Begin your excursion with a picturesque one-hour bus ride to Dalyan. The charming village rose to fame after a controversial development plan was implemented to build a luxury hotel on the nearby Iztuzu Beach, further endangering the dying loggerhead turtle species. Development ultimately ceased, and the area is now a protected natural environment. Nature lovers will adore Dalyan's convenient location smack-dab in the middle of a popular wetland area.
Board a river boat and drift down beautiful winding canals, passing through mazes of reeds on your way to Caunos, a popular archaeological site. As you travel down the river, you'll see the famous temple-tombs of ancient kings carved into the rocky cliffs. Once in Caunos, check out the Roman Theater, Roman Bath, and the historic streets dating back to the 5th century B.C. You can climb the cliffside to enjoy a panoramic view of the entire region. A delicious local specialty lunch is yours to enjoy at a restaurant in Caunos.
After Caunos, travel further downriver to the warm and sandy Iztuzu Beach, famous as the loggerhead turtle breeding ground, before concluding your tour and returning to port.
