If you’ve ever dreamed of taking a skydive, then you couldn’t ask for a better place to try it than Turkey. The golden landscape and the beautiful Aegean Sea ensure the views on the way up, and the way down, are absolutely spectacular. Of course, for the first minute or so of your jump you won’t really be concentrating on the scenery - it’s all about the incredible buzz of freefall, as you reach speeds of up to 200km/h for around 45 seconds, before the instructor pops the parachute and you gracefully float down the rest of the way.
The location for this skydive is a very unique one - you’ll be jumping above the ancient city of Ephesus, built in the 10th century BC and actually mentioned in the Book of Genesis. You may see treasured ruins, and famous archaeological sites during your descent. And in case you were wondering - you need virtually no training for this skydive. You’ll be jumping with a professional instructor who will take care of almost everything for you. All you need to learn is how to exit the plane, and how to safely land. It couldn’t be any easier to take your first skydive.
