Description of Turkey kayaking holiday
Check dates, prices & availability
We can cater for vegetarian and vegan diets.
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
We seek to provide people with slow adventure travel itineraries consisting of walking, kayaking, hiking, biking, wildlife viewing, and more. We have structured this tour to include kayaking as our made form of transportation. There are a couple instances that we used vehicles, although we all carpool into one or two cars to reduce our carbon emissions. We have set the itinerary this way to have paddling being our main mode of transport as it is human powered and kind on the environment we are visiting.
We have vegetarian and vegan options available for travelers with a variety of dietary needs. From the minute you inquire about one of our tours we discuss what your dietary needs are and do our absolute best to ensure you are well fed, energized, and satiated throughout your adventure travels with us. Dietary restrictions are always communicated from our office staff to our guides on the ground to ensure our guests are well taken care of.
ENVIRONMENT AND WILDLIFE
Additionally, in an effort to reduce our impacts on the natural environment, in our packing list, we suggest that our guests bring a water filter to filter tap water. Otherwise we ask that guests bring a wide-mouth water bottle so we can dispense from larger water bottles and reduce use of single use plastic.
The tour we have all guests stay at the first night in Istanbul has a full sustainability report that they run annually as they are committed to sustainable tourism. They have a purchasing policy that requires their purchases to be on eco friendly cleaners and products. This hotel requires all staff to take training on energy saving in the hospitality industry. The staff is well educated on sustainable measures as such and makes sure to be saving energy throughout the hotel whenever possible. This hotel also has their own waste sorting facility to ensure all garbage and recycling are being thrown away properly.
On this tour we stay at Melek Hotels Selimiye. This is a family run boutique hotel that offers locally grown produce and foods to their guests. We help support the local economy by staying at locally owned and operated hotels.
Additionally, we almost exclusively eat at one off restaurants throughout this tour to ensure we are putting money back into the locals pockets who enjoy sharing their cuisine. This also helps our guests get the most out of their time in Turkey as they get the truest experience possible trying to local cuisine.
EMPLOYMENT, INCLUSIVITY AND DIVERSITY
Every accommodation on this tour includes stays at boutique hotels that employ locals.
We are able to accommodate people with physical limitations, disabilities and medical conditions; please speak with our team ahead of time if you think you will require any additional assistance while on the trip.
All of our group tours in Turkey are LGBTQ+ friendly. Everyone is welcome on our tours regardless of identity.
All of our operating staff and guides get paid at least minimum wage.
