Ölüdeniz is the most outstanding paragliding spot known in Turkey and far beyond. In fact, this small and scenic village nestled on the Mediterranean coast is renowned as one of the word's best paragliding destination. Of course, it's even more popular for its gorgeous white pebble beaches, turquoise and aquamarine sea, and mountainous landscapes, and most travellers come here for a beach vacation, but it's hardly bearable to lie in the sun and passively watch all that flying excitement overhead... A curious and a little jealous human nature will probably raise you up for that aerial adventure. You don't have to be professional in this kind of sports, for tandem paragliding involves gliding with a pilot's assistance.
When you check out Turkey Paragliding Map, you'll discover it's covered with the spots all over its area, but the greatest density is located in the lower left part, in other words—in the south-west, including widely praised Ölüdeniz. Other paragliding places in Turkey include Kaş, Antalya, Alanya, Bursa, Izmir, Ankara, Isparta, and more. The weather conditions are favourable between mid-spring to mid-autumn, so paragliding season is April to October.
