Turquoise Coast MTB (Easy)

Turkey’s Mediterranean coast with it’s azure blue waters, sandy beaches and charming coves has long been a tourist attraction but our tour leaves the crowds behind in a search for the perfect single track experience. The mountains inland from the coast that provide adrenalin fuelled excitement but we also have days exploring narrow tracks right on the seaside- of course with plenty of opportunities for swimming and relaxing!

Highlights:

  • Ancient coastal tracks linking clear water bays with perfect swimming opportunities
  • The charming resort of Dalyan with its protected beach, thermal mud baths and freshwater turtles!
  • Dirt road biking in the cool shad of mature pine trees.
  • Relaxing in the cool waters of Saklikent Gorge

Tour Description:

Turkey’s western Mediterranean cost, historically named Lykia and nowadays referred to as the Turquoise Coast, is undeniably special but this trip makes it easy to escape the tourist hoards and get to see the very best of the coast and coastal mountains. Accommodation is superb, and the tour is easily customisable to your requirements- just drop us a line.

About the Area:

Lycia In ancient times was inhabited by a proud and independent race. Their stone graves are perched on headlands or cut into cliffs. Later Roman ruins abound, with harbours, theatres and temples tucked into the scented pine forests that line the coast. The mountains tower up from the coast – the highest peaks top 3000 metres, and Mount Olympos, near Cirali, is at 2,388m.

The main coastal towns are Kemer, Kas and Kalkan, where it’s possible to cruise on a Gulet, or wooden yacht, go diving to the many wrecks beneath the waves, or just enjoy the sun, and sparkling nightlife.
