What an eco-friendly way to take to the skies, and there's nowhere better to do it than in the blue skies of Greece. Paragliding world cup competitions have been held in the country often, with flying success! There are a few favourite spots around the country along with paragliding schools and centres that will teach you all you need to know.
Your reward is true liberation in the sky, along with breathtaking views of valleys, seas and mountains. Every time of year in Greece is ideal for paragliding, although particular takeoff and landing sites may change. From a sunny February to a mountain-cool July, if you're a paraglider you're going to see Greece through a different lens from now on.
