This Turkey trip is based in the coastal town of Kas, which has developed a reputation as one of Turkey’s best spots for action and adventure. We have arranged a wonderful activity holiday, not inclusive of flights
During your week here on one of the finest Turkey tours, there’s plenty of time to make the most of the many activities available. You can take part in a sea kayaking trip to visit a sunken city and explore inland by mountain bike. Of course, there’s also time to simply relax on one of the fine beaches along the coast.
After a couple of days in Kas you’ll board your gulet, a traditional wooden sailing boat, for two nights cruising on the Aegean Sea. Your meals are cooked for you by the friendly crew and there’s no pressure to do anything other than lay back and relax. However there’s plenty of time for swimming in quiet bays along the way.
Delightfully situated among towering cliffs, the coastal town of Kas has developed a reputation as one of Turkey’s best spots for action and adventure. Once a simple fishing village, Kas preserves its small-town charm with narrow cobbled streets and novel boutique shops. Kas is also a great place to try diving. The crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean coast boast good visibility and a variety of marine life. For a unique experience on our Turkey tours, try night snorkelling – spot the elusive octopus or perhaps a sleeping sea turtle!
Included on your family holiday in Turkey is a trip for two nights spent aboard a gulet, a traditional wooden sailing boat, cruising the turquoise coast. This is the perfect way to explore the coast and a real highlight of the trip. There’s plenty of time for swimming in quiet bays along the way and, for those who enjoy snorkelling, the water is clear and warm with fantastic visibility.
There is plenty of time in the itinerary to do a number of different activities around Kas. A popular choice is launching sea kayaks to discover the sunken ruins of a city which lie submerged in a few feet of turquoise water. Consigned to the sea as the result of an earthquake, the ruined walls and stairs of houses are still clearly visible. You can choose and pay for your activities locally meaning that you only pay for exactly what you want on your family holidays in Turkey.
