Enjoy an exciting forty to fifty (40’ to 50’) minute tandem paragliding flight around Meteora rocks! Whether you are familiar with paragliding activity or not, this flight provides enough time to your needs. Fly to the skies and take your time to experience the thrill and excitement of having landscapes under your feet!
It is by far probably one of the most exhilarating adventure sports in the region of Thessaly.
No matter how nervous you might feel before takeoff (or for some, even the very thought of paragliding), the experienced team will put you at ease. No other activity would let you enjoy spectacular panoramas of the Meteora pillars with no windows to block your view!
Once you are in the air enjoy a birds eye view of one of the most astonishing landmark of the world!
All year round, depends on weather conditions
As the activity is weather dependable, exact flying location will be decided a few hours prior to the activity. Meeting point is near Kalampaka – Meteora, on site, where the take off is arranged to take place, according to weather conditions.
For age 7 to 70 years young! Should have good health condition, no fitness requirement.
WHAT TO WEAR
Please bring sensible, good, closed shoes (running shoes/trainers/sneakers– whatever you like to call them). Mountain and hiking boots are even better. Any kind of sandal, Croc, flip flop, flopflip, or anything that flips or flops is NOT good. Clothing-wise, wear shorts if its hot, but generally Jeans and a T-shirt with a windbreaker is the best bet. We include everything needed for the flight (helmets and all flying equipment) as well as water, suntan lotion, snacks and refreshments. Naturally, it’s best is to drink lots of water and use that suntan lotion before arriving.
THINGS TO BRING
Sun-block (sunscreen) and hat (it’s often sunny and we don’t want you getting sunburned!) and drinking water.
GUESTS OR SPECTATORS
Spectators can wait on the ground
Tandem paragliding gives you an amazing sense of freedom. Once in the air, most people are surprised at how relaxed they feel. You’ll sit comfortably upright (like on your sofa at home). You won’t feel like you’re sinking or falling at all, since you glide, nearly horizontally, through the air at around 40 km/hr.
In optimal weather conditions you even have the chance to fly the paraglider yourself! Your instructor will place his hands above yours to show you how to steer. It really is quite simple and really, really fun! This, like the aerobatics before landing, are completely optional of course!
Paragliding is a flying sport, flying sport can be risky. Before flying make sure that you understand the risks involved.
