Family activity holidays in Turkey
Child from £735 - £785
Description of Family activity holidays in Turkey
This family activity holiday in Turkey is a centre-based trip, staying in the ancient waterfront town of Kas, a quiet town with typical whitewashed house and Mediterranean laid back beauty. It has a mountainous backdrop and is located on the iconic Lycian Way. This is a beautiful long-distance walking route, and so there is plenty of scope for inland adventures on this holiday, such as mountain biking and hiking, as well as coastal ones.
On this week-long, small group guided tour you can experience a number of activities. They include a boat trip with snorkelling and swimming, sea kayaking, picnic hike, mountain biking, tubing and walking in Saklikent Gorge. You will be staying in a lovely hotel in the centre of this traditional fishing town, within walking distance of everything including Küçük Makil beach.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?
Kayaking and snorkeling.
2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?
Bring plenty of swimwear and sun cream.
3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?
Clearly many local people and small businesses were involved in our transport and catering etc.
4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?
Very good. The one less successful day was the "mountain biking". The route we used was not what we expected (it was entirely road based, not MTBing), and
the bikes needed a lot more maintenance- I tried 2-3 of the machines and in each case gears needed adjustment and the brakes were almost useless. It didn't
spoil the day, but it could have been a lot better.
Planet and peopleOur family activity holidays in Turkey are based in the Turkish Mediterranean harbour town of Kas. Our contribution to the local community and economy, as well as our efforts to minimise the environmental impact of tourism in Kas and its surrounding area, takes many forms.
We work only with hotels which are either locally owned or employ members of the local community as key members of staff. Picnic supplies are purchased either from local suppliers or direct from local villagers themselves and lunches on activity days are taken at the homes of local villagers when possible who convert their patios into cafes.
When visiting villages we endeavour to arrive by foot and encourage interaction between our groups and the local community to allow each to develop cultural understanding. When motorised transport or transfers are required we use local drivers, often in owner operated vehicles, which brings work to people who may otherwise be under-employed in the community.
For activities motorised transport is kept to a minimum and the activities themselves use equipment which does not impact on the environment e.g. kayaks, rafts and cycles. We actively encourage the purchase of all activity equipment locally where possible provided it complies rigorously with expected standards of quality and safety. Production and disposal of plastic waste is also reduced by dispensing drinking water from re-usable large volume containers.
