Paragliding in Cappadocia
Tandem paragliding is the new adrenaline–filled recreational sport in Cappadocia.
Every experience is different because you are dependent on the wind for direction, but as takeoff is in the central area for fairy chimneys, rock formations and valleys of Cappadocia that are on UNESCO’S World Heritage List you are guaranteed an awesome panorama every time.
Don’t worry, you will not be on your own; an experienced pilot will take the controls so you can enjoy the experience fully.
There is no hill climbing involved because you are elevated by a tow to a height of 550–850 meters, and in summer the thermals may take you even higher as you soar like an eagle.
You can choose a smooth flight, or if you want more thrills the skilled pilot can take acrobatic moves to get your adrenaline racing.
Flights generally last between 10 and 20 minutes depending on the winds and your acrobatic moves, and take place every hour from dawn to dusk, all year round.
Paragliding is possible from Early Morning ’til Sunset
Early morning in Cappadocia is very peaceful; gliding over the rock formations before breakfast is surely one of the best ways to start the day.
A daytime flight is for you if you don't like getting up early or have a spare few hours before your airport transfer leaves or after your airport transfer arrives in Cappadocia; an absolutely unforgettable arrival or departing activity.
Sunset is absolutely the best time for paragliding; floating over the fairy chimneys and valleys of Cappadocia as the sun slowly descends is the best ever end to the day.
