Today is arrival day and you are free to arrive at any time and get to know Fethiye. There will be a welcome meeting in the morning at breakfast of day 2. With Lycian rock tombs carved into cliffs, a beautiful coastline and a renowned market, Fethiye is a laidback, friendly town full of wonderful Turkish cuisine and culture.
Rebin Beach Hotel - Swimming pool
This morning after breakfast we drive for about half an hour to Saklikent Gorge where we spend the morning. The gorge is a spectacular place and in the summer you can walk in between the steep sculpted walls soaring high above with your feet cooled by the water and the walls shielding you from the sun. There are cafes and restaurants setup on pontoons over the water and it is a lovely place to enjoy. After lunch we head back to Fethiye to explore the town or relax by the pool.

Today we head to a nearby water park for a day of family fun and frolics in nearby Oludeniz. It has 9 slides, a kid's pool, wave pool and the main swimming pool. There are restaurants and cafes with cold drinks, ice-creams as well as Turkish national food ‘gozleme’ and pancakes. There are also lockers and safety deposit boxes. Cash is not used in the water park – you can load your money to your Oludeniz Water World Aquapark card and then you can buy drinks and food via this card. Therefore, you do not have to take money in the pool or slides.

Fethiye - Free day
Enjoy the laidback atmosphere of Fethiye and stroll the impressive harbour filled with traditional gulet, fishing boats and cruise boats that day-trip the pretty harbour islands.
Today we have left free so that you can discover more of this charming town or if you prefer just soak up the sun by the pool. The town has much to offer and the market offers a great distraction for an hour or three.

Xanthos, Patara and Letoon
Today is an exciting and full day. After a hearty breakfast we depart early and drive for just over one hour to the site of the greatest city in Lycian history, Xanthos. The city dates back to 8th century and has a pretty horrible history. After exploration of the city we head to Patara Beach, rightfully considered one of the most beaches in Turkey. After a swim here and a picnic lunch we will continue on to Letoon, the sacred cult centre of Lycia.

This morning we'll step aboard our gulet, for two days of idyllic relaxation. There’s no firm plan – much depends on the tides and local conditions. Our days are usually spent cruising between the little coves and islands that dot this beautiful part of south-west Turkey. Naturally there are plenty of opportunities to take a dip in the inviting waters of the Aegean. Parents can sit back, relax and watch the world go by while the kids can emulate their favourite sea-faring heroes.
Leaving Fethiye we will first visit Samanlik where the green pine forests come down to meet the blue sea before heading onto Butterfly Valley. It is a hidden gem of Turkeys Turquoise Coast and is accessible only by boat or via the Lycian Way walking trail.The Valley has only been visited in the last twenty or so years before that it was reletively untouched and unknown. Luckily due to the valley being inaccessable it has kept intact and pure.
Overnight on Gulet - 2 Breakfasts, 1 lunch and 2 dinners included.
As our cruise comes to an end we eat our final breakfast onboard before disembarking. We head to a local Turkish bath where we can relax and enjoy some traditional treatments and some fun family bonding. Have a scrub, a foam massage , visit the hamam ( Turkish sauna) and enjoy a facial treatment. Our luggage will be stored here and later in the afternoon we will head to the airport for the end of the trip.
