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 white washed 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, mountain hike, mountain biking, tubing and hiking in Saklikent Gorge. You will be staying in a lovely hotel in centre of this traditional fishing town, within walking distance of everything including Küçük Makil beach.

Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your holiday will help support conservation and local people.

Environment
Our 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.

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.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


So many good bits, but probably tubing and relaxing on platforms over the river afterwards.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


You will be told to tip everyone, whatever the trip dossier says. Bear that in mind when looking at cost.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


It did benefit local people, drivers, guides, restaurateurs, the village we had lunch etc. However there was a lot of coach travel to get to activities.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


It was really good, lots of fun and down time too. Perhaps a bit too fussy and the hosts lacked buzz and warmth.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


Taking part in the activities. The activities were suitable for adults and teenagers, and you had the option to either take them at your own pace or push yourself. Personally I enjoyed the Hiking and Mountain biking days the best.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


Be prepared to join in and enjoy yourself.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?


The activities were all hosted by people living in Turkey, and definitely had a low impact on the environment.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


I would give the holiday 10 out of 10.
