Paragliding spots

Paragliding is a weather dependent sport, and Crete is known for the strong winds. Consequently, there are two different paragliding spots near Chania, depending on the wind condition.  

Falasarna: One of the most famous beaches in Greece. You will soar from a hill at 250m with incredible views before landing on the beach! You can enjoy a beer or a dive in the clear waters of Falasarna after the flight.

West winds required for a flight in Falasarna.

From Falasarna you can have the 1-hour thermal flight over the magnificent Balos lagoon. Balos lagoon is a beach of extreme beauty linking an island with the mainland. The red colored sand can be found in Balos and you have a chance to admire nature's miracle - Balos. Paragliding over Balos lagoon is the ultimate way to visit Balos and take a look at its beauty.

Varipetro: A mainland mountain. With heights of 500 m, you will have incredible views to the entire north coastline, Chania city, Souda bay, and a small lake. In that place, you can often reach altitudes greater than 1000m due to the thermal winds.

This was the highlight of our trip to Crete. From take off to touching down, you will enjoy the most beautiful views. Taking off gets the adrenaline running, and then sit back and enjoy the ride.

Great way to experience the skies - no motor, no noise, and because you sit in front you even feel like you're on your own (without having to go through the training!). Definitely recommended!
