Flying like a bird over the beautiful Olu Deniz Beach and the Blue Lagoon gives you a different perspective to the glorious beaches and coastline of Turkey. This journey begins with transport from your Kusadasi Hotel and along the Southern coast of Turkey to the town of Fethiye. As you travel across two provinces you will notice the landscape changing and becoming positively more Mediterranean as you travel.
From Fethiye you will head up to the stunning Baba Dağ mountain, home to the paragliding base and gateway to the most amazing vista you are ever likely to see in your lifetime.
Tandem paragliding is probably the safest way to fly. While you take your run from the top of Baba Dağ you will begin to feel the adrenalin as you soar over the coastline below. The tandem rider will control your flight, enabling the thermal winds to bring you slowly down to earth on no less than Olu Deniz beach itself. One of the most photographed beaches in Turkey, you will understand its glamour as you gently land on the soft white sands, amid the sunbathers and the lapping shoreline.
In 2023, price of Kusadasi Tandem Paragliding is 175 €. Flight duration is between 20 to 45 minutes depending on the thermals and wind speed.
Your day begins at around 07:00 when you will be transferred from your hotel to Fethiye and Baba Dağ, by comfortable air conditioned transport. When you reach Fethiye and climb the 2,000 metres above sea level required for the take off. At the centre you will have a little time to enjoy the view from the top, and to partake in instruction from your guide and tandem rider. When you are harnessed and ready, it will be time to take the run and fly through the thermals, together, bringing you slowly down to Olu Deniz beach. Give your self a warm congratulations on your first successful paragliding adventure.
