Itinerary

Day 1: Fethiye

Accommodation: Rebin Beach Hotel

Today is arrival day and you are free to arrive at any time and get to know Fethiye. There will be a welcome meeting at 6 pm.

With Lycian rock tombs carved into cliffs, a beautiful coastline and a renowned market, Fethiye is a laidback, friendly town full of wonderful Turkish cuisine and culture.

Day 2: Saklikent Gorge

Meals: Breakfast and Lunch

Accommodation: Rebin Beach Hotel

This morning after breakfast we drive for about half an hour to Saklikent Gorge where we spend the morning. The gorge is a spectacular place and in the summer you can walk in between the steep sculpted walls soaring high above with your feet cooled by the water and the walls shielding you from the sun. There are cafes and restaurants setup on pontoons over the water and it is a lovely place to enjoy. After lunch we head back to Fethiye to explore the town or relax by the pool.

Day 3: Water park

Meals: Breakfast

Accommodation: Rebin Beach Hotel

Today we head to  a nearby water park for a day of family fun and frolics in nearby Oludeniz. It has 9 slides,  a kid's pool, wave pool and the main swimming pool. There are restaurants and cafes with cold drinks, ice-creams as well as Turkish national food ‘gozleme’ and pancakes. There are also lockers and safety deposit boxes. Cash is not used in the water park – you can load your money to your Oludeniz Water World Aquapark card and then you can buy drinks and food via this card. Therefore, you do not have to take money in the pool or slides.

Day 4: Fethiye - Free day

Meals: Breakfast

Accommodation: Rebin Beach Hotel

Enjoy the laidback atmosphere of Fethiye and stroll the impressive harbour filled with traditional gulet, fishing boats and cruise boats that day-trip the pretty harbour islands.

Today we have left free so that you can discover more of this charming town or if you prefer just soak up the sun by the pool. The town has much to offer and the market offers a great distraction for an hour or three.

Day 5: Xanthos, Patara and Letoon

Meals: Breakfast

Accommodation: Rebin Beach Hotel

Today is an exciting and full day. After a hearty breakfast we depart early and drive for just over one hour to the site of the greatest city in Lycian history, Xanthos. The city dates back to 8th century and has a pretty horrible history.  After exploration of the city we head to Patara Beach, rightfully considered one of the most beaches in Turkey. After a swim here and a picnic lunch we will continue on to Letoon, the sacred cult centre of Lycia.

Days 6 - 7: Gulet Cruise

Meals: 2 Breakfasts, 1 Lunch and 2 Dinners

This morning we'll step aboard our gulet, for two days of idyllic relaxation. There’s no firm plan – much depends on the tides and local conditions. Our days are usually spent cruising between the little coves and islands that dot this beautiful part of south-west Turkey. Naturally there are plenty of opportunities to take a dip in the inviting waters of the Aegean. Parents can sit back, relax and watch the world go by while the kids can emulate their favourite sea-faring heroes.

Leaving Fethiye we will first visit Samanlik where the green pine forests come down to meet the blue sea before heading onto Butterfly Valley. It is a hidden gem of Turkeys Turquoise Coast and is accessible only by boat or via the Lycian Way walking trail.The Valley has only been visited in the last twenty or so years before that it was reletively untouched and unknown. Luckily due to the valley being inaccessable it has kept intact and pure.

Day 8: Departure day

Meals: Breakfast

As our cruise comes to an end we eat our final breakfast onboard before disembarking. We head to a local Turkish bath where we can relax and enjoy some traditional treatments and some fun family bonding. Have a scrub, a foam massage , visit the hamam ( Turkish sauna) and enjoy a facial treatment. Our luggage will be stored here and later in the afternoon we will head to the airport for the end of the trip.

My only criticism would be that the itinerary we were given before leaving for Sri Lanka seemed somewhat different from the one our Tour Guide had. Some of the hotels were different, and some of the info about hotels was incorrect, or not up-to-date. Even the info we were given in advance about the tour company in Sri Lanka seemed a bit out of date. This was rather frustrating, and we couldn't understand why this was the case.

Group Size:

Maximum Number of People in Group: 16

Accomodations

Gulet Cabin (2nt), Hotel (5nt)

General Rooming Configurations:

Family of two - All family groupings of two will be put into a twin room.

Family of three - Wherever possible we will put you in a triple room. Please be aware that in some places triple rooms are in short supply. This means that, in practice, a triple room will often simply be a twin room with a mattress on the floor or a further bed squashed in. Where it is impossible to provide a triple room, you will have to decide which of your party takes the single room.

Family of four or more - You will most likely stay in two twin rooms. If and wherever possible we will aim put you in a quadruple room. Whilst we will do our very best to ensure that families are roomed close together (in some cases, we can arrange adjoining rooms), we can’t guarantee this. Most family holidays occur during peak season and we sometimes have little to no control over where you will be put. You need to come prepared for this.

Accommodation is clean and simple. You'll mainly stay in small, locally-run, 2-3 star hotels and guesthouses, which reflect the character of the area,generally these will be a twin room with private facilities. Sometimes you'll stay in larger, more comfortable hotels or occasionally rustic accommodation with basic facilities. We use a variety of accommodation on most trips; chosen for their value for money, location and atmosphere. We also try and incorporate unique accommodation experiences, such as a night with a local tribe, or sleeping under the stars in the desert.

Cancellation Policy:

If you cancel some or all portions of your booking cancellation fees will apply.  A cancellation will only be effective when we receive written confirmation of the cancellation.  If you cancel a trip:

  • 56 days or more prior to departure, we will retain the deposit;

  • 30 days or less prior to departure, we will retain 100% paid by you in connection with the booking.

Note that different cancellation conditions apply to Polar bookings and some styles of trips and additional services. Your booking consultant will advise if differences apply. Please note that for certain travel arrangements the cancellation charge may be higher than those shown. In certain cases a 100% cancellation fee applies as soon as the booking is made and the ticket is issued. You will be advised of different cancellation charges at time of booking. You are strongly advised to take out cancellation insurance at the time of booking which will cover cancellation fees.   If you leave a trip for any reason after it has commenced we are not obliged to make any refunds for unused services.

If you fail to join a tour, join it after departure, or leave it prior to its completion, no refund will be made. The above cancellation fees are in addition to fees which may be levied by accommodation providers, travel agents or third party tour and transport operator fees.

Additional Information:

Fabulous Fethiye

In 1958 an earthquake levelled the seaside city of Fethiye (feh-tee-yeh), sparing only the remains of the ancient city of Telmessos. More than half a century on and it is once again a prosperous hub of the western Mediterranean. Despite its booming growth, Fethiye is incredibly low-key for its size, due mostly to the restrictions on high-rise buildings and the transitory nature of the gület (Turkish yacht) business, which brings travellers flocking here April through to October.Fethiye's natural harbour is perhaps the region's finest, tucked away in the southern reaches of a broad bay scattered with pretty islands, in particular Şövalye Adası, glimpsed briefly in the James Bond film Skyfall.

Gulet Cruise

Included on your family holiday in Turkey is a trip for two nights spent aboard a gulet, a traditional wooden sailing boat, cruising the turquoise coast. This is the perfect way to explore the coast and a real highlight of the trip. There’s plenty of time for swimming in quiet bays along the way and, for those who enjoy snorkelling, the water is clear and warm with fantastic visibility.

Saklikent Gorge

One of the highlights of the region is Saklikent Gorge, one of the deepest canyons in the world. Splash around in the water and scramble over rocks as you explore the area, and then drive back to Fethiye after lunch. In the afternoon, perhaps race each other up the steps up to the ancient Lycian stone temples, each carved directly from the rock.

Xanthos, Patara and Lethoon

Have a hearty breakfast before setting off to visit one of the most spectacular ancient spots in Lycian history: Xanthos. Everyone in the family will enjoy wandering around this ruined city. Cool off with a dip at nearby Patara Beach and have a picnic lunch before heading on to the sixth century BC religious centre of Letoon.

Our Active Turkey trip is just one of our many Europe Family tours.
