Following the Ancient Carian Paths
Greetings of merhaba! (hello!) fill the air as you walk the countryside outside Bodrum. Splash in the Aegean Sea, then relax over a spread of Turkish specialties. Walk along inlets marking the shore of the neighboring Bodrum Peninsula. Veer away from the beach to enter a forest cloaking the hilly coastal range. Investigate the remains of Carian settlement in Pedasa or Kirel. An easygoing walk past olive groves and vineyards takes you through forested hills down to the Aegean. Dip your toes in the sea or continue on feet, climbing to traditional hamlets. There will be beautiful panoramic views, goat paths, forrests, local life, untouched nature and many more. Our route can vary depending on your requests from 6 to 14 km. with ascending heights of 300 to 600 meters. After the walks there are possibilities of olive oil, wine tasting and watching the ladies weave carpets.
