Full description
Take flight from the 6,500-foot peak of Babadağ Mountain and enjoy thrilling aerial views as you swoop over the azure waters and rocky peaks. Your 30-40 minute flight is sure to be a highlight of your vacation and you’ll be accompanied by a professional pilot, so there’s no need to be nervous – just sit back and enjoy the views.  Begin your experience with a pick-up from your hotel in Fethiye and travel in an air-conditioned coach or minivan to Babadağ Mountain. This 6,500-ft peak looms over Ölüdeniz beach and the Blue Lagoon, one of Turkey’s most photographed spots and 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. Put on 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 enjoy the 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. While in the air you'll also be able to take photos. As you float, enjoy exciting 360-degree turns 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 Ölüdeniz beach. Then, relish the memories of your adventure on your drive back to Fethiye, where your experience ends with a hotel drop off.
