What You Can Expect

Adventure in Saklikent Gorge and Ancient City Tlos

Saklikent gorge

Meet a driver at your hotel for 8:30am departure, then travel to the ancient city of Tlos, picturesque Lycian ruins set high on a hilltop that’s 22 miles (36 km.) from Fethiye.

Climb the hill to the acropolis, the highest point in the city, and earn panoramic views of the whole complex, including public baths, a large Roman stadium, and rock cut tombs carved into the mountainside.

Following your time at the Tlos ruins, continue to a nearby trout farm for lunch in a scenic arbor lined with comfortable couches.

After lunch, make the 20-minute trip to Saklikent National Park, entering the Saklikent Canyon on bridges that span the river. Walk between the steep, rock walls of the canyon to the river’s edge, then roll up your pants to walk across the current (if desired, you can remain at a café without crossing the river).

When you reach the opposite bank, continue through the canyon as the route narrows, then loop back to the starting point of the canyon walk. This 9-hour tour concludes with return transfer to your original departure point.

Please Note: This tour does not include entrance fees, which are roughly EUR €4

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2016

Thoroughly enjoyable, our guide Kamil was informative, helpful and jocular, our driver Speedy was safe and smooth given that the mountain roads were quite potholed. There were activity's such as rafting, bungee jumping and zip lining for the more adventurous at the gorge which itself is quite breath-taking. For us the highlight though would have to be the ancient city of Tlos I think. Would recommend it to anyone considering going. Good value I'd say.
