only recommend!
