Where to parafly in Northern Cyprus?

Updated: 3 months ago

Paragliding is perhaps the best view of the island. Plus, of course, the thrill and adrenaline. We discuss where you can fly in tandem with an instructor or solo.

Paragliding is largely monopolized by the company Highline Paragliding, which has been organizing this activity for 20 years - since 2003. Using the services of this company, you can fly in tandem, and if you can do it yourself, then solo, renting equipment and obtaining the necessary permits (this is necessary because of the many military bases on the heights).

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT PARAGLIDING IN NORTHERN CYPRUS

Can I fly over Karpas in tandem with an instructor?

Unfortunately, no. Due to the low height, this spot is only available for solo flights. But you can fly in tandem from Mount Beshbarmak, and the views there will be more impressive due to the greater height.

Do I need special skills for the first paragliding flight?

If we are talking about a tandem flight - no. The instructor does all the work, you just have to look around enthusiastically.

Can I take photos and videos during the flight?

The instructor will also do this for you - capture in photos and videos not just the views around, but you against this beauty, so get ready to change your profile photo on social networks!
