Situated on Turkey’s Turquoise Coast, Fethiye promises spectacular coastal panoramas. The nearby 6,460-foot (1,969-meter) mountain of Babadag provides a near-perfect launching point for paragliders, who come from all over to free fly over the Mediterranean. Here’s what you can expect from a paragliding experience in Fethiye.
Take off from the mountain summit using a smooth, paved launch platform.
Enjoy the freeing sensation of flying and the sound of the wind whistling through the paraglider wings, as you soar through the air for a half-hour or more.
Take in bird’s-eye views of the toy-size villages, white-sand beaches, and boat-dotted harbors below.
Spot glittering Blue Lagoon, island-dotted Gulf of Fethiye, and—on a clear day—the Greek island of Rhodes in the distance.
Feel safe and secure during a tandem flight with an experienced, certified pilot, and get an extra thrill as your pilot performers twists, turns, and other tricks.
After landing directly on the beach, stick around to watch other paragliders putting on a display in the skies above.
Attend the annual Ölüdeniz Air Games, held every October, to see skilled paragliders as well as skydivers, BASE jumpers, and other air sports practitioners, at work.
