Full-Day Saklıkent Canyon/Tlos Antique City/Yakapark Tour (L)
After the archaeological expedition, a short drive higher up will take us to YAKA Village. The soothing sound of everflowing ice-cold waters gushing out of every rock bottom and tree root, and the cool atmosphere will releive you from modern day’s cares and worries. We will be having lunch at a trout-farm restaurant in Yaka Village.
Then a drive downhill towards the Mediterranean, we get to the SAKLIKENT Canyon. Words fail to fully comprehend this natural fenomenon which surprise the visitors even on their repeated visits. Melting snow and heavy rainfall from the peaks of Akdağ dug their way in the heart of the limestone rock table for thousands of years in this relatively young geological formation. And this 13 km=8 ml long Saklıkent Canyon came into being. You can walk in the canyon as far as your courage permits, or sit back on the riverside decks and enjoy the calm and quiet over the stream, or do an optional float-ring rafting in the icy waters of BLACKRIVER originating from the canyon. Proper trekking and water shoes recommended.
In Good Old LYCIA, the most gifted south-western part of Turkey, which is full of history, archaeology and natural sources at every step you find something extraordinary. Along the southern skirts of Mt. Akdağ (ancient Masisitus) one of the best preserved antique settlements is TLOS. So affectionately embraced by mother nature the remains of Tlos among the foliage are beyond description with words. On the castle-hill (ACROPOLIS) you’ll hear the clash of PEGASUS and CHIMAERA, in the Roman baths-hospital you’ll find out how our Roman ancestors healed, purified and enjoyed themselves. In the stadium you’ll feel the atmosphere of Olimpic games and gladiators’ bravado, in the theatre the Greek dramatic arts will reveal their secrets for you, and in the middle of the many different types of tombs in the ancient graveyard (NECROPOLIS) you’ll grasp the idea behind man’s urge to attain eternity. So much to see and learn about Greco-Roman history and mythology within a 45 minutes drive from your resort. We advise to do some reading beforehand.
