Watching Turtles on our Family Holiday in Turkey

Our family holidays to Turkey are packed full of adventure and experiences. This family joined us on one of our dedicated family holidays to Turkey. Read about their personalexperiences below.

We went to Turkey on our family holiday this year and weren't really sure what to expect. It turned out to be a fantastic time jam packed with activities but enough time to relax and de stress (much needed)!

Our time in Dalyan was a joy and we chose to go on the river cruise which was a full day out and well worth the effort. We went to the river nice and early to get good seats and settled down ready for the journey. The first sight along the way was the Lycian  tombs - a truly spectacular ancient tombs nesstled high up in the mountain cliffs. 

We continued on the boat towards Turtle beach and were on turtle spotting mode, we spotted four and were amazed at seeing this dinosaur like animals in the wild. On Turtle beach itself we had some time to swim and build sand castles and just relax for about an hour before setting off for lunch.

After lunch in a nearby restaurant we carried on the journey and this time to the mud baths.....Something to be tried for sure but not for the faint hearted!

We then carried on down the river to a beautiful lake where we swam and spent some more time relaxing and enjoying the view, at this stage most people were pretty tired so we headed back to Dalyan stopping off along the way to see some fresh water hot springs.

Now for the rest of the holiday!

We have a number of dedicated family holidays to Turkey including Active Turkey, our most popular Turkey Family Holiday designed especially for families with teenagers. Walking the Lycean Way is a dedicated family holiday taking in the beautiful Lycean way, Mt. Olympos and time for swimming and relaxing onthe stunning Turkish coast.

For a more active Turkey holiday, check out Active Cappadocia including the horseback riding, mountain biking and a chance to visit the Derinkuyu Underground City.
