Chania: 20 Minute Paragliding Tandem Flight

1. 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 Chania Regional Unit

We had a lot of fun on the mini tour. The guide took great photos of us in the 3D world. And the 9D movie was a great trip into the mionic world thanks to the moving seats. Since there were only two of us at that time, the projectionist asked us if we would like to see another 9D film, which we of course answered in the affirmative. We were then allowed to experience a roller coaster ride through the wild west and the gold mines of that time. Although only 30 minutes in total, the visit was definitely worth it.

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!!!

This was a great afternoon activity. The owner is super nice and friendly. The area to do SUP is very nice - beautiful water and beach. Snorkeling we didn't see much. Best part was the natural clay spa!

Super friendly hosts, loved the experience - snorkelling, cave jumping, SUP!

Friendly staff, good equipment, nice setting, fun activities.
