Feel free as a bird, gaze from dizzying heights at the cities below, glide through the rising air streams over the mountains with Paragliding in Side. You’ve seen it many times on social media videos and it’s always been someone else, but it’s possible right now! And it’s not as scary as it looks. Even the most hesitant dare. Let’s go paragliding from Side.
We will pick you up from your hotel and drive to Alanya. Afterwards, our pilot will provide all your equipment and give you pre-flight briefing. You will be flying in a paraglider with an experienced instructor (indicate when booking if you want a female instructor). The flight lasts about 30 minutes, altitude up to 700 metres.
Whilst the wonderful resort of Side has plenty of activities on offer and keep you entertained throughout your holiday, one thing missing is to fly by paragliding. Well, not to panic, you can now make a short journey to the neighbouring Alanya where you will be able to take to the skies and soar like a bird on the thermals as you combine excitement and adventure with sightseeing and culture on this ‘not to be missed’ tour.
You will take off from Yassi Tepe just outside of Alanya and fly in tandem with a professional pilot. Once you reach the heights you will fly over the famous beach of Cleopatra and be able to see the golden sands stretching out for miles along Turkey’s stunning southern coast. You will be flanked by the Taurus Mountains rising behind you as you look out to sea and the horizon.
You will run a few short steps before launching from the mountainside and catching your first thermal, a rush unlike any other and certainly not for the feint-hearted. This is an ideal way to fully appreciate the countryside and natural beauty of the region while embarking upon an energy filled adventure!
