Kaş – pronounced “Cash” – on the Teke Peninsulais a small town with a chilled atmosphere. It’s perfectly positioned for those wishing to explore the glittering coastline, canyons and rivers of this part of southern Turkey, and welcomes both adventure seekers and those seeking a more relaxed time, alike. Here you can explore on foot, by bike or even kayak; scuba dive or snorkle; and visit the impressive Saklikent Gorge and Patara National Park, with its Roman ruins and glorious beach. The mountains behind Kaş are riddled with deep canyons offering some of the most impressive natural phenomena in the Taurus Mountains, with spectacular gorges where springs and waterfalls cascade into the rapidly flowing cold river.

I have recently gotten back from a 15 day tour of Turkey. It was an amazing trip but was busy to include everything on the itinerary. I’m glad it included as much as it did which is why I booked with exodus but it would have been good for the trip to be longer so that could see what was on the itinerary in more of a leisurely pace and other attractions Turkey has to offer.
This trip is pretty full on, with long days on the road and often crowded visitor sites. (Ephesus and cruise ships = M1 only a holiday weekend) If the options are taken there is very little down time. Leisurely/moderate does not really describe it. Hotels used range from excellent to a compromise too far. On many occasions we arrived at the destination too late in the day to get local bearings, but in most cases it was worth it given what had been seen along the routes. Food was acceptable at all times although some breakfasts left something to be desired, such as drinkable coffee. Most hotels had water and kettles in the rooms, but water enroute did not follow the normal Exodus expectations. Turkey has an inflation problem, many of the costs noted in the trip notes were somewhat out of date, it also has a penchant fore closing roads at short notice forcing route changes. Overall this trip gives a very good overview of what Turkey has to offer away from the ‘sun and sand/all inclusive’ packages, be aware that there is very limited time in Istanbul. It is worth planning a few extra days.
We had a great week away on an active, adventure holiday in a beautiful area of Turkey. Lovely group of people, lots to do & see, a really great way to explore, discover and enjoy as much as possible in a week. Kas is a lovely little harbourside town with a maze of streets, cafes and gift shops to meander through, there was a perfect timetable of more strenuous activity interspersed with gentler days, beaches and free time to sit by the pool or explore some more.
