From Alanya: Sapadere Canyon Discovery Tour

1. From Alanya: Sapadere Canyon Discovery Tour

Discover one of the most colorful places in the Alanya region - the magnificent Sapadere Canyon on a full-day tour. Get picked up from your hotel in Alanya at 10 AM, and set off on a 48 km drive to Sapadere. During the journey, admire breathtaking views of the gorge along the route, crossing the Sedre River multiple times on the scenic mountain road. On the way, stop for 15-20 minutes in a nomad tent where you can taste gözleme (Turkish pancake) as a light snack. Then, head over to the Cüceler Cave (the dwarf cave) for the chance to get out and explore. After this, continue on to the village of Sapadere Village for a 45-minute stroll to visit some interesting places. Discover the small village mosque, an old watermill, and a silk weaving workshop. Have the chance to visit a fruit garden where you can pick fresh oranges and taste local exotic fruits. Then, arrive at Sapadere Canyon for the opportunity to discover its hidden waterfalls and swim in crystal clear natural pools. Follow the stairs down to pristine swimming spots, with water flowing all year round. At the end of a 600 m path, find the most impressive waterfall where swimming is also allowed. Take a dip in this spectacular location and refresh yourself from the heat.   Finally, at around 4:30 PM, return to Alanya where you will be dropped off back at your hotel and the tour concludes.

Would highly recomend going on this tour. It was a wonderful day where we got to see a lot of precious places, swim in beautiful lakes and the waterfall in the canyon. In case you also has allergies, the food was free from gluten and lactose (they also had pasta and sauces, but you could choose what you wanted to eat and how much), which was perfect for me. The trip is suitable for both families with children, adults and youth. I really enjoyed the day, but I wish that we could have stayed for a longer time at some of the places and I wish the tour could be a bit longer, but for families with younger children I think its perfect amount of time and it is understandable that its not possible to juse more time there. The trip was totally worth it and it was a lovley day that I would recomend to all of you.

It is a wonderful trip, accessible to all, with extraordinary landscapes, dining in a local location and a visit to the port of Alanya. We were only three adult tourists and a 3-year-old child. The guide is well documented, speaks fluent English and German, stopped at all places for pictures and created a pleasant atmosphere.

We were very lucky to meet the tour guide Faruk for the second time this week. We were a very small group and Faruk took his time. He has a great knowledge about the flora of the country and it is really interesting to do a day tour with him. We liked the destination, the Sapadere Gorge

The gorge was smaller than expected. The stop in Alanya was not planned and also unnecessary

Great trip. Super organized and super executed by the guide
