Rich in history, the Mediterranean coast here provides a beautiful backdrop to this action-packed multi-activity adventure family holiday in Turkey. Flying to Dalaman on the Turkish coast opposite the Greek island of Rhodes we transfer to the small town of Dalyan a short drive away. We begin our family adventure with the ancient site of Kaunos, mud baths and a visit a famous beach for breeding endangered loggerhead turtles. Next, we explore the Saklient Canyon, a huge gorge cut out of the mountains high above Fethiye, before finishing off the day with a visit to the Ancient City of Xanthos and the chance of a swim at the amazing Patara Beach. After transferring to Kas, a former fishing village that still retains its charm, we enjoy some sea kayaking looking out for secret coves where we can stop to swim and have lunch. We then get a bird's eye view of the sea from the high mountain village of Gokceoren, as we spend the day walking from Saribelen to the village of Seyrat. The adventure continues with a day of easy mountain biking on the Kas peninsula - climbs and some big downhills, as we ride a mix of tracks through ancient forest. The grand finale of this exceptional itinerary is a boat trip - from the sea we can fully appreciate the dramatic coastline and reflect on the week's adventures. There'll be the chance to swim and snorkel from the boat and to enjoy a barbecue lunch, before returning to Kas for our farewell dinner in one its laid back restaurants.
