This excursion starts with a pickup from your hotel at around 08.30 in the morning where you will be met by a sensible and friendly team member. First of all, you will be taken to see the magnificent Manavgat Waterfall which whilst it is only 2 meters high, it is 40 meters in length and makes for an impressive image. The sound of the water crashing down into the river will give you a real tranquil feeling. There are observation platforms where you can take a good look at the waterfall and also take some really attractive photos. The sound of the crashing water combined with the beautiful scenery and backdrop will fill you with contentment and peace.
From here the driver will take you to Manavgat Town. This town is full to the brim with culture, and you can feel the atmosphere as soon as you step out of the vehicle. The ancient mosque is a must see whilst you are in the area: with its four towering minarets and delicate decorations inside, you are welcome to explore, take photos and simply enjoy soaking up the historical and cultural atmosphere. After you have relished in feelings given off by the mosque, then you can move on to the Grand Bazaar in Manavgat.
This ultimate shopping experience will heighten your senses as you take in the scents and sights. Bright, vividly coloured foods and spices will grab your attention and lure you inside as your mind will crave to see what else there is that this beautiful country has to offer. There are lots of choices for you to choose from, including spices, dried fruits, nuts, fresh fruit and vegetables. Having had your shopping and sightseeing fill, it will be time to hop back on board the boat and start the Manavgat River Cruise!
The river is a lovely shade of blue and it contrasts beautifully against the luxurious green pine forest that lines the river. Admire the sandy beaches that are home to some delightful reed beds. As you make your way down the river, you will see many fishing farms. Locals use these fishing farms mainly to catch trout, but there are also many other species of fish living in this clean river that include: carp, mullet and seabass as well as trout.
Once you make it to the end of the river you will have a chance to swim. Antalya Manavgat River Boat Trip swimming experience is special because it is where the fresh river water meets the salty Mediterranean Sea, so you will be able to swim in both at the same time!! Whilst swimming, the crew back onboard will begin to cook your grilled lunch; freshly prepared and cooked, this nutritious and filling meal will have you feeling content and refueled. After lunch you will make your way back on the boat to where a team member will be waiting, and you will be taken back to your hotel in Antalya where you will arrive at around 17.00 ready to spend the rest of your day/evening as you wish.
