PARAGLIDING

PARAGLIDING

Fokida because of its geomorphology, constitutes an ideal destination for paragliding. The co-existence of such massif mountains and the sea, create excellent conditions for gliding and it is this combination that provides the pilots with a diversity of landscapes and images of incomparable beauty, as the flight over the Fokida mountains yields a constant view of the Corinthian Gulf. Starting from different points of take–off, gives one the opportunity to admire different aspects of natural scenery. Along with our experienced English spoken trainer/escort (a Greek champion) you can have a minimum 20-minute ride and you can:

  • Enjoy the view of the mountainous archaeological site of Delfi.
  • Comprehend the uniqueness of our olive grove since it is the largest adjacent orchard in our country with more than 1.200.000 ancient trees.
  • Have a full view of our town and gulf.

Because we have to take advantage of updraft wind and temperature, this cannot be done on any time of day.

Scheduled Hours: 10:00-20:00 and always 24 hours notice in advance.
