Intro

The first 2 days of your cycling holiday you will stay in Fethiye in a small hotel runned by a Turkish/Belgian family. Fethiye is situated near a beautiful bay and enclosed by the foothills of the Taurus Mountains. It has an authentic centre, called Paspatur, where you will find a variety of shops and a real fish market. The original Amphitheatre is restored and on the outskirts of the town you will find rock-carved Lycian tombs. You can take a short bike ride on the peninsula and/or a longer ride through a green valley with small-scale agriculture.

The next day, after a short ride through the valley of Fethiye, we will transfer to the harbor town of Göcek. Göcek is a cozy harbour town with many terraces and nice restaurants.

On the 4th day you cycle through a predominantly flat area to the village of Dalyan, located on a river delta near the lake of Köycegiz. Here you will stay 2 nights in a beautifully located guesthouse by the river, overlooking the Carian rock tombs. The river delta near Dalyan is a protected natural area known for the Caretta Caretta turtles, which come to lay their eggs on Iztuzzu beach.

On the rest day you can take a bike ride through the area, cycling along the many pomegranate orchards, or go on a boat trip with a visit to the Beach of Iztuzu, the sea turtles hospital, the authentic City of Kaunos and the artificial mud and sulphur baths on the shores of Lake Köycegiz.

On day 6 you will cycle to Köcyegiz on the other side of the lake. You will stay in a hotel located straight near the lake.

The last cycling day in Turkey goes back along the other side of the lake to Dalyan, where you wil take the small ferry to the other side of the river.

On day 8 you can continue your holiday in Turkey or take a transfer to the airport of Dalaman.
