8. Ölüdeniz: 2-Hour Tandem Paragliding Experience
Ölüdeniz is not only famous for its laid-back tourism and its natural beauty, the magnificent mountain of Babadağ, which forms a dramatic backdrop to the resort, has made it one of the most popular places for paragliding in the world. Visit Ölüdeniz during the summer months and you’ll nearly always see colorful canopies flying high above you, floating effortlessly through the air before they and the people they’re carrying make a smooth landing on the beach.
Look closely and you’ll see that, although some are solo pilots, most are tandem paragliders with experienced pilots at the controls; its they who take care of all the practical things, while you are having the experience of a lifetime. Located on the coast at 1960 meters, Babadağ is pretty unique, and flying like a bird from one of the several take-offs close to the summit, you’ll be sure to have an awesome paragliding experience too, and one that you’ll always remember.
So, if like many thousands of other visitors every year, you’ve been thinking just maybe you would like to do this too, you can. But please, remember to book first, and of course, you can only fly if the weather conditions are just right. The team has a safety record second to none. With the emphasis always on safety and exacting company procedure, the experienced and highly qualified pilots fly using only top quality equipment, which is professionally certified and maintained and what’s more, they never fly more than five times a day. Men, women and children of all ages are welcomed to ensure that everyone who flies will have the best experience possible.
