Paragliding in Fethiye

Paragliding in Fethiye
Forbes Magazine listed paragliding in Fethiye as “One Of The 10 Things That You Should Do Before You Die”.

Babadag Paragliding Site

Babadag Mountain stands 1969m high and is one of the most important paragliding centres in the world; we highly recommend you to try it during your trip to Fethiye.
Babadag is located next to the popular village of Oludeniz and the take-off point is 20km from the centre of Fethiye at an altitude of 1700m. Climbing the mountain is only possible using 4x4 vehicles and the journey takes around 45 minutes. Due to weather conditions the best and safest time to jump is from the beginning of April until the end of October.

Jumping Points at Babadag

There are three jumping points used and the main one is at 1700m as it gets the south wind and is the largest with a capacity of up to 20 parachutes. If there is insufficient wind here it’s possible to climb up to 1800 or 1900m although at 1800m it’s very steep so 1900m is usually preferred.  

The View

Just a few minutes after taking off you are rewarded with the magnificent view of Oludeniz and Belcekiz, followed by Kayakoy, Ovacik and the bay of Fethiye.  After flying for 40 or 60 minutes you come to land on Belcekiz Beach in Oludeniz

Flying Solo 

Although the majority of flights allowed are tandem flights using a professional trainer, qualified paragliders who hold an international certificate can fly solo and during the Air Festival held in October, Babadag hosts many professionals from all around the World.
