Where Adventure Meets History & Culture
Whatever you like to do on holiday, be that walking, biking, touring round, paragliding,
diving, spending a day on a boat or chilling at the beach, Turkey offers outstanding value.
The whole country is littered with history and a number of the sites are world renowned and
UNESCO listed. But there is so much more to Turkey than that. Turkish cuisine is widely
regarded as one of the most varied and wide ranging on the planet. When the owner of your
favourite restaurant has also grown much of the produce in his garden, you are in for a treat,
Local fresh produce helps make the cuisine a highlight of your trip.
Many more of the historical sites are much less well known, but nevertheless they are
stunning and all the better for being largely unvisited. Spend half a day visiting the hidden
gems of Eastern Lycia and you are certain to see more tombs and pillars than you will see
other people. A visit to Sagalassos takes you to a city to rival Ephesus that is rarely visited
and you may even have it to yourselves.
Walking in the hills and you will find yourself following ancient paths, some dating back to
the hellenic period, old Roman roads and walking beside Roman aqueducts. There are
villages and high pastures where subsistance farming and daily life continues, largely
unchanged for centuries. Here you can find some of the most generous people you will ever
meet and experience hospitality that is truly breathtaking.
