Turquoise Coast Adventure Holiday

On this active family holiday to Turkey we uncover the rich history and beautiful landscape of ancient Lycia. We canoe from the ancient city of Xanthos to the beach at Patara, kayak over the sunken ruins of Kekova and explore the foothills of the Taurus Mountains. Based in the beautiful harbour town of Kas for our first week, we spend our evenings exploring the cobbled streets and enjoying local Turkish cuisine. In the second week we sail on a traditional gulet and explore the beautiful shores of the Turquoise Coast. Along the way we snorkel in secluded coves, explore uninhabited islands and relax on the golden sand of Iztuzu beach. We also visit many of the regions’s natural and cultural highlights including a trip to the ancient capital Xanthos and the sunken ruins of Kekova.
