About us

Our company was opened by two trekking guides and their favourite bar owner! We started in 1994 and have become Turkey’s largest adventure specialist. We knew that the Lycian Coast was not only a great walking destination but had the potential for a whole range of adventure and activities and was our idea to start sea-kayaking and canyoning. We also opened one of the first diving schools. Now we also offer paragliding and mountain biking. We run two hotels ourselves and offer transfers and tailor-made itineraries for the whole of Turkey.

We have been practicing sustainable tourism for longer than the term has existed because it’s the only thing we know! “Our activities are all low impact, we don’t have quad-bikes, jet skis or 4wd jeeps- instead you get a paddle, a rope, a sail, a wet suit, a pair of boots or a wing…”

By attracting clients to this type of activity we are cutting down on the pollution that traditional tourism brings. We also buy local produce and employ local people. We’re looking forward to getting our varied and specialised activities out to a bigger audience without having to go through a wholesaler who couldn’t understand the specifics of our sector.

We are also active in our community. Our most recent commendation was from local government for pioneering the “Friendship Race” between the Greek Island of Kastellorizo (or Meis) and Kaş on the Turkish Mainland.

Don’t think twice about asking us for any insider tips or recommendations as you are planning your travels.
