Having a mud bath is extraordinary fun and swimming in the thermal pool that includes sulphur-rich minerals water is beneficial for your skin.Our next stop is the Lake of Köyceğiz on which 165 different bird species have been recorded. While we are going through the Dalyan Canal, we are going to see the Rock Tombs dating back to the 4th century B.C.

Dalyan     Dalyan River

Fethiye Market and the Blue Lagoon

Have a good chance for shopping at Fethiye market which is the biggest market in the region. Enjoy making bargains with local people. The splendid rock tombs overlooking Fethiye may catch your eye and give some insight into the eminence and power, not to mention the wealth, of the ancient Lycian people. And time to swim in the turquoise-coloured water of the Blue Lagoon which is used as the symbol of Turkish Tourism by holiday companies worldwide.

Olu Deniz Lagoon 

Tlos Ancient City and Saklikent Gorge

If one day you get tired of the heat of Sarigerme, do something different. Go to a really narrow and high canyon that can not get the sunlight and walk through icecold water. As you watch the picturesque view of the furious and loudly flowing stream, you can enjoy a meal of trout in the restaurant. If you wish to do so you can cross the freezing water to explore the deeper part of the canyon.
The Tlos ancient site is hidden behind an Ottoman castle and the ancient Acropolis on the top of the hill. While climbing up to the castle the Lycian rock tombs will grab your attention. The most impresive is the tomb of Bellerephon, with a fine basrelief of Pegasos the winged horse fighting against the three-headed monster Chimera. Take the chance to see a whole ancient site dating back thousands of years.

 

Traditional Turkish Bath.

One of the truly unmissable experiences of a trip to Turkey is a visit to the hamam (turkish bath). 
      The tradition of the Turkish bath extends far back, to a time before Turks had reached Anatolia. When the Turks arrived in Anatolia, they brought with them one bathing tradition. 
      Experience the true Turkish Delight while in Sarigerme in Traditional style, working your way from warm, to hot, to an enjoyable furnace. Then have a body scrub, to clean your body. It will never be so clean again!!! You can have a shower and stay in the hot room for a short while , awaiting your soap massage which will unlock all the tight muscles in your body and make you fell re-born. 
      Turkish bath is good for: sciatical pains, hypertension, arthritis, rheumatism, stress and fatigue.

Jeep Safari

In this region Taurus mountains, dense pine forests and fertile plains offer amazing opportunities for off road driving.

The safari really goes through an exciting route of winding roads. We drive to top of a mountain called Radar Station which is about 700 m. high to watch splendid Dalyan Delta and Turtle Beach view from summit.The road passes through dense pine forests, the trees soaring up 20 meters. Road hazards include flocks of sheep, goats and many species reptiles(except crocodiles) and traditionally dressed village women. A chance for you to see the unique amber trees whose oil used in medical and cosmetic sector. 
     After the dirty & dusty trail the refreshing dip into YUVARLAK stream passing by our restaurant where we are getting our lunch. This stream is coming from under a mountain, which means the water is really cold. For lunch we have fresh trout that you can choose yours from the pool(or if you prefer chicken in shish or specially baked meatballs.) You can enjoy swimming jumping from a swing which was tied up to the 300 years old oak tree. 
     Furthermore you are going to feel the history by watching the Rock Tombs from 400 B.C. from Lycian time and oppurtunity to see the interior of a mosque which was built as a church in 13th century During greek period. What is most interesting? The architecture is Christian but the community is muslim. 
     To sum up it is an excursion where you can feel Adventure, Nature, History and Entertainment together. If you are looking for something different and learn about the real Turkish life in rural, you shouldn’t miss it.
