Boat Trip in Green Canyon: Every now and then Mother Nature appreciates a helping hand and nowhere is this more evident than in the glorious Green Canyon near Antalya. Enjoy a relaxing and scenic cruise along this canyon which came about three years ago after the Managvat River was dammed. And you get to cap the experience off with a refreshing swim in the emerald waters.
Framed by the Taurus Mountains, the Green Canyon is one of the most beautiful retreats in southern Anatolia. For more almost 15km, glide along the placid waters, flanked by rugged slopes covered in lush woodlands. Admire the breathtaking scenery and the panoramas within the two canyons of this picturesque route.
This is the great outdoors at their finest: civilisation has been kept at bay in this part of Turkey. You’ll see other visitors here but the local population is mainly made up of grazing goats. The cruise begins at the Oymapinar Dam and continues for more than two hours until reaching a stunningly situated waterside restaurant, where you will be served a delicious lunch. Then board the boat again and continue your odyssey for a further 90 minutes. All you need to bring along is your swimming gear, towel, sun screen and, of course, your camera!
