A vibrant country of both Middle Eastern and European influences, Turkey is quickly becoming one of the world’s most sought-after destinations. This 17-day package is a true opportunity to immerse yourself in the cities and coastlines, learning more about the incredible culture and spirit of the Turkish people each step of the way.
Begin in Istanbul with a tour of the jaw-dropping Blue Mosque, along with Topkapi Palace, the Spice Bazaar and more; then head to Gallipoli for a tour of the battlefields and Anzac Cove. From there, it’s time to experience some remarkably preserved ancient sites in Troy, home of the Trojan Horse, and Ephesus, which holds the Temple of Artemis. Finally, learn how to make fruit wine with expert winemakers in Sirince before embarking on your next adventure, a Turkish Riviera Gulet cruise aboard the deluxe yacht ‘Northwind’.
Set sail in Fethiye, where the Mediterranean meets the Aegean Sea, making for perfectly turquoise waters and stunning coves for swimming and snorkelling. Visit Butterfly Valley, home to 136 different varieties of butterflies; discover Kekova, a sunken city in the ocean; spend time wandering through the tiny streets of beautiful Kas, and the cobbled walkways of Kalkan; visit the traditional fishing village of Simena, accessible only by boat; and enjoy plenty of downtime to relax in the sunshine. Package includes return international flights, one internal flight from Dalaman to Istanbul, seven nights accommodation, a seven night cruise, 38 meals and more.
