TURKEY - LYCIAN COAST MEDITERRANEAN OCEAN

Select your language

8 DAYS / 7 NIGHTS - YOGA, HIKING AND SAILING TRIP IN TURKEY - LYCIAN COAST MEDITERRANEAN OCEAN

On the trails of the ancient Lycians

The Lycian coastline is a dream preserve, one of these rare spots on earth according to many sailing experts.

The steep mountain coast, sometimes reaching up several hundred meters with precipitous rock ledges and wild ravines are unforgettable landscapes. Add to this the Lycian rock cut tombs, the manifold of ancient cities of different civilizations, ranging back way over 3000 years in history.

By the sunken city of Kekova you will be cruising past ruins that disappeared in the sea, to give you glances on flooded remains of ancient housing compounds. Along this stretch of the coast we find idyllic bays within an intricate archipelago, offering numerous anchoring places of stunning beauty.

Dolphins, tunas and turtles enjoy tumbling in these waters as well as we do, so chances are high we get to see them, swimming around us, at day or at night. The beaches are remote and untouched, there are age-old pine forests, olive and citrus fruit plantations, we will moor in small fishing villages and together all these elements contribute to the unspoiled charm of this region.

Experience a holiday combining yoga, relaxation, enjoyments and cultural programs!

Closed groups of 10 people or more can be booked with or without a yoga teacher. If you want to form a group and be among friends. Please contact us for the conditions and prices.
