8-day cycling tour (self-guided) in Turkey
Cycling from the cozy harbor town of Fethiye to the river delta near Dalyan
The first 2 days of your cycling holiday you will stay in Fethiye in a small hotel of an hospitable Turkish/Belgian family. Fethiye is situated on 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 trek through a green valley with small-scale agriculture.
The next day you can take a slightly heavier bike ride to Göcek or opt for another scenic tour around Fethiye, with a transfer to Göcek. Göcek is a cosy harbour town with many terraces and eateries.
On the 4th day you can climb the village or use a transfer for the first few kilometers. Then you cycle through a predominantly flat area to the lively 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 the beach.
On the rest day you can take a bike ride through the surroundings, cycle along the many pomegranate plantations, or go on a boat trip with a visit to the Beach of Iztutu, the sea turtles, the authentic City of Kaunos and the beneficial 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 at the lake.
The last cycling day in Turkey goes back along the other side of the lake to Dalyan, where you and your bike are safely brought to the other side.
On Day 8 is the transfer to the airport.
