Turkey is not only sun
drenched beaches, spectacular mosques and tasty kebabs! It can also
lay claim to one of the most thrilling whitewater adventures that
you will ever embark on. In the timeless far North the Coruh River
runs it's course, offering not only endless rapids set amongst
breathtaking gorges but also access to scores of villages with some
of the most hospitable people you will ever meet. The guides rave
about this trip not just because of the thrills that the river
offers but also because of the sunny weather, healthy mountain air
and fresh food available along the way. All this adds up to provide
a very enjoyable river trip experience!
is an area mostly unexplored by conventional tourists. At high water
some of the rapids go on for miles! At low water you will actually
have a chance to look around and take in the magnificent
surroundings! The food is fantastic, from fresh olives and
nuts to feta cheese. It is a gourmet feast. You actually float by
ruins of Byzantine castles - history and adventure in one trip! At
the end you will really, really enjoy your Turkish Bath experience.
A great trip to combine with a bit of carpet shopping!
