Tandem flight spots

Enjoy Heraklion from Above with Flights from Avdou

Join us as we take you on a trip from one of the top paragliding spots in the world. Heraklion is a region with its own climate, making it flyable year-round. From the moment you take to the air, there are stunning views to enjoy stretching from one horizon to the other, and it’s likely that we’ll have vultures join us on our flight.


We’ll fly over a beautiful lake and countryside often reaching altitudes of over 1200m for spectacular aerial views over the cities of Heraklion, Hersonissos, Malia and all the way along the northern coastline. If you’re lucky, and the visibility is perfect, we’ll even be able to spot Santorini!


This is a great, convenient option for those staying in Heraklion, Hersonissos, Malia and the surrounding towns.
