After a small running jump from roughly 25000 ft (which sounds a lot more terrifying than it is) you will find yourself sailing through the beautiful warm air of North Cyprus with fantastic views over the Mediterranean and beyond, and the best feeling in the world as you descend slowly and gradually, or experience a thrill ride depending on what you ask from your pilot. Truly not to be missed, paragliding in North Cyprus is a once-in-a-lifetime thrill in a one-of-a-kind holiday destination. 

 

Clay Pigeon shooting
