8 Days Loop

Itinerary Breakdown

The journey begins in Antalya, a city with history of almost 2000 years. Today we are going to pick you up from the airport, give you a motorcycle and, if necessary, you can buy riding gear.

In the evening we are going have welcoming dinner where we will all get to know each other.

Today we are passing by Salda Lake, which became famous after NASA exploration expedition, which discovered that the composition of the rocks of its surroundings is very close to the mountains of Mars.

Then we are having lunch and driving to the unique place of Pamukkale – the natural and cultural UNESCO World Heritage Site.
These are thermal springs formed from white travertine, which can seem as snowy slopes from afar. The temperature of springs stars from + 35C. Here we can swim in the pool of Cleopatra herself on the ancient ruins.

Then we are going for a walk through ruins of the ancient city of Hierapolis, where the ancient Roman amphitheater, the central street, and the necropolis are perfectly preserved. Incredible beauty and power of buildings will definitely fascinate you!

In the evening we are checking into a 5 * Spa hotel, on the territory of which there are also pools with water from hot natural springs.

Today we are visiting Ephesus. This ancient city is a combination of culture of ancient Greeks, Romans and Byzantines. Once there was one of the wonders of the world – the Temple of Artemis. However, unfortunately, only ruins and one column have survived. But the library of Celsus is much better preserved, the facade of which will impress you at first sight. And the amphitheater, terraced houses and street will leave you speechless.

We can also visit the House of the Virgin, where, according to the legend, the Virgin Mary lived.

In the evening we are checking into one of the best hotels in Didim on the shore of the Aegean Sea.

Today we will be able to take our time and spend the morning in a beautiful bay of the Aegean Sea. Our 5* hotel is located by the sea and you can swim, sunbathe, go for a massage, SPA.

We are continuing along the breathtaking serpentines of the Aegean coast and stunning secondary roads among olive orchards. Once again, we will have the urge to stop often and take stunning panoramic photos.

And we will spend the evening walking along the Marmaris embankment and visit its legendary fortress….

Today we are starting on the Aegean coast and ending on the Mediterranean coast.

By beautiful roads we are reaching Oludeniz – a place with a picturesque bay and mountains, as if it was ideal for paragliding. You can go down with an instructor for paragliding or spend time on the beach and swim.

Next – Valley of Butterflies, a famous place where azure water and stunning mountains offer a breathtaking view of the sea. And further along the steep serpentine we are climbing (on the bikes)) more than 1000 meters onto the mountains.

Last we ride along the sea to the cozy town of Kash, where we will settle with a stunning sea view

Today we will go to Kekova, where we will take a 1,5-hour boat ride along the legendary sunken city.

And after lunch we are stopping at the Lycian Tombs of Myra – a unique antique necropolis, carved right into the rock.

If desired, we will also visit the Church of St. Nicholas the Saint (Nicholas the Wonderworker) in Demre, which is the patron saint of travelers and gave rise to the character Santa Claus.

Then we are riding to the foot of the Olympos and Chimaera mountains, where we are going to rest in the first-class Kimera Lounge

We will meet the sunrise on the beach and go to Mount Chimaera (Fiery Mountain Yanartash). It is unique in that tongues of flame burst out of the ground at its top.

According to legend, a long time ago, a monster Chimaera lived on the top, which kept all the surrounding villages in fear. The brave young man Bellerophon saved the people. On the winged horse Pegasus, he flew up the mountain, fought with Chimaera and destroyed it. But the defeated monster still spews fire from the depths of underground.
The scientific explanation is simpler – gas accumulates under the surface of the mountain slopes. It seeps out through cracks in the rock and burns.

Next, we again are going to lay out beautiful turns along the Mediterranean coast while riding through magnificent landscapes. We will stop by a beautiful waterfall and return to Antalya, rent out motorcycles and share our impressions of the tour at a farewell dinner.
