Full description
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.

    Yannis is a very kind, friendly and experienced guide. We felt safe with him at all times. The equipment was in a perfect condition! The paragliding was a great experience and we had perfect weather and a fantastic view. Definitely a must-do! Thank you so much for flying with us Yannis! :)

    I booked a flight with my boyfriend. The flight was postponed by one day due to the weather, but this only shows that the organizers care about everyone's safety. We were picked up at the meeting point and drove up the mountain, where we were well instructed about everything. You fly one after the other about 1-2 minutes apart and then glide past each other again and again in the air. The launch was very easy and gliding in the air was also very pleasant. Those who want a little more adrenaline can experience a few maneuvers that were really fun. I felt very safe throughout the flight and would recommend it to anyone. Thank you Yannis!

    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.
