The best thing about paragliding in Bursa is the variety of options as there are several take-offs close to each other, covering all wind directions. Conditions are generally mellow, with not too strong winds and some really pleasant afternoon thermals.

The Destination

Bursa is a major tourist centre with the thermal baths being used for therapeutic purposes since the Roman times. It lies in the northwestern Anatolia, within the Marmara Region. It is the fourth most populous city in Turkey and one of the most industrialized metropolitan centres in the country. The city is also the administrative centre of Bursa Province. It attracts attention not only for its cultural heritage but also for its outstanding natural beauty and historical landmark.

The Experience

We will have a tailor-made tour visiting several spots in the area. It will include some high altitude mountain take-offs and visits to typical villages where we will be tasting some traditional food after the flights. As part of the cultural immersion we will have a chance to visit some mystical and historical parts of Bursa.
