Turkey: Walking and Cruising the Carian Trail
Join us for a week of walking, cruising and relaxation on our exclusive chartered gulet. Throughout our stay, we have sole use of a traditional Turkish gulet as we cruise along the coast of this most beautiful area. With its numerous unspoilt bays and secluded coves, approaching by boat is by far the easiest and most dramatic way to explore this incredible coastline. The sea is a deep turqouise blue and the walking is on little used paths exploring the lesser known routes of the Reşadiye peninsula. We will discover ancient ruins; traditional villages and the most amazing coastal views.
On board we will be looked after by Anne who will be guiding our walks as well as looking after us on the boat. In charge of the boat will be Captain Adil and his crew including a chef who will prepare the most wonderful Turkish fare for the group.
The itinerary includes walking on 5 days and a rest day when we can explore the port of Marmaris at leisure. On most days, there will be time to swim directly off the boat or from the shore.
