Full description

Discover one of the most colorful places in the Alanya region - the magnificent Sapadere Canyon on a full-day tour. Get picked up from your hotel in Alanya at 10 AM, and set off on a 48 km drive to Sapadere. During the journey, admire breathtaking views of the gorge along the route, crossing the Sedre River multiple times on the scenic mountain road. On the way, stop for 15-20 minutes in a nomad tent where you can taste gözleme (Turkish pancake) as a light snack. Then, head over to the Cüceler Cave (the dwarf cave) for the chance to get out and explore. After this, continue on to the village of Sapadere Village for a 45-minute stroll to visit some interesting places. Discover the small village mosque, an old watermill, and a silk weaving workshop. Have the chance to visit a fruit garden where you can pick fresh oranges and taste local exotic fruits. Then, arrive at Sapadere Canyon for the opportunity to discover its hidden waterfalls and swim in crystal clear natural pools. Follow the stairs down to pristine swimming spots, with water flowing all year round. At the end of a 600 m path, find the most impressive waterfall where swimming is also allowed. Take a dip in this spectacular location and refresh yourself from the heat.   Finally, at around 4:30 PM, return to Alanya where you will be dropped off back at your hotel and the tour concludes.

Great tour, highly recommend. Unfortunately stay at the waterfall only one hour. Going into the water and then up the many stairs to the vantage point is almost impossible. But still impressive, also the stops at viewpoints and at the dwarf cave. During the lunch break, the idyllic location is more important than the food. Perfect: the tour guide RAMBO

A wonderful experience. We traveled with a family of five including a 6 years old. My son loved the trip and wanted to go there the next day. Our driver- Rambo-, picked us up from the hotel in the safari jeep. He provided an amazing and jun trip. The host was also bringing the positive vibe. The actual trip was great. Beautiful cave and walk along the tree tops on the wooden bridge. And the canyon was just beautiful. Make sure that you bring your swimwear and dive into ice cold water by the waterfall. Unforgettable. In the end a lunch by the water was delicious and filling.

Tour was great. Our driver Aladdin (Rambo), an elderly gentleman, was just great. Super friendly, accommodating and made the ride fun. The tour was a lot of fun. The canyon was beautiful, but unfortunately there was so much going on in the bathing area that you didn't have the opportunity to swim. But all in all very recommendable.
