Turkey is a trekkers' paradise, with some of the world's finest long-distance footpaths, first and foremost being the Lycian Way. We are in the heart of Lycia and have been trekking here for 20 years, priding ourselves as being the leader in guided group and self-guided individual tours on the Lycian Way. We also run tours on the fantasticSt. Paul Trail.
With its breathtaking scenery, quiet backroads and remarkably cyclist-friendly drivers, Turkey is a great place for cycling. Our senior partner is a still keen, ex-racing cyclist, so our routes are designed from a cyclist's point of view, our bikes are maintained to impeccable standards. We have group road trips on the coast and mountains of Lycia, self-guided tours both on and off-road. We can arrange a tour tailored to your requirements and can also give bike hire and transfers to suit your abilities.
Turkey's trains are as full of contrasts as the rest of the country. From the ultra-modern high-speed trains to the scenic, winding single track of the pre-war Berlin-Baghdad railway! With our expert knowledge of the Turkish Railroad system, we weave the finest of Turkey's cultural sites together using sustainable, comfortable and relaxing trains, frequently using the romantic sleeper trains for memorable overnight journeys. Our flagship train tour connects the Aegean Sea, with its classical ancient cities, through to the heart of Anatolia, connecting the mystic city of Konya, the strange landscapes of Cappadocia then on to the towering mountains of the Armenian border. We then cross into Iran, visiting Isfahan, Tehran, Persepolis and Shiraz. All in 2 weeks, with many nights spent sleeping as the long miles of steppe land gently pass by. A journey of a lifetime!
With over 50 years of Turkish travel experience, there are not many places we have not been to in Turkey! We use this experience to craft a perfect tour for you, after listening to your needs and then making a few quirky suggestions of our own. We will arrange every step of your tour, from the moment of arrival. All hotels, transfers, knowledgeable guides, entrance fees, transport tickets, even restaurant recommendations. We proactively manage and invisibly oversee ever step of your journey across this fascinating land. Though every tour is different we have described our flagship 'Total UNESCO' tour, to give you some ideas.
We have a fleet of Prijon sea kayaks, which we use for our custom tours of the Turquoise coast. Our tours are arranged to suit your needs, and you will be assisted by one of our BCU certified guides. Trekking and Kayaking tours can be combined to see the best of the Lycian coast from both angles.
