  Explore Turkey the first hand way. Local towns and countryside, aromatic forests and mountain views. A village day takes you to the heart of Turkish culture. All days you return to Dalyan to relax. Suitable for all people as a jeep follows each day. The bikes we use are all comfortable, new, 21 speed mountain bikes and a professional guide takes care of you every day.

Day 1 - Dalyan

Caretta Caretta Tour. 30km On the first day we cycle to the local four and a half kilometer long beach, famously known as the Caretta Caretta beach, where for millions of years the endangered turtles have been nesting. The route is fairly straightforward apart from one mountain where we stop to rest and enjoy lunch. The village where we stop is called Gokbel and has fine views over the beach and river delta.

Day 2 – Village Tour  ( B )

Village Tour. 55km This tour gives you a vivid insight into local Turkish life. We visit numerous villages; sample their local cuisine, tea and their generous amounts of warm hospitality. Cycling through aromatic forests of Frankincense trees, orange trees and over many fresh babbling brooks, we encounter the ancient village of Eskikoy, with its Ottoman houses, mosque and old gardens. Stops will be made for swimming in the ice-cold river and shimmering warm lake.

Day 3- Koycegiz ( B )

Koycegiz and Mud Bath Tour. 60km We sail up the river by traditional Turkish fishing boat to the lake and then on to the small market town of Koycegiz that is situated on the Northern shores of the lake. The journey takes us around the lake through gently sloping cool forests on to the tiny settlement of Sultaniye. In Sultaniye you can bathe in the relaxing hot springs where naturally heated sulphurous waters come steaming up out of the ground. After lunch we cycle further down the lake to the world famous Dalyan mud baths. The naturally occurring mud bubbles up from the ground, and after generous application to your skin and washing it off in the small stream, your skin feels the softest it has ever been. Your skin’s pores open and wrinkles are smoothed away, making you look ten years younger! The last stop of the day is at the ancient city of Caunos where ruins from thousands of years of occupation of this site can be explored. Old rowing boats take us the short journey back across the river to Dalyan.

Day 4- Marmaris – Ekincik - Marmaris  ( B )

Mountain Tour. 35km By jeep we take you 900m up Olmez mountains. At the top historical ruins, built on the once fabled mountain of Olympus, surround us. From here we look down through forests and canyons to the delta and lake gleaming far below. Usually the days are crystal clear in Turkey and so although a long distance away, more often than not the Greek island of Rhodes can be seen on the horizon, as well as the bay of Marmaris. After a tea break we cycle 35km down the mountain through forests and fields to arrive for lunch in Ekincik, a small but stunning little village and beach. After swimming we head back by boat to the Dalyan delta and the town of Dalyan.

Day 5- Dalyan   ( B - D )

Asi Koyu Tour. 50km The start is at a height of 450m on Bozburun Hill overlooking Dalyan and the beach. This is the longest day, but the most rewarding. The idyllic small bay of Asi Koyu is a remote beach out of reach of all but the most determined tourists, as only an experienced local guide who knows the country tracks intimately finds it. After ample swimming in the azure sea the ride back is mountainous and will ensure a good sleep.

Day 6- Dalyan ( B – D )

Relax... Shopping in the cheap local market for local crafts and fruit is followed by a BBQ beach trip to Iztuzu beach where we consume large quantities of finely prepared food by the larger than life Ali. 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 7- Dalyan ( B – L - D)

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