MORE ABOUT THE TOUR

  • Rafting and buggy safari is a fun and active excursion, which is designed for the whole day. This tour will be a real find for bored tourists and will give a lot of positive emotions and impressions.
What is Rafting?
  • Rafting is rafting on a mountain river on inflatable rafts or kayaks, during which the team will have to overcome all sorts of obstacles and obstacles encountered on their way.
  • There is a version about how rafting originated. It was during the Vietnam War, when soldiers transported cargo along the rivers using rafts. One day, the detached raft was carried away by a turbulent current. The soldier, who was on the raft, not only survived, but was also able to bypass the rapids and other obstacles encountered on his way. After this incident, rafting on the river became a kind of entertainment for the soldiers.
  • Now rafting is a popular extreme water sport all over the world, in which competitions and championships are held.
  • Conventionally, rafting is divided into categories: sports, tourism and hiking.
  • We, tourists looking for how to have fun, interesting and varied time on vacation, are interested in tourist rafting.
  • All rafting routes in Turkey have a 2nd, sometimes 3rd level of difficulty, suitable for both beginners and advanced rafters. The net time spent on the water is approximately 2 hours. Active rowing certainly alternates with rest on land.
  • The ideal time for river rafting is from June to September, because even on the hottest days, the water temperature in the river will be 10 - 12C.
  • Vacationers in Turkish resort cities such as Antalya, Kemer, Alanya, Belek and Side go to the Koprulu Canyon National Park, which is located near the village of Beshkonak in Manavgat, which is located 90 km from the center of Antalya, to participate in rafting.
Koprulu Canyon National Park
  • Koprulu Canyon National Park was established in 1973 and covers an area of 366,140 hectares. The name of the reserve was due to the canyon of the same name, formed by the Kepruchay River between the villages of Beshkonak and Balasan. In the Republic of Turkey, the Köprülü canyon is considered the largest. Its length is 14 km, and the height reaches 100 meters. In places, the walls of the gorge are almost impossible to climb.
  • The Kepruchay, or Kepryu River, originates in the Taurus Mountains and, passing through natural canyons, filling them with groundwater, flows into the Mediterranean Sea south of the city of Serik. Its length is 183 kilometers. Being a full-flowing source, with a fairly strong current, both in summer and in winter, Köprüçay is ideal for rafting and other water sports.
  • It is worth noting that the Köprülü Canyon National Park is one of the most beautiful natural recreation areas in Turkey. On its territory there is the largest natural cypress forest in the entire Mediterranean region, with an area of 400 hectares. Its rich fauna includes 48 rare and endangered species. Of these, 44 species are found only here, i.e. are endemic species; 5 species are on the verge of extinction on a global scale; 4 species nationally; 39 species are endangered in Europe.
  • In the reserve, you can watch the mountain goat and the black salamander, admire how the Anatolian scavenger and griffon vulture soar in the sky.
  • Many historical and archaeological monuments, such as castles, aqueducts, roads and ancient bridges, have also been preserved here. For example, the most famous among tourists is the ancient Roman bridge Oluk, which connects the two parts of the Köprülü canyon. It can be safely called a kind of entrance and visiting card of the natural park.
  • To the west of the Kopruchay River, in a mountainous area, are the ruins of the ancient city of Selge, which was founded in the 5th century BC. Not much remains of the once majestic city: an ancient theater, agora, cisterns, aqueducts, temples Zeus and Artemis.
  • To the east of the ancient Selge there is another attraction of the reserve - Adam Kayalar, or Rock People. These are rocks with interesting geomorphological features, from 10 to 70 meters high and over 65 million years old. From a distance, they really resemble people or warriors who are on the defensive, perhaps Selga.
What is Buggy?
  • The buggy is a small, light vehicle with increased cross-country ability and stability. These little machines italy for two people - driver and passenger.
  • In the field of tourism, they have gained particular popularity not only due to the fact that they will pass to the most inaccessible places, because they do not care about sand, dirt, or water obstacles encountered on their way, they are also safe and easy to manage. Absolutely anyone can drive a buggy, even one who has never driven a car. You don't need a driver's license to drive a buggy.
  • An interesting fact! Buggy translates as "bug". The first buggies were invented in the 50s from old, and sometimes recyclable, Volkswagen Beetles.
How the Rafting and Buggy Safari goes
  • Please note that the text below is for guidance only. The sequence of the program may change at the discretion of the guide, depending on the weather conditions or the workload of the locations. For example, riding a buggy can be both at the beginning of the tour, and at the end or in the middle of the tour.
  • First part of the tour - buggy ride
  • After picking up the guests from the hotels, the bus will head to the buggy parking area.
  • Upon arrival at the parking lot, the instructor will give you a safety briefing and give you protective equipment - a helmet.
  • Before setting off on the main route, you will have a test drive, and for guests who do not have any driving experience, an express training will be held.
  • The buggies are designed for two people, so if someone is not confident in their abilities or does not want to drive, it does not matter, the passenger seat is just for you!
  • The buggy ride through the picturesque forest and mountainous area will take approximately 40 minutes, after which you will return to the parking lot.
  • The second part of the tour is rafting.
  • In the rafting center you can change into a change of clothes or swimwear.
  • You will be given all the necessary protective equipment (helmet, life jacket) and given an introductory safety briefing.
  • The starting point is located 10 km from the rafting center, where you will go on vehicles. After the arrival of tourists, they are divided into teams of 6-8 people, depending on which inflatable raft your team got. Each team is led by an experienced instructor who will explain how to sit in the boat correctly, how to row, how to overcome certain obstacles, how to behave in case of a fall into the water and how to wait for help in the water.
  • After all preparations and training are completed, the river rafting begins.
  • Rafting in Turkey in the Köprülü canyon has a 2nd, sometimes 3rd level of difficulty. The route is suitable for both beginners and advanced rafters. The net time spent on the water is approximately 2 hours. You have to overcome a segment of 14 kilometers. However, it will be divided into two parts - 7.5 kilometers each with rest breaks - 15 minutes and 30 minutes.
  • After arriving at the finish line, our tourists will have a delicious and hearty lunch, consisting of dishes of national cuisine, rest and swimming in the backwaters of the river.
  • Upon returning to the raft center, you can view videos and photographs taken by the photographer and purchase them if you wish.
How to prepare?
  • When going on such an active excursion, you should first of all pay attention to comfortable clothes and shoes that fit well on the leg.
  • You can also take a change of clothes with you, because riding a buggy is likely to get dirty and a bandage on your face to protect against dust.
  • Don't forget to bring swimwear and sun protection.
  • During rafting, if you wish, you can rent a wetsuit and special slippers for rafting.
