Babadag (Father Mountain) towering above Oludeniz on the Southwest coast of Turkey is a geological marvel that just happens to make for incredible thermals and ideal conditions for paragliding flight. Oludeniz is reputedly the best site in Europe, if not the world, to fly pargliders cross-country in both solo and tandem modes.
We offer you the tandem paragliding experience of a lifetime, for many people a dream come true. Picture yourself, comfortably seated, gracefully gliding above the scenic mountainside and lagoon, feeling the light breeze on your face whilst you and your pilot soar high over Oludeniz beach packed with hot and sweaty sunbathers!
This rare opportunity to take off from such a fantastic backdrop as Babadag, offering the breathtaking view over Oludeniz lagoon, a spectacle in itself, coupled with the opportunity to fly tandem for up to 45 minutes, virtually unheard of in any other location in the world, all adds up to ensuring the trip of a lifetime, and one not to be missed.
Your journey to the take off point is an experience in itself. From Oludeniz beach, a 50 minute ‘jeep safari’ gives you the unrivalled opportunity to take in the extraordinarily beautiful Turkish mountainside scenery and the stunning flora and fauna it has to offer.
We fly four times a day, every day from April to November.
So what is it all about?
In brief, your pilot will launch you from a hillside under a canopy that resembles a parachute but acts like a rigid wing. Once inflated overhead, you will take just a few steps, or a short run to take off from the gentle slope, the wind will catch the canopy and you will be airborne. Once in the air, complete control over direction and speed gives your pilot the freedom to soar ridges, rise on warm currents of air and cover distances.
