Paragliding in Fethiye
Babadag Paragliding SiteBabadag 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.
Jumping Points at BabadagThere 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 ViewJust 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 SoloAlthough 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.
