Itinerary

Itineraries on some departure dates may differ, please select the itinerary that you wish to explore.

Day 1 - Trip starts in Istanbul

The trip begins at our hotel in Istanbul around one hour from the new airport. All customers arriving at the new Istanbul Airport (IST) airport today, the first day of the trip, will receive a complimentary airport transfer. There are no planned activities for today and you can arrive at any time.

One of the most enigmatic cities in the world, Istanbul's streets are filled to overflowing with markets and palaces, churches and mosques; a chaotic mix of cultures, history and architecture overlooking the waters of the Bosphorous dividing Europe and Asia.

If you're extending your stay by a night then we'd recommend visiting Istanbul's Grand Bazaar. Located within the walls of Istanbul, there are around 60 streets and over 3,000 shops selling everything from jewellery to carpets and textiles and furniture to local arts and crafts. It's one of the oldest and largest covered markets in the world. The labyrinth of streets also house two mosques, two hamams (Turkish baths) and an array of restaurants and cafes, so there is plenty to experience in this historic landmark of Istanbul.

Please note that the included arrival transfer today is from the new Istanbul Airport (IST) to our hotel. If flying into Sabiha Gokcen International Airport (SAW) then an arrival transfer can be arranged on request for an additional charge - please contact us for further details.

Accommodation:

Grade: Comfortable Hotel

Meals Provided: None

Day 2 - Early morning Bosphorus cruise. Walking tour of the Blue Mosque and Topkapi Palace. Fly to Cappadocia mid afternoon.

Rising early, head to the beating heart of Istanbul on a one hour Bosphorous river cruise, an ideal way to take a waterborne view of the city, where the city skyline is presented in all its glory.

Much of the city's main architectural sites lie within the area of Sultanahmet, where we can find the Hippodrome, the old heart of the Byzantine city. Taking in some of the magnificent architectural gems of its Byzantine churches and Ottoman mosques, testaments to the two great empires that once ruled this city, we'll visit the remarkable Blue Mosque and the Topkapi Palace, cultural centres of the Ottoman Empire for centuries.

Heading back to Istanbul airport after lunch, fly to Kayseri and drive a short distance to Goreme, our base for the first few days.

Accommodation:

Grade: Comfortable Hotel

Meals Provided: Breakfast

Day 3 - Head to the remote Ihlara Canyon; walk through 16km of beautiful scenery dotted with ancient rock churches.

A short drive this morning brings us to the beautiful and fertile landscapes of the Ihlara Valley, occupying the basalt plains of Central Anatolia. The narrow and steep-sided canyon is dotted with rock cut churches, once the favourite retreat of Byzantine monks.

Formed by primeval earthquakes, the valley's once rushing river is now just a quiet stream. We take a gentle walk along the winding valley, with its towering cliffs reaching up to 170 m in some places.

The numerous rock-cut churches that pepper the valley are home to some stunningly well preserved frescoes that date from the 9th century. Ihlara's relative isolation from the more popular attractions of Cappadocia makes the valley a delight to explore.

Total walking: approximately 6 km, 2 hours.

Accommodation:

Grade: Comfortable Hotel

Meals Provided: Breakfast & Lunch

Day 4 - Full day in Cappadocia exploring the Pigeon Valley. Pottery making workshop.

This morning we explore the landscapes of the aptly named 'Pigeon Valley', so called because of the numerous 18th century dove cotes, or 'pigeon houses', in the valley walls.

This afternoon visit a pottery foundry to learn about the traditions and techniques of an industry that is renowned throughout this region. Try our hand at producing some pottery before moving on to hike through the dramatic and magical setting of this picturesque valley, back towards Goreme.

Total walking: approximately 7 km, 3 hours.

Accommodation:

Grade: Comfortable Hotel

Meals Provided: Breakfast

Day 5 - Walking in the Pancarlik Valley to view the extraordinary landscapes. Visit Kizilcukur Valley and the Fairy Chimneys.

The little visited Pancarlik Valley lies close to our hotel. Spend this morning walking through it on route to the highlight of the day, the Kizilcukur Valley.

Known as the 'red valley', Kizilcukur hosts an array of fairy chimneys sites. We have ample time to explore the valley and take photos. The Kizilcukur Valley has some of the best locations in Cappadocia to view the sunset.

Total walking: approximately 13 km, 4 to 5 hours.

Accommodation:

Grade: Comfortable Hotel

Meals Provided: Breakfast

Day 6 - Explore the underground city of Kaymakli . Drive to the Taurus Mountains. Afternoon hike in the Sokullupinar valley

Departing Goreme this morning travel through extraordinary landscapes of fairy chimneys that over the years have been carved out by monks as solitary refuges.

After two hours make a stop at the village of Cukurbag to visit the underground city of Kaymakli, just one of a number of underground settlements that have been unearthed that can date their origins between 1900-1200 BC. Believed to have been constructed to protect the population against invading armies, these extensive 'cities' are riddled with caverns and chambers that in some cases could hold thousands of people. Their unique design allowed everyday living to go on beneath ground whilst those above were oblivious to their existence.

After lunch in the nearby village of Demirkazik we begin to hike along the Trans-Taurus Trek, spending the next two hours walking towards our campsite in the Sokullupinar Valley.

Total walking: approximately 3 km, 1.5 hours. Ascent 350 m.

Accommodation:

Grade: Simple Camping

Meals Provided: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Day 7 - Full day in the Taurus Mountains. Explore the Cimbar Canyon with its soaring limestone walls.

After breakfast head off to explore the spectacular scenery along the northern face of Mount Demirkazik, which at 3,756 m is the highest of the towering mountain peaks of the Aladaglar Mountains. We walk above the impressive Cimber Canyon and head down towards the village of Demirkazik.

Break for lunch at a local house, a great opportunity to meet with the locals and gain a little understanding of a lifestyle that remained relatively unchanged for generations. From here we begin the journey back to our camp for our second night amongst the limestone vistas of the central Taurus Mountains.

Total walking: approximately 6 to 7 km, 2.5 hours. Ascent 350 m/descent 350 m.

Accommodation:

Grade: Simple Camping

Meals Provided: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Day 8 - Taurus Mountains. Walking in the Yallak Valley. Drive to Konya.

Breaking camp this morning we walk down to the Yallak Valley, following the sloping path that leads down to the Taurus River and the village of Hanininu (1450 m). After a rest stop in a local tea house drive to Konya. We take a scenic road that leads us through the Pozanti Forest towards the traditional heartland of the mystical Sufi sect and their famous Whirling Dervishes.

Konya is a major place of pilgrimage for the followers of the Sufi religion. Once a medieval Selcuk capital, the city can boast a history that stretches back to the 7th millenium BC, but it is its Sufi connections and the remarkable spinning dances of its adherents that has brought it fame throughout both the Christian and Muslim worlds.

The whirling ceremony is meant to free the soul from its earthly bonds and bring its subject closer to God. We will visit the Museum this afternoon, taking in its turquoise tiled dome and the revered mausoleum of its founder and learning something of the traditions and beliefs of the Sufi teachings amidst its sumptuous 15th century architecture.

Total walking: approximately 4 km, 3 hours. Descent 550 m.

Accommodation:

Grade: Comfortable Hotel

Meals Provided: Breakfast & Lunch

Day 9 - Visit Koprulu National Park; afternoon rafting on the Koprulu River.

Crossing the Taurus ranges and heading southwest towards the Mediterranean coast, our journey takes us into the forested highlands of Koprulu Canyon National Park.

Rich in flora and fauna, this stunning canyon stretches for some 14 km along the Kopru River, centred around two ancient Roman bridges that span a canyon that plunges some 400 m in places.

Staggering feats of ancient engineering, the Oluk Bridge spans the portion of the canyon carved out by the torrents of the Koprulu Cayi, whilst the Bogrum Bridge crosses the Kocadere Stream.

After lunch meet up with our rafting team on a two to three hour adventure along the canyon floor, rafting some 14 km from Beskonak Village to the Oluk Bridge. No previous experience is necessary for the rafting and all instruction and safety equipment will be provided.

Once we have finished rafting head towards the coast driving to the town of Antalya, nestling beneath the peaks of the Beydaglari Mountains, where we will spend the night - a long day but well worth it.

Accommodation:

Grade: Comfortable Hotel

Meals Provided: Breakfast

Day 10 - Drive to Olympus via the Aspendos Roman theatres.

This morning our journey takes us via the magnificent setting of ancient Aspendos, one of the finest and best-preserved Roman theatres. Built into the side of a hill the temple reflects the classic Greek tradition and its entrance opens out onto a horseshoe shaped auditorium capable of holding some 20,000 people. Its colonnaded arcades and richly worked marble pillars retain much of the theatre's original magnificence and its acoustics are such that the theatre still plays host to numerous modern productions and events.

Our overnight destination is Olympus, whose picturesque ruins lie strewn amongst the valley either side of the Goksu River. From the car park we take a short walk towards the natural phenomenon of Chimaera, the Burning Rocks. Once an important centre for the worship of Hephaistos, the god of fire, legend has it that this was also the lair of the fire-breathing Chimaera, the mythical monster killed by Bellerophon, whose only remains are its fiery breathe that continues to belch from the mountain to this day.

Later this afternoon there will be a chance to enjoy some well earned rest and relaxation on the beach.

Accommodation:

Grade: Comfortable Guesthouse

Meals Provided: Breakfast

Day 11 - Travel to Kekova. Boat trip to see the submerged citadel of Simena. Continue to Kas.

Transferring to the traditional fishing village of Kekova this morning we board a boat to explore the calm, protected waters of the bay of Kekova, one of the most scenic areas in Lycia; a set of picturesque islands, bays and small ancient cities. Here we find the so-called 'Sunken City' of Kekova. The results of various earthquakes, the partly submerged streets and buildings are visible in the crystal clear waters, there are even steps leading down into the depths of the bay.

Later we sail to the picturesque whitewashed village of Simena, whose harbour is dotted with ancient sarcophagi (tombs), Roman baths and houses clinging to a hillside beneath a medieval castle. Hiking up to the castle we find within its walls an ancient theatre. Carved out of solid rock it is a wonderful place to sit and soak up the beautiful surroundings and layers of history.

Continue by road to the port of Kas, one of the most beautiful on the Turkish Riviera. Backed by steep cliffs, its a perfect place to end our day as we soak up the atmosphere at one of the many lively cafes near the harbour.

Accommodation:

Grade: Comfortable Hotel

Meals Provided: Breakfast

Day 12 - Free day in Kas on the Mediterranean.

Today is left free for you to do some exploring of your own. For those with a hankering for culture, Kas is built around the remains of a number of ancient sites including; Kas Theatre which was built during the third century BC and is now used for theatrical performances and music concerts, the monumental Lion Tomb and a number of hillside rock tombs.

Alternatively you may like to visit the isolated and ruggedly beautiful Greek island of Meis (optional), to give its Turkish name, Kastellorizo. The island is just one mile from the Turkish coast and yet more than 100km from Rhodes, its nearest Greek neighbour.

Accommodation:

Grade: Comfortable Hotel

Meals Provided: Breakfast

Day 13 - Travel to Fethiye, head to a quiet beach in a lagoon for swimming.

Head up the coast to Fethiye this morning, a journey of a couple of hours. Lying along the glittering waters of Turkey's Turquoise Coast, we make a short detour to Oludeniz where we continue on foot to a beautiful beach and tranquil turquiose lagoon set against the backdrop of wild mountains and dense forest. We have the option to spend the rest of the afternoon here, or to transfer to quieter Gemiler Beach.

Total walking: approximately 4 km, 2 hours.

Accommodation:

Grade: Comfortable Hotel

Meals Provided: Breakfast

Day 14 - Full day boat trip

Today has been set aside to enjoy the azure waters off the coast, spending the day exploring the isolated bays and islands off Fethiye's coastline and sailing amongst some of the best waters in the Mediterranean.

There will be plenty of opportunities for swimming and relaxing and we will take lunch on board the boat, allowing even more time to truly experience this most captivating of settings. We spend our last night in Fethiye.

Accommodation:

Grade: Comfortable Hotel

Meals Provided: Breakfast

Day 15 - Trip ends in Fethiye

The trip ends in Fethiye after breakfast.
