Highlights
  • Experience the crossroads of East and West
  • Rides through pine-dappled hills, olive groves, craggy outcrops, sunny beaches and friendly villages
  • The ancient ruins of Knidos and Kaunos
  • Break bread with a Turkish family at their traditional home
  • Sail the Mediterranean in traditional wooden gulets, dropping anchor to swim, snorkel and slumber

We've all said it. "I need a vacation after my vacation." Great getaways do more than just remove you from the day-to-day, they recharge and rejuvenate you. That's our adventure in Turkey. Spend days exploring the warm, friendly Turkish coastline, and split your nights between spectacular hotels, like Mehmet Ali Aga Mansion, and a Turkish gulet,serenely floating on the Mediterranean. Pedal past pine forests and olive groves, then pass evenings stargazing and enjoying small plates of almonds, honey and fresh cheeses. It's a vacation on your vacation.

This was the Canadian Rockies Cycling trip in the year 2000. It was a while ago so i can only remember a few details, but it was a fabulous cycling trip where I not only learned so much more about biking (it was my first ever cycling trip and I just started training for it 2-3 months before), had wonderful and super fun guides, magnificent views, fun places to stay, great food, and I met my husband on that trip! I have a friend who I met on another trip and recommended this one to her. She went on he exact same Backroads trip a few years after us and met HER husband on it! Both of us still married!

Itinerary

Day 1:    Pine-dappled hills, olive and almond groves, lively seaside resorts and friendly villages Greetings of merhaba! (hello!)fill the air as you pedal the countryside outside Bodrum  Splash in the Aegean Sea, then relax over a spread of Turkish specialties.

Days 2-3: The ruins of Knidos, once a jewel of Greek civilization

Ferry across the Aegean to the Datça Peninsula, traced by small coves and bays  Magnificent views of mountain and sea are the background for today's climb  Cool off with a swim in the Mediterranean  We're welcomed like family at a restaurant overlooking the harbor, where fishermen gather to play cards and drink tea.

Day 4: Experience the crossroads of East and West

Ride along inlets marking the shore of the neighboring Bozburun Peninsula. Veer away from the beach to enter a forest cloaking the hilly coastal range In Turgutköy village, learn the intricacies of carpet weaving. Find your sea legs as we cruise to secluded Ekincik Bay for our first evening under the stars.

Days 5-7: Sail the Mediterranean for three days in traditional wooden gulets, dropping anchor to swim, snorkel and slumber

Remote coves provide shelter for water activities, and coastal hills invite exploration on foot and by bike Investigate the well-preserved Roman theater and remains of Lycian and Carian tombs in Kaunos Plunge into stunning Cleopatra's Bay, where partially submerged ruins of an ancient Greek monastery are visible in the crystal-clear water A nomadic family shares an insider's view of life in Turkey's remote high valleys.
