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.
1 - Dalyan
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.
2 Village Tour( B )
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.
3- Koycegiz ( B )
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
skins 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.
4- Marmaris Ekincik - Marmaris( B )
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.
5- Dalyan ( B - D )
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
6- Dalyan ( B D )
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.
7- Dalyan ( B L - D)
we say good-bye and transfer back to the airport.
