Walking Coastal Turkey and Gulet Cruise

Based in the beautiful harbour town of Kas we enjoy gentle walks along the Turquoise Coast. We discover ruins of the original settlement of Antiphellos and hike to ancient Phellos. We explore the relics of Patara and look for signs of loggerhead turtles nesting on the golden sandy beach. We also visit the ancient city of Xanthos, trek through the foothills of the Taurus Mountains and climb to the necropolis of Simena for views over Kekova Bay.

In our second week we cruise along the Turquoise Coast in a traditional wooden 'gulet'. Departing from Fethiye harbour we explore small bays and islands, discover ancient relics, and swim and snorkel in the warm clear waters that give the coastline its name. We visit the hillside village of Kalkan and the submerged ancient city of Kekova as well as revisiting Kas. There are also opportunities to sea
kayak, walk Saklikent Gorge and visit historical sites such as Patara (birthplace of Saint Nicholas).
