General Travel Information



Activities to do in Turkey:

Diving: You can explore the depths of the Dardanelles; Visit shipwrecks, frozen for all time. A poignant reminder of the battles of history. Drift in the crystal clear blue waters of the Aegean at Bodrum , or maybe meet with a fish or two in the Mediterranean sea from Marmaris. Kas or Fethiye. In Fethiye we recommend: Dolphin Diving Centre (John & Maria)!

Parasailing : If being hauled along behind a boat is your sort of thing then Oludeniz, Kusadasi, Marmaris, and Fethiye are the places for you.

Trekking : Explore the wildness of Turkey on a variety of walks . Ranging from 1 day to 3 day treks , you can climb the Taurus ranges shrouded in pine forests and bush in Selcuk. What about a gentle stroll up the hills of Oludeniz to see the view that made them want to film the Blue lagoon here. What about a tramp through a national park in Egirdir, or the un-missable valleys of the Cappadocia region.

Tandem Paragliding : Fall from the sky with professional guides at Oludeniz, view the world in a whole new way. There is also a nice site in Kas.

Rafting : Now this is a thrill seeker that everyone can enjoy. With a variety of excursions available from 1 day to a whole week including camping and canoeing , there truly is something for everyone. What a setting, from the grade 4 rivers of Dalaman , to the natural wonder of Saklikent Gorge or the truly awesome Zamanti river outside of Cappadocia. The company that works these rivers are managed by a professional team headed by a Kiwi bloke Jay, so they must be good.

Horse riding : This is a great way to get out and see the real Turkey. Trot along tracks that are inaccessible by bus or car. This easy pass time can be done in a number of the beauty spots of Turkey, Cappadocia (Goreme), Olympos, Kemer, Marmaris, Patara and Kayakoy.

Sailing : With Turkey's coastline encompassing the Mediterranean sea what better place to sail the 'Turquoise coast' than here. Trips can be as little as one day around harbours and islands, to five day excursions with magical stops at seaside ruins and underwater cities. The Turkish style yachts known as Gulets, can comfortably handle groups of 12 to 16 people and supply captain, crew and meals. This relatively inexpensive activity can be enjoyed in a number of resorts but are especially pleasurable when taken from either Marmaris, Kas or Olympos.

Mopeds and Motor Bikes : Get out there and do it for yourself, mopeds optimise the independent travellers sense of fun. Blazing about the streets, hills and countryside of Turkey is a great way to spend the day and can be easily accessed in Goreme, Marmaris, Oludeniz, Fethiye, Kusadasi and Bodrum. (You can also get them in Istanbul, but I've yet to meet someone crazy enough to try.)

Jet Skiing : The motorbike of the water, rev it up and hit the waves in Oludeniz, Sunken City, Kusadasi, Didiya, Bodrum and Marmaris.

Guided Tours : Turkey has been the home of many of the greatest civilisations of the world and with so much history , the only true way to get the full story is with guided tours. Most sites supply guides who are conversant in many languages , that can bring history alive for you in a way that no guide book can compete with. Recommended guided tours are in Istanbul, Gallipoli, Ephesus and Cappadocia and can even secure discounted prices for groups as small as 5.

Ballooning : Fly the sky at dawn and sunset in the basket of a hot air balloon, what could be more special than sailing the skies of Goreme. This magical wonderland unfolds beneath you as you silently float your way over volcanic landscapes and unusual rock structures.

Ferry trips : It's so easy to pop over to Greek islands by ferry, that most people do it as a day trip. Change cultures for a day with departures from Kusadasi to Samos, Bodrum to Kos and Marmaris to Rhodes.
