On our Turkey family adventure tour, you'll walk, hike and kayak to countless Roman, Greek and Byzantine ruins of western Turkey including the white-washed towns and turquoise waters where the Aegean meets the Mediterranean. Designed especially for active families and friends to travel along the beautiful Mediterranean coast but who don't have a week to charter a gulet, this flexible itinerary includes four days by the sea exploring ancient Lycia concluding in Kas, one of Turkey's most lovely white-washed, bougainvillea-clad towns.
The journey begins in the historic district of Istanbul exploring on foot and riding up the Bosphorus on a local commuter ferry before flying to the Aegean and venturing down the beautiful beaches and pine-covered forests of the Lycian coast including the extraordinary ruins of Ephesus. You experience Turkish hospitality in local villages and many options for easy walks, active hikes, sea kayaking, snorkeling, scuba, hot air ballooning, and cycling with time to relax and to enjoy Turkish cuisine.
