If you think the view of Lefkada’s spectacular west coast is awesome from the sea, imagine what it looks like when paragliding! This is a sport that has become very popular in Lefkada during the past 15 years, with most take-offs being made above the areas of Kathisma, Kalamitsi and Nydri. You simply sit yourself in the harness, take a run-up and launch yourself, both literally and figuratively. The bird’s eye view of the island and its seemingly endless beaches, washed by the blue waters of the Ionian, is simply divine. Best of all… you don’t need any training; you can enjoy the view as a passenger on a tandem flight with an experienced pilot. And when your pilot begins to dive and swoop the thrill is unforgettable, as too is the gradual landing.
