Photo Shooting on a Paragliding Flight
While paragliding in Ölüdeniz, it is not allowed to bring any electronic device such as a phone and professional camera with you. Because in the past, such equipment is prohibited due to loss or fall and endangerment of passengers. But your paraglider pilot can take selfies with the landscape without putting anyone in danger with the Go Pro, which is already integrated and fixed to the parachute. In this case, photo and video shooting will be subject to an extra fee. You can find up-to-date paragliding prices and photo shooting fees on our website.
