  You will trek through wild forests and country, jeep safari over mountains and to lakes, white water raft down grade four rapids, mountain bike, canyon climbing, party, sea kayaking, Turkish bath and beach barbeque. This holiday has it all. This area offers a huge variety of landscapes to explore: limestone mountains over 2000m high, clear blue wild-flowing rivers, deep rocky canyons; cool forests of pine and sycamore; and one of the best beaches on the Med, the famous 'Turtle Beach' at Iztuzu, Dalyan. In addition the region is full of history, in particular the ancient city and rock tombs of Caunos at Dalyan. Generally 4-6 hours of activity per day. A unique combination of outdoor activities designed to offer you the enjoyment of Turkey’s rich wonders of nature.

Day 1 - Dalyan – Iztuzu – Caunos (D)

Dalyan (base of the activities) Arrival at Dalaman Airport. Transfer to Dalyan, a charming fishing town, situated next to a meandering river that winds down through a broad delta of tall bulrushes to Iztuzu beach. This golden sand is famed for being one of only a few nesting sites of the endangered Caretta Caretta turtles. Dalyan is also noted for its 4th century BC Lycian rock tombs, carved high in the cliff opposite the town, and for the ruins of the ancient city Caunos. Overnight in Dalyan.

Day 2 – Trekking - Ekincik (B) (L) (D)

Trekking. The next day we walk over a hill to the bay of Ekincik and its unspoilt beach. It is difficult to access by road and so most visitors arrive by yacht. The route we take allows us to explore the ancient ruins of Caunos, with its Roman Baths, Acropolis, harbour and many other ruins including a Medieval castle. We walk through pine forests, which hug the dramatic coastline and arrive in Ekincik for a special picnic lunch followed by relaxing swimming in the azure crystal waters of the Mediterranean. During walk observe charming villages with the people going about their daily life, relatively untouched by tourism. The journey back is by local wooden boat, which takes one and a half hours along the rugged coastline, around Iztuzu beach and winding along the river under the ancient rock tombs to Dalyan.

Day 3 – Jeep Safari  (B) (L) (D)

Jeep Safari. From Dalyan we travel past forests of the frankincense tree before climbing the Boga Dagi 2000m mountain to the high plateau village of Agla. Along the way we have the opportunity to view the flora and fauna of the region and visit a special lake where we have lunch. Wildflowers are plentiful in the springtime and the cool mountain air of Agla provides a respite from the summer heat of the coast. Overnight in the small village of Akkropru where an old Roman bridge spans the Dalaman river. Overnight in cottages or tents.

Day 4 – Rafting  (B) (L) (D)

Rafting Enjoy rafting in the Dalaman River; its grade 3-4 white water rapids (rivers are graded from 1 to 6; 1 being flat, 6 being impassable). At the river base, meet the guides who explain the day ahead and equip you with life jackets and helmets, before the 90 minutes driver on remote forest roads to the Maden Kopru, where the river is crossed by one of its bridges. Here rafts are unloaded, you are equipped with your gear, and the guide explains what to do in the raft. Each raft carries up to six people and is under the control of an expert guide. The route passes through a remote area of narrow gorges and pine forests and finally under the arches of a 2000 year old Roman bridge, Akkopru. Overnight in Dalyan.

Day 5 –Dalyan - Koycegiz (B) (L) (D)

Mountain-biking A biking tour through the countryside around Dalyan and Koycegiz passing through groves of aromatic ‘liquid amber’ trees, a species found nowhere else in the world, where you can swim in cool, clear water. The route passes through several small villages and is via mainly a flat and quiet road. Approximately 45 km in total. Overnight stay in Dalyan.

Day 6- Canyoning (B) (L) (D)

Canyoning. An hour jeep ride takes us to a unique canyon. We swim under waterfalls, in rock pools and scramble over boulders until the going gets steeper. Then we use climbing gear to scale shear waterfalls and huge boulders, which block our path. The cool air and the crashing sound of the cold, crystal, and flowing water add to the atmosphere and adventure of the canyon climb. After our descent and return to Dalyan, we rest.

Day 7- Sea Kayaking (B) (L) (D)

Sea Kayaking Explore the reed beds and surroundings of Koycegiz Lake, a paradise for wildlife such as turtles and birds; discover islands and forgotten ruins, the healing waters of natural sulfur hot springs and the channels of the delta of the Dalyan River, which flows out of the lake. Overnight in Dalyan.

Day 8- Shopping  (B) (L) (D)

A beach BBQ follows shopping in the local market. The local market has many stalls selling (genuine-fake) brand name watches, clothes, leather goods, shoes and spices, all at extremely cheap prices. On the beach we consume very generous portions Ali’s famous BBQ until we are only able to lie down and relax. In the evening we go to a Hamam, or Turkish Bath, where we have a sauna, skin exfoliation and massage, leaving us feeling completely revitalized and fresh.

Day 9- Dalyan (B) (L) (D)

Reluctantly, we say good-bye and transfer back to the airport.
