An excellent fun day out and one of our most popular
trips. Something for everyone ranging from history - Tlos and
Xantos, natural beauty - Saklikent and Patara and an insight
into the real rural Turkey that most folks never see including a
visit to a village mosque. You can drive or be driven.
Travel to the Dalyan Delta where David Bellamy
created a conservation area for Great Turtles. A lovely
relaxing day cruising through the waterways to the beach - have
a mud bath and swim in Koygeyiz lake.
Efes and Pamukkale
Visit Ephesus, one of the largest and complete Roman
Ruins in the world and then the 'cotton castle' mineral deposits
in Pumakkale. Incredible! A 2 day tour staying overnight in a
4 star hotel.
A truck safari to the ancient city of Cadianda and a
visit to the picturesque village of Uzumlu.
From complete beginners to qualified drivers. PADI
and BSAC courses available. You can even have a go in our pool
before deciding whether to go with the European Diving School.
Heading out from Fethiye a lovely day on a sailboat
that is exclusive to Yakamoz Guests - lunch included.
Into the hills above Hisaronu affording fabulous
views over the lagoon at Olu Deniz. Or go to the deserted Greek
Village of Kaya - quite extraordinary! On both trips you can
play 'spot the tortoise' - they are all over the place!
And, if that is not enough - we
have two accessible local beaches - Calis (reached by water
taxi) and Olu Deniz which has a beautiful clean lagoon suitable
for small children to bathe safely.
If it's the high life you want,
you can jump off Babadag and paraglide to the beach or take a
microlight flight over the lagoon and out towards Butterfly
Valley at sunset.
And ladies, the shopping is
great! Leather, Gold and Carpet Shops all offer excellent value
for money and there are local markets most days of the week -
Tuesday in Fethiye is most impressive and authentically local.
To clean up your act and prepare
your skin for those long days sunbathing ahead, The Hammam
(Turkish Bath) in Fethiye is 400 years old and is a must for a
real Turkish experience. For a modest extra charge you can also
have a lovely rose oil massage.
All gents need to visit a Turkish
Barber - to tell you any more will spoil the experience!
And if all this excitement is too
much, do what the Turks do and sit and watch the world go by on
the marina in Fethiye.
As ever, on your behalf we have been seeking out new experiences
for you to try and have come up with a wonderful overland jeep
drive to the Girdev Plateau. This journey take you up through
the local villages stopping at on of the great lakes that nestle
in the mountain tops
This is an organised trip run by Ali Baba throughout the season
and can be booked by reception.
We have also discovered a hidden gem out at Koycegiz - for those
of you who love your gardens the Palmiye Merkezi is a must!
Fancy some stargazing? An evening
boat trip combined with a simple but lovely meal on board,
followed by stargazing on the way back. You may even see
'Yakamoz' on the water....
Not only all that - but the food
is superb as well. There is much, much more to experience on
your Turkish holiday - just how will you fit it all in
