Spot Location

Velia paragliding spot is located on the Mt Velia, almost 35min drive from Kalavrita. The road to the spot consists of both asphalt and mountainous surfaces and is accessible by all types of vehicles. The take-off point is at an altitude of approximately 1.550m and you can choose to either fly to southeast and southwest into the Louson valley, or north, west and northwest towards Kalavrita. The flight offers stunning views of valleys and mountains , the small towns and historical monuments of the area. The spot can be visited all year round and is considered among the most popular ones due to the ideal wind conditions that make gaining height, during your flight, very easy. That is why the spot is frequently used for paragliding competitions.

Paragliding requires specific equipment and techniques that must be adapted to the natural environment. For this reason it is strongly advised that you check regularly our ‘Schools / Clubs’ section, in order to get in contact with nearby qualified instructors, that will introduce you safely to this exciting activity. Although, paragliding schools will provide you with all necessary technical equipment, we encourage you to  visit our ‘Equipment Shops’ section, in order to choose your technical apparel. Furthermore, we highly recommend you to visit our ‘Accommodation’ section, for nearby accommodation arrangements.
