Fly like a bird above the spectacular Blue Lagoon at Ölüdeniz on this epic tandem paragliding experience from Fethiye. Feel the excitement build on route to Babadağ Mountain, the peak that towers over the aquamarine lagoon and Ölüdeniz beach. Then, harness up with a professional pilot for a thrilling paragliding ride. Soar into the sky, ride the warm breezes and marvel at the aerial views as your pilot controls your speed and direction before a gentle touchdown on the beach. Simply exhilarating, and no experience required.Description
Begin your experience with a pickup from your hotel in Fethiye and travel by air-conditioned coach or minivan to Babadağ Mountain.
This 6,500-foot (1,960-meter) peak looms over Ölüdeniz beach and the Blue Lagoon, one of Turkey’s most photographed beauty spots, and is a top paragliding location. It’s also one of the world’s highest takeoff points, making paragliding from here truly special.
After around an hour’s journey, arrive at the takeoff point and absorb the magnificent views. Don your helmet and flying suit, and receive a full safety briefing from the professional, experienced pilot flying tandem with you. Learn how the takeoff involves catching the wind from a slope rather than jumping from a cliff, and how your pilot will control your flight throughout your roughly 30- to 40-minute ride. Specialists will monitor the weather on the day, and also just before takeoff, to ensure the conditions are perfectly safe and right for flying.
Then, make the run-up and thrill as you ascend upwards. After the initial adrenaline rush, soak up the bird’s-eye views of the mountain-ringed lagoon and golden beaches below, and take photos, too. As you float, enjoy exciting 360-degree turns and rise on warm air currents as your pilot steers and controls your chute and catches thermal flows that may extend your ride further.
Finish your flight with a gentle touchdown on sandy Ölüdeniz beach. Then, relish the memories of your adventure on your drive back to Fethiye, where your experience ends with a hotel drop-off.Highlights
