The first extreme sports festival of Turkey, Falcon Fest, started on 4 August 2018 in Samsun. This will be the second Falcon Fest which will be held in Sahinkaya Canyon in Vezirkopru district of Samsun. The Festival is organized by the Metropolitan Municipality of Samsun and SAMTAB.
On the first day of the festival, which will continue until 9 August, canoe, dragon boat, paragliding, slackline, rock climbing, trekking and mountain biking activities were carried out. Paramotor and base jump shows couldn’t be done due to the windy weather. A total of 350 sportsmen from 9 different countries will participate in the festival.
Governor Kaymak stated that ‘within the scope of this festival, extreme and high adrenaline generating sports are exercised in Sahinkaya Canyon. The nature of the area is suitable for these kinds of sports. We hope that Vezirkopru and Samsun will be popular for these activities. There was an active participation to the festival. Many Turkish and foreign sportsmen came here, and this also makes us happy.’
