This breathtaking Akkaya Sunset trip is exclusive to Volkan’s Adventures guests. A must for wildlife lovers keen to see the secrets of nature that only we can reveal. The trip will be filled with scenic walks along the river offering ample opportunities for stunning photographs to be taken, relaxing rest at the camp area, followed by a boat ride to return us to the Birds Nest restaurant, during which the sun will set and the wildlife will appear like you’ve never seen before. Once at the restaurant, relax and enjoy your three course meal in one of Turkey’s most uniquely set restaurants.
We will pick you up from your hotel at 13.00 and take the 45 minutes scenic drive to Akkaya Valley. Our first stop will be the divine Birds Nests Restaurant. We will spend an hour walking through the gardens and having a drink in one of the nests. You will choose your dinner for when we return. The gardens are beautiful and nice and cool in the summer. There are plenty of unusual plants for budding gardeners and occasionally squirrels darting through the trees.
Next, we will hop back on the bus for a 10 minute drive to the historic Indus River. Our boat will take us to the drop off point for our walk. Along the way your guide will give you a history of the river and point out the different birds. A camera is a must as the valley is breath-taking.
We will walk for approximately 90 minutes along the side of the river ensuring several stops along the way to take advantage of the stunning scenery. Walking through the forest is very easy and flat. The path is quite clear but there are some areas that are a little overgrown. Make sure that you have comfortable, sturdy shoes to walk in.
When we reach our destination, we will have an hour and a half to swim and relax before catching the boat back to base.
Birds Nest Restaurant
From here we will drive back to the Birds Nest Restaurant for our dinner at 20.00. There will be a choice of cold and hot mezes, main course and pudding. As you will have already chosen your dinner, the food will be ready and waiting on our return. After enjoying a relaxing dinner we will leave the restaurant at 21.00, returning to Dalyan at 21.30.
Akkaya valley is a private reserve. The owners charge a substantial entrance fee meaning that the area is highly controlled and maintained. This entrance fee means that the valley stays a pristine nature reserve with hundreds of water birds on the river.
