KAIMAKTSALAN (Ski centre) EDESSA
At the foot of the mountain Voras and at a distance of 28 kilometers from Edessa, the Windsport Center of Macedonia-Thrace is located. It was founded in 1976 on the initiative of the Aviation Club of Edessa.
The ideal conditions for the exercise in wind sports that prevail, with favorable upward currents for glidering and with dynamic currents in a mountainside for parapente, contributed decisively to the international acknowledgement of the Center and to the attraction of a considerable number of wind-sport fanatics in the region.
One of the most important activities that the Aviation Club of Edessa exercises is the operation of a pilot school, while the organization of national championship contests of parapente, as well as the demonstrations of acrobatic sail-flying and the famous "Kite Festival" on Shrove Monday stand out.
The visitors have the opportunity to enjoy the unique thrills that wind-sports offer, seizing the possibility even for a flight on a sailplane or parachute, while all the preconditions for a pleasant stay are fulfilled in the guesthouse of the Center and in the traditional facilities of the neighboring villages.
