Full description
Your adventure begins with pickup from your hotel in Side and heads to the coastal city of Alanya. The first stop of the day is the Sapadere Canyon, a stunning natural site formed by years of wind, water, and ice erosion. Follow your guide on an exciting hike through the canyon and watch out for the array of wildlife that lives, especially colorful birds and butterflies. Once you’ve worked up an appetite from your hike, enjoy a relaxing stopover at a local restaurant and dine on a delicious lunch. Once you’re feeling suitably re-energized, continue your hike through the canyon. As you walk, soak up incredible views of the numerous waterfalls and stop to take photos as a selection of view points. You can also opt to visit Goblin’s Cave for an additional fee, or swim in the mineral waters that trickle down from the Taurus Mountains. Before leaving the canyon stop by Seyir Terrace, which boasts incredible views of Alanya and the surrounding landscapes. Finally, enjoy 2-hours of free time in the city to explore at your own pace and see the sights that interest you most. There’s plenty to discover in Alanya, including Cleopatra Beach, the Red Tower, and the Teleferik. At the end of an unforgettable day, sit back and relax on the return journey to Side.

All in all a great trip, the guide was great, I got a lot of information and nice conversations that gave you an insight into the country and the way of life. the time in the gorge was unfortunately very short at one hour and we were so looking forward to it. Lunch was good. Alanya with an hour actually not necessary, would have preferred more time in the gorge.

A nice trip with a great tour guide. However, you have to be aware that you also sit in the bus for several hours to get from one station to another. This is not a problem in itself, but reading the description of the excursion, one could quickly think that one is more hiking/running. But overall a nice day. The canyon is very beautiful, you can go swimming in (cold) clear water. Alanya is a beautiful city and the lunch restaurant is very nicely located and offers delicious food.

Perfect trip! We saw a lot in and around Alanya and had enough time at each station to discover something for ourselves. The bus driver and tour guide were incredibly nice and answered every question. German was difficult, but with English and Russian you could communicate perfectly and without any problems. Highly recommended!
