Glide high above sandy beaches and turquoise waters on a paragliding flight. Take in views of majestic mountains on the horizon. Start with a briefing by your instructor and then experience a tandem paraglide, choosing the time of day that suits you best.
What to Expect
You’ll be met at your hotel in Fethiye, Calis Beach, or Ovacik and head out on a 40-minute drive to the top of Baba Dag, 6,500 feet above sea level. Travel by the operator’s comfortable and modern safari truck as you begin your 3-hour paragliding adventure.
Flights are available 5 times per day. The first is at 08:30, with the morning light and very clear air offering the best opportunity for stunning photos. You’ll be able to see more than 200 square kilometers of the beautiful Fethiye scenery.
If you choose the second flight of the day, at 11:00, it’s likely to be the longest due to thermal activity. You take off from 6,500 feet and could reach heights of 9,000-10,000 feet above sea, if you want. The flight lasts about 40 minutes.
The third flight is at 13:30 and is a bit longer due to stronger conditions. With hazy, misty weather, conditions are not as good for photography, but the take-off and landing are easier.
At 15:30, with the fourth flight, the thermal activity is weaker, meaning a smoother flight. It can be a bit hot in the middle of the summer, however.
The day’s last flight, or sunset flight, departs at 17:45. With the sun low behind the island of Rhodes, conditions make for some wonderful sunset photography and a smooth and pleasant flight.
You’ll get a briefing from the instructor on what to do and what not to do, and you’ll receive the appropriate boots and helmet, and a flying suit if the weather is cool.
Typically you’ll fly side-by-side, and close together, making for better pictures of you and your group in the air.
