Chania: 20 Minute Paragliding Tandem Flight

2. Chania: 20 Minute 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

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.

Highly recommended, far away from the main roads through the mountains with interesting stops at an old olive oil factory, a local coffee and a modern oil press. Also absolutely suitable for beginners.

Super cool and fun tour through the stunning mountains and landscapes of Crete. Our guide had a good sense of humor and kept us entertained during the whole trip. Definitely recommend!

We had a lot of fun on the tour! Highly recommended. We drove off-road as well as on the road and had a great view.
