Alanya Green Canyon Tour Days – Times:
Daily – From 08:00 to 17:00
Your tour begins right at the hotel when you are picked up by a comfortable coach at 8:00 AM. The road will take a little over an hour, and along the way the guide will tell you where you went and how the excursion will take place. The road takes you to a valley in the Taurus Mountains. Along the way you will come across fragments of an ancient three-tiered aqueduct once built by the Romans. You will appreciate the grandeur of the structure. At 10:00 AM your motorboat departs from the Green Canyon Pier.
You will take a five-hour walk along the magically beautiful Oymapinar Lake with two half-hour stops for a swim and one for lunch. The outing is measured but eventful. The boat trip ends at approximately 3:30 p.m. And you will return to your hotel.

You will sail on a comfortable modern boat equipped with everything you need. On board there are two decks with convenient seating areas, a bar, changing rooms and showers. The motor ship can accommodate up to 150 tourists, giving you a fun company.
When you find yourself on the shore of a magnificent lake with the color of the water that you have never met before, you will never believe that this is all man’s work. The deep and fast river Manavgat flows through the Turkish territories. The water level is so high that during floods it has repeatedly become a threat to residents of the coastal areas. Therefore, the construction of reservoirs on the river was important and necessary. In the green gorge, where 27 streams are already flowing and natural lakes have formed, it was a logical decision to build a reservoir. People recognized this as early as the days of Roman rule and created a whole water system of water reservoirs, tunnels and aqueducts on the site of today’s reservoir.
At the end of the 20th century, a huge dam, said to be designed by Soviet architects, was built and the canyon was filled with emerald water. Nature was pleased with such changes and before the stone valley was overgrown with magnificent greenery, the water was filled with fish and pretty eagles began to soar in the sky.
Life in this place began to boil, streams tumbled loudly, the air was fresh and clean, and all that was left was to admire this man-made wonder. For this purpose, tourist ships were launched on the lake a few years ago.
The total length of the route is about 100 kilometers, it runs either in a straight line or floats in natural depressions formed by the relief. Every minute of this excursion will give you an indescribable aesthetic pleasure. Schools of nimble fish are found in the transparent thickness of the deep emerald waters, and magnificent eagles soar in the sky hoping to feast on the gaping sea creatures. Clouds hang over the gorge and are high on the rocks that surround this place.
It is interesting that Turks love the Green Canyon and the Manavgat River that fills it, and at every opportunity they go there with their families, enjoy the amazing nature and spend time together.
During the ride, you’ll stop twice to take a dip in the fresh lake water. Swimming in a high-mountain reservoir significantly increases the level of adrenaline in your body, the water in the lake is cold and does not warm up above 12 degrees Celsius even in summer. Not everyone can choose to do this. But after swimming in cold water, you will have more than enough vibrancy.
For those diving in cold water for the first time, it is recommended to use life jackets, which are available in sufficient quantity on the ship. Also, anyone can use them absolutely free. And in order to get dressed quickly and not to get too cold after swimming, there are changing rooms and showers on board.
You’ve probably noticed that the appetite is seriously played on the pond. During the tour you will stop at a very quaint restaurant on the waterfront. A hearty lunch awaits you there: chicken kebab, rice, snacks and salad. In addition, you will have access to various soft drinks (cola, fanta, sprite, water, tea, etc.) throughout the boat trip, absolutely free of charge.
After the excursion you will return to the hotel, this time not only in comfort, but also in friendly company, because during the trip you will certainly make friends with other participants of the trip.
