Multi Activity Week
Private Villa Holidays has put together an exciting one week program which takes in the natural beauty of the region as well as ensuring you get the most out of your holiday!
DAY 1: Transfer from Dalaman Airport to your accommodation.
After settling in to your villa, enjoy a welcome tour of the town with your friendly guide to learn about the local history and culture.
DAY 2: Boat Trip
Sail across Lake Koycegiz to ‘Turtle Beach’ on the Mediterranean Sea. On the way bathe in the therapeutic waters of Sultaniye Hot Springs or experience the benefits of the mud bath. Visit the ancient city of Caunos or just stop in front of the Lycian Rock Tombs to take pictures. If you fancy, you can eat freshly caught, barbequed crab at the beach, and if you are lucky catch a glimpse of a loggerhead turtle! If you would like, on the return journey you can visit the Carpet Weavers Association, where local women are trained in this beautiful art, helping to keep this ancient tradition alive.
DAY 3: Trekking
Follow the scenic road around Lake Koycegiz and the mountain to the ancient city of Caunos, stopping off at viewpoints along the way. With your guide, explore and learn about this wonderful site, which includes a magnificent amphitheatre, acropolis and church, as well as the more recently uncovered streets and temples. Then enjoy a trek to the bay of Ekincik through the pine forests which hug the dramatic coast. Arrive in Ekincik for a special picnic lunch followed by a relaxing swim in the warm waters of the Mediterranean.
DAY 4: Scuba Diving
Experience the breathtaking beauty of the underwater world with a day of diving. We take you to beautiful bays where the visibility in the crystal clear waters is amazing. You are accompanied by fully trained divers who will guide you through your first dive or simply stay with you as you make friends with the fish. For those who don’t fancy diving, snorkelling is another option. A superb day of discovery!
DAY 5: White Water Rafting
Akkoprü is the small village from where this exciting day will start. This mountain village is situated on the Dalaman river, the best river for white water rafting in Southern Turkey. The river flows all year round and is at its most challenging in the spring time. You will navigate rapids of grades 3 and 4 with as well as calm pools to relax in and swim. At the end of the day you can watch a film of the day’s excitement while having your lunch.
DAY 6: Jeep Safari
Drive along a scenic road to the mountain village of Agla, 800 metres above sea level. In the hot summer months it is still cool here, so you can enjoy a lovely walk through the village and pine forest, past waterfalls and mountain streams. Sample the delicious local fare for lunch before continuing up the mountain to a plateau, 2000 metres above sea level. Here you can walk among the pine trees and wild flowers around ‘Kartal Golu’ (Eagle lake). This wild and beautiful place is covered in snow for six months of the year, so it is a good place to escape the heat of mid summer!
DAY 7: Waterfall Trek
Drive five minutes from Koycegiz and hike up the mountain, through the pine forest following the course of a rocky stream. Your efforts are rewarded when you reach a picturesque waterfall and shady pool, where you can swim in the refreshingly cool water. On the way back to Koycegiz call in at the Remo Han Horse Farm where you can ride a thoroughbred Arab horse.
DAY 8: Reluctantly, we say good-bye and transfer you back to the airport.
