About Us

Having traveled extensively ourselves, our goal is to provide others with trips suited just to them; be it hiking, biking, kayaking or cultural explorations. We want to give you the chance to freely explore all the regions of turkey, including lesser-known places away from the typical tourist track. Knowing from experience that everyone travels and explores at their own pace and in their own way, we offer only self-guided tours for the most enjoyable experience possible.
     Combining our travel experiences around Turkey with our enthusiasm for nature, we have prepared some sample programs for independent travelers.

Specializing in the Carian Trail & the Lycian Way, our tours were created by Altay Özcan. As part of responsible tourism, 10% of income from our tours is put towards the way marking and maintenance of the Carian Trail.
