Boat trip to Limanagzi.
In a small bay opposite Kas and only accessible by boat are the three beaches of Limanagzi. There are water activities such as canoes, paddleboats (subject to availibility), diving platforms and a small variety of restaurants serving traditional dishes, such as Menemen (Turkish scrambled eggs), local fish and various Mezes.

Included: services of guide, transport by boat to and from Limanagzi, lunch, use of pedal boats or canoes.
Saklikent Canyon walk and Patara Beach visit.
Saklikent Canyon is one of the most spectacular natural phenomena in the Taurus Mountains. Waterfalls cascade into the rapid flowing and extremely cold Esen River, which over millennia has cut a deep canyon through the ancient rocks. Using a walkway we explore the mouth of the canyon and can progress further in by getting our feet wet! Waterproof sandals may come in handy here, however rubber shoes are also available to hire locally for approx 2TL. Time permitting there is also the opportunity to go tubing after the Canyon Walk (approx 30TL per person, local minimum ages apply however we do not recommend that children under 14 partake in this activity). Tubing is a fun activity in which you sit in a rubber ring with a paddle and head off down river. After lunch we visit Patara Beach in the Patara National Park, often voted as one of the best in the entire Mediterranean (entry to National Park approx 5TL).
Duration: full day.
Minimum Age: 3 years.
Included: services of guide, transport by air-conditioned vehicle, escorted walk into canyon, Saklikent entrance fee, lunch, transport to Patara beach, return transport to Kas.
Diving day (optional) or relax by the pool.
Our boat departs twice a day; at 09.00 and 14.30. Qualified divers can book 1 or 2 guided dives, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. For beginners we recommend the Try Dive course which is a half-day session. The Try Dive programme consists of an introductory video and a one-to-one dive with an instructor, going no deeper than 8 metres below the surface.

Morning visit to the town market before heading into the mountains for a village visit and overnight stay (both optional).
Every Friday morning in Kas a colourful local market takes place with a wonderful variety of fruit and vegetables along with clothes and household goods. Many villagers from the mountains also attend and you will have the option to travel into the area they live in this afternoon. The scenery is dramatic, with extensive pine and cedar forests framing the Ak Dag Mountain range, which are snow-capped until July. The option means you can spend the night in a traditional village house with very basic facilities and communal sleeping rooms - however we can also sleep out under the stars (weather permitting). The warmth of the welcome and the insight into rural Turkish life should make this a lasting memory.
The village stay with services of a guide, transport, dinner and breakfast is an optional activity. A sheet sleeping liner and pillow case are required by all participants and sturdy shoes are recommended.
Minimum Age: 3 years.
Rope park visit; free time.
Today we will take a trip to Kas' new Rope Park. You will have the chance to prove your courage and skill in a forest setting. Flying high above the ground, equipped with climbing ropes, harnesses and helmets you will will get an adrenaline rush on the many challenges! This afternoon you will have time to wind down after the week's activities.

3-4 year-olds can make use of the play area, consisting of four elements and a mini zip wire (to be supervised by an accompanying adult).
Sea kayaking at Kekova.
An introduction to sea kayaking in the calm waters of the bay of Kekova. As well as the joy of paddling over clear blue waters, this is the site of a 2000-year-old sunken city that slipped below the waterline following an earthquake. This is no Atlantis, however the harbour walls and some of the quayside can still be seen below the water. The return journey takes us to the tiny settlement of Simena with its striking hill top fortress (optional entry) and colourful waterside cafes.
Duration: full day
