Paragliding

There are two paragliding centers in Lycia: Oludeniz (near Fethiye) and Kaş.

Oludeniz is one of the best places in the world for paragliding and in the last ten years has become a mecca for paragliders from all over the world.  Incredible thermals and ideal conditions make for amazing flights from Babadag Mountain down to beautiful Oludeniz beach with its long stretch of white sand and turquoise blue water.

The company Sky Sports in Oludeniz is a very good company that offers tandem paragliding, courses, mountain transfers and more.  They have kindly provided the photos shown on this page.  Please see their website for more details and photos.

The International Oludeniz Air Games Festival is held every year at Oludeniz beach.  Lots of fun stuff to do and see.

Kaş also offers spectacular paragliding over the mountains and sea.  You can see my photo below.  Tandem paragliding isn't scary and is surprisingly relaxing.  And I'm usually frightened of heights.
