DAY 2

HIKE Cumhuriyet – Bozburun 12 km

This is an easy day with a half day hike. The day starts directly from the hotel. The coastal path passes by small coves and villages before reaching Bozburun’s nearby shipyard. Bozburun is world-famous for its traditional type of boat, called ‘gulets’. You can see how they make or maintain the boats here. The route then continues on another path with nice views of Bozburun and nearby islets before reaching the small coastal town of Bozburun.

HIKE Bozburun – Selimiye 10 km

The hike starts directly from the pension and heads towards a small cove called Germe. The path goes through a small hamlet and starts ascending to a saddle with nice views of Bozburun and the mountains. Reaching the saddle, the route continues on a dirt road and descends down to Selimiye with views of the lake-like bay and the mountains surrounding it. Selimiye is a small town on the coast and the perfect place to spend an afternoon.

DAY 4

HIKE Bayır – Şelale – Turgut 12 km

A 20 minute transfer takes you to Bayır. The route follows a stream-side dirt road before ascending on a combination of paths and forest roads.

The hike first follows the forest road and then a minor asphalt road to the village of Turgut. Following a path up the hill, the route ascends to the ancient settlement of Hydas for some sweeping views. You finish the day by walking back to Turgut on a forest road.
