Things to do

RAFTING

  • Rafting is an extreme sport that is considered very accessible and safe. It involves traveling down a mountain river on an inflatable raft, overcoming water obstacles and rapids.
  • Even a person with no experience can feel incredible joy, an adrenaline rush, and a sense of self-worth from being able to handle the roaring, fast-flowing mountain river almost independently. All you need for success is to pay close attention to the safety briefing, which the instructor will provide on land, and in the water, you must accurately and flawlessly follow all the commands of your experienced guide.
  • All rafting routes in Turkey have a level 2, sometimes level 3 difficulty, suitable for both beginners and advanced rafters. The pure time spent on the water is approximately 2 hours. Active paddling is always alternated with rest on land.
  • The ideal time for rafting is from June to September because even on the hottest days, the river water temperature will be 10 - 12C.

Tazi Canyon

  • Tazi Canyon is one of the most beautiful places in Turkey. Not many tourists know about it yet. It's a peaceful spot away from city noise, but also fun for those who like exciting things.
  • Local people call it "Valley of Wisdom". Sitting on a big rock there, you see how big the world is and how small we are. This canyon is part of Koprulu National Park. People started visiting it in 2017.
  • From a viewpoint, you see tall rocks (200 to 400 meters high) with green trees. Below, the Koprulu river flows like a snake. The river made this beautiful place over many thousands of years. Now, we call it Tazi Canyon. In the distance, you see a big valley.
  • Tazi Canyon is just a 30-minute drive from Koprulu Canyon. We visit it first. In Turkish, its name means "Canyon with a bridge". There's a famous old bridge here called Oluk Bridge. A long time ago, the army of a leader named Alexander the Great used this bridge.
  • This trip is for tourists from all parts of the Antalya region. You can do it with the rafting activity. If you go, wear comfy clothes and shoes. Bring water and sun protection.
  • 30-40 minutes is enough time to enjoy the beauty of Turkish nature, which is still natural and not changed by humans. You can take great photos. You can also try an old Turkish dish called "gozleme" - it's like a flatbread with different fillings. And you can drink a cup of strong, tasty tea.

KOPRULU CANYON

  • Vacationers in such Turkish resort cities as Antalya, Kemer, Alanya, Belek, and Side often visit the Koprulu Canyon National Park for rafting. This park is near the village of Beskonak in the Manavgat district, which is located about 90 km from the center of Antalya.
  • Koprulu Canyon National Park was founded in 1973 and covers an area of 366,140 hectares. The reserve is named after the canyon formed by the Koprucay River between the villages of Beshkonak and Balashan. In Turkey, the Koprulu Canyon is considered the largest. It is 14 km long and its walls rise up to 100 meters. In some places, the walls of the canyon are almost impossible to climb.
  • The Koprucay River, or Kopru, begins in the Taurus Mountains. Passing through natural canyons and filling up with underground waters from them, it flows into the Mediterranean Sea south of the city of Serik. The river is 183 kilometers long. As it is a full-fledged water source with a strong current both in summer and winter, the Koprucay is ideal for rafting and other water sports.
  • It is worth noting that the Koprulu Canyon National Park is one of the most beautiful natural recreation zones in Turkey. It hosts the largest natural cypress forest in the entire Mediterranean region, covering an area of 400 hectares. Its rich fauna includes 48 rare and endangered species. Of these, 44 are found only here, making them endemic species; 5 species are on the brink of extinction globally; 4 species are nationally endangered; and 39 species are under threat of extinction in Europe.
  • In the reserve, you can observe the mountain goat and the black salamander, and admire how the Anatolian vulture and the white-headed vulture soar in the sky.
  • There are also many historical and archaeological sites in the park, such as castles, aqueducts, roads, and ancient bridges. For instance, the most famous among tourists is the ancient Roman Oluk Bridge, which connects the two parts of the Koprulu Canyon. It can be confidently considered as the iconic entrance and a visiting card of the nature park.
  • To the west of the Koprucay River, in the mountainous region, lie the ruins of the ancient city of Selge, which was founded in the 5th century BC. From the once-magnificent city, not much remains today: an ancient theater, agora, cisterns, aqueducts, and the temples of Zeus and Artemis.
