Skydiving in Athens

Soaring over the city from extreme heights, you'll experience a truly remarkable view of the ancient metropolis on skydiving tours in Athens.

Skydiving not only provides an adrenaline rush like no other, but it also gives you a bird's eye perspective of Athens that you can't get anywhere else.

With a professional instructor strapped to you at all times, you can concentrate on enjoying the exhilarating activity and admiring the cityscape from above.

What are the best skydiving tours in Athens?

Skydiving is without doubt the most exhilarating adventure sport in Athens if you're looking for something wild to try. There are a couple of different locations you can start from which both offer their own unique views.

Tandem skydiving from Athens

Tandem skydiving tours take place just outside the city center where you'll be strapped to your instructor, ready to experience a serious thrill. You'll jump from a height of 3,500 meters and hurtle through the sky at adrenaline-spiking speeds of almost 220 kilometers per hour.

After approximately 45 seconds of freefall at this lightning pace, your parachute will open and you'll float gently above the city of Athens. From the air, you'll have a unique and unbeatable view of the city and its surrounding area.

Tandem skydiving in Kastro

If you want to experience even greater heights, this skydiving tour enables you to jump from over 4,200 meters. You'll travel approximately an hour north of Athens to make your jump, which gives you a varied view of the landscape in Greece.

For reassurance on this nail-biting excursion, you'll be secured to an instructor who will allow you to freefall for a minute before opening the parachute.

If you want to see aerial views in a more serene experience, why not try paragliding in Athens?
