Tour description

A bridge between continents and cultures, Turkey has always been a meeting place for travellers eager to exchange just about everything. That trend continues with this activity-heavy romp through southern Turkey. Swap your trusty walking stick for a bike and a kayak as you hike, pedal, paddle, and ride your way through the steep canyons of the Lycian Way, past ancient ruins, around peaceful olive groves, and into small villages untouched by time in the valleys of Cappadocia. Exercise should always be this inspiring.
