Tandem flight spots

Take to the Skies and Experience Chania, Varipetro and More…

Our backyard mountain! Close to Chania, the mountain that every local pilot and student of our paragliding school makes his/her first flights!

This is the home of paragliding in Crete. Experience incredible views of the entire northern coastline including Chania city, Souda Bay and a small lake. There are often thermals that we can catch to reach altitudes of over 1000 meters.


We’ll take-off from Varipetro which is close to Chania,almost 500 meters above sea level. This is where every local pilot learns to fly, and where most of our students take their first flights. Please note that we need a northerly wind direction in order to fly from Varipetro.
