Sky diving is a fantastic sport to practise in Greece. In fact, it has become very popular over the last couple of decades among both locals and tourists. Ski diving centres in Greece are found in the mainland, close to the two largest cities: Athens and Thessaloniki. There are no sky diving centres in the islands. Greece sky diving centres offer both tandem jumps and sky dive training courses if you wish to become an instructor. The tandem jump is actually one time sky diving experience attached to the instructor.
Sky diving centres in Greece
Here are the two main sky diving centres in Greece that will help you see this fantastic country from the sky!
SkyDive Athens opened in autumn 2014 and is the only sky diving centre in Greece that operates every day all year round, flying a 18 seated turbine aircraft to 14000ft (4200m) in only 10 minutes. Their base is found in the region of Kastro, central Greece, which is easy to reach from Athens by car or by public bus in about 90 minutes. Try a tandem jump and live the thrill of skydiving in sunny and warm Greece!
The passenger exits the plane at an altitude of 4200m (14000ft) while safely attached to our experienced tandem master with a special harness. In order to relive the experience, SkyDive Athens offers 2 different video and photos options: one option from the handy-cam on the instructor's wrist or a freefall camera man. You will take the videos and photos with you on a USB.
Hellenic Skydivers jump on weekends and official Greek holidays at the airport of Megera, about 30 min drive from the centre of Athens. Occasionally they operate from Polykastro airfield, which is found on the northern side of Greece, close to Thessaloniki. They offer skydiving training for beginners and experienced skydivers plus tandem jumps attached to an experienced instructor.
