What to expect

Overnight at Puding Hotels, Antalya 


DRIVE to and visit Phaselis. Cable Car to Mt. Tahtali. Optional Hike Ulupinar – Cirali (9km).

After breakfast, you’ll drive to the ruins of Phaselis; the sea here is just as or even more impressive than the ancient ruins themselves, swimming is highly recommended! Then from the coast you’ll head straight up into the mountains, taking a cable car to the top of Mt. Tahtali (Mt. Olympos) which sits at over 2000m. Time permitting, hike from Ulupinar straight to your hotel in Cirali, seeing the legendary fires of Chimera on the way.

Take a morning walk along the beach to visit the coastal ruins of Olimpos. Then head Myra and the Church of St. Nicolas on your way to Hoyran, a small settlement surrounded by ancient rock tombs. Away from the crowds, you’ll feel like the first people to discover these hidden ruins. This is also where you’ll be spending the night tonight.

DRIVE to Kas via Kekova. Kekova Boat Tour.

Your first stop today is Kekova, home to an ancient city that was partially submerged after an earthquake in ancient times. The best way to visit these ruins is by boat, which is why we’ve arranged a boat tour for you today. After the boat trip, you’ll head to Kas, a lively seaside town. Take lots of time to explore the bars, cafes, ruins and shops on the stone-paved backstreets of Kas.

DRIVE to Gombe. WALK Green Lake Loop (6 km). DRIVE to Tlos. (B)

From your hotel in Kas, you’ll head up to Gombe, where traditionally, shepherds living near Kas would bring their flocks in summer.

You’ll then head to Tlos, a lesser explored but amazing ancient city, where you’ll spend the night. 

Overnight stay at Tlos Boutique Hotel.

Driving Distance: 125 km


Explore Tlos. DRIVE to Kayakoy via Pinara.

Here you’ll take a short walk and be served a traditional village lunch. Then drive to Oludeniz where you’ll be staying for the night.
