Canoeing on the Xanthos River

Spend a day canoeing down the Xanthos River, through Patara National Park, an area of outstanding natural beauty. The river flows from the mountain springs that emerge from the Saklikent Gorge and ends at Patara. Experienced river guides take you on a journey across ancient Lycian lands of tranquil, lush nature. The ride is downstream, so it isn't hard going! The journey ends at Patara Beach, with a swim. A fun day with a BBQ picnic lunch along the way, as well as a very enjoyable mud bath!

You can book this activity through most tour companies in Kalkan. With all of the surrounding natural beauty, it is little wonder that visitors return to holiday villas in Kalkan, Turkey time after time.
