Is this trip right for you?
This trip takes an excursion to Saklikent Gorge on Day 2 – rafting is not included.
Public transport is taken to the water park on Day 3. The visit includes unlimited use of all slides. Food is not included, but there are restaurants at the park at which to purchase food.
Public transport is also used to visit the Fethiye market on Day 4. This is a great place to pick up some bargains for the week.
There are some short, moderate hikes on Day 5 with visits to the ancient cities of Xanthos and Letoon, broken up with some beach time.
This trip includes a 2-night gulet boat trip on Days 6 and 7. The boat has basic facilities and is best thought of as camping at sea. Cabins are twin and triple, with marine toilets and showers. There is no air conditioning – the sea breeze is enough! There is limited snorkelling gear provided on the boat.
Day 8 includes a visit to a Turkish hamam after leaving the boat. It includes a hot steam bath followed by a soap massage – bathing gear allowed of course!
