Animal's Up & Down Ultimate Safari 2019
The best day of your holiday starts when your colourful Animal bus picks you up from your accommodation. We will head off in convoy to our meeting point where you will receive information about your fun filled day and have a Health & Safety briefing.
Setting off, we take a stunning and hair raising drive up to Babadağ Mountain. The 1700m summit is one of the most popular paragliding venues in the world and here you will have free time to admire the outstanding views and watch the paragliders take to the air and fly over the famous Blue Lagoon. Refreshments are available from the newly opened Babadağ 1700 Grill & Bar.
Your professionally qualified and experienced pilot will then join you for your amazing tandem paragliding experience. After you have been given your safety briefing and instructions, you will take to the air for one of the most amazing experiences of your lifetime. As you fly, (yes fly!) off the mountain and over the sea you will be in awe of the breathtaking views of Ölüdeniz and the Blue Lagoon, you may even glimpse the sea turtles swimming in the clear blue waters. Your flight lasts about 30 minutes where you will land in the resort of Ölüdeniz.
Please ensure you bring your mobile phone or camera and hand these to your pilot prior to your takeoff. The pilot will transfer the photos and videos taken during your flight to your device using their GoPro cameras for you to view and purchase if you choose to (extra charge).
With your feet back on solid ground, we will arrange for you to be collected and meet up at the amazing Kayaköy Ghost Town Museum Village adopted by UNESCO as a World Friendship and Peace Village.
Lebessos Restaurant is the next stop for our wonderful lunch where you have a choice of mains. This 400-year-old stone building houses a traditional restaurant and wine cellar, containing hundreds of bottles of Turkey's finest wines. Drinks available at extra charge.
You will then have free time to walk through Kayaköy Ghost Town Museum Village, attend a free wine tasting session or browse the souvenir shops before we depart for Gemiler Beach. On route to Gemiler, we take in beautiful views of the bay and of St Nicholas Island before arriving at the beach for our Speed & Swim tour.
You will board your piloted Speed Boat and travel around the bays for approximately 1 hour, taking in a couple of swim breaks in the crystal clear blue waters before heading back to the beach. Here you can chill, swim, try some watersports or have refreshments at the beachside cafe.
The day winds down with the chance to peruse and purchase the crazy photos taken by our world class photographer, before a leisurely drive, returning you to your accommodation.
