Jeep adventure has become increasingly popular in Fethiye among those joining the excursion. It helps you explore some of the natural beauties and archaeological sites that have not been reached by the mass tourism. It is a must-try for those who prefer to take the road less taken when you go on holiday.
Once you meet your local English speaking guide at Fethiye Harbour, you will be transferred to the jeep meeting point. Then you and your group, along with our professional driver will all board our fully maintained jeep. The adventure starts from the back mountains of Fethiye where the ancient city of Tlos is located. At this point you will drive on the slopes of a steep hill to get to the city. Enjoy the strikingly picturesque ride with your group before arriving one of the most important religious centers in the Lycian regions.
Tlos was one of the most powerful principal cities of Lycia and was once known to be remarkably brilliant and vibrant. The ruins in the city such as castles, Lycian tombs and ancient theaters display how advanced and sophisticated the city used to be under the Roman Empire. Your guide will exxplain to you the history of Tlos and the ruins while your driver will drive you to the top. Take this opportunity to take photos and ask any questions you wish. Once you get to the top you will be able to view another ancient Lycian city of Xanthos and the surrounding. The landscape around that city is so magnificent and you will surely want to know more about its history. Again, do not miss that opportunity now that you have a very knowledgable guide in your jeep!
After the Tlos, you will be driven to Saklikent Gorge, the second longest gorge in Europe. Remember to bring your submersible shoes as we will wade in the icy cold water (it feels so nice in the Summer's heat). What a perfect way to cool off after half a day of riding in the jeep and exploration! Relax while having lunch in a scenic riverside restaurant and sit under the shades while enjoying the view. After the meal we will continue the journey to next stop Patara, another ancient city of Lycia with a longest sandy beach in Turkey. You will have some free time to relax and enjoy swimming there before heading back to Fethiye and our driver and guide will drop you off at your port of call.
