If you are coming with a friend or partner who does not fly there are plenty of options and beaches to explore nearby.





Drama, Prosotsani and the general area
Drama is situated in North Eastern Greece, in the Macedonia region, close to the border of Bulgaria and approximately 115km NE of Thessaloniki. Our accommodation is based in the town of Prosotsani - 15km west along the main road and closer to the main take-off we use at Pyrgi. Prosotsani has a population of around 9,000, with all the local amenities you would expect to support a town of that size - shops, supermarkets, restaurants, bars etc, and also an open air swimming pool with some water slides on the edge of town. 




















Weather
North Eastern Greece generally has relatively warm, dry summers, with a prevailing light Northerly wind bringing dry air from the land mass above. Cloudbase is typically 2,500-3000m during the summer. The terrain provides plenty of good thermal triggers, and climbs of 3-5m/s are typical.
