Meet a driver at your hotel for 8:30am departure, then join a Jeep convoy to Tlos, an ancient Lycian city set high on an arid hilltop. Get panoramic views of the city’s Roman baths and stadium from a scenic overlook in the mountains, and spot the rock cut tombs that have become a symbol of Tlos.
Pause for refreshments at a nearby trout farm before continuing into Salikent National Park, a deep river canyon with soaring rock walls. You can enjoy the view from a café, or roll up your pant legs, ford the river, and follow a narrow trail to the end of the canyon. When it’s time for lunch, enjoy a hearty buffet in a restaurant that’s right by the river.
The next destination is a group of natural mud baths, where you can play in the clay, making body masks and rinsing off the mineral-rich earth. Finally, hit the beach for an afternoon in the sand; watch for sea turtles, swim from the shore, or just soak up the sun before the trip back to the original departure point, where this tour concludes.
