Experience the thrill of paragliding in Megara, where you’ll discover the newest and most accessible form of individual flight known as parapente, or paragliding.
Paragliding involves using a specialized parachute and launching from elevated slopes to harness the uplifting currents of the wind. With its sleek aerodynamic design and the pilot’s weight, the wing offers remarkable flight characteristics, enabling pilots to take advantage of mountain airflows and atmospheric updrafts for short, initial flights and later, as experience grows, longer, more adventurous journeys.
Recognized as an official sport by the Greek state in the late 1990s, paragliding falls under the purview of the General Secretariat of Sports through the Hellenic Air Sports Federation, ensuring safety and regulation.
