Embark on Volkan’s personal favorite adventure – the Bonafide Turkey tour for an unforgettable 2024 experience. This classic journey, now transformed into a signature tour, promises an ultimate day filled with fun, stunning nature, and a remarkable a la carte dinner at one of Volkan’s cherished seaside spots.
Originally introduced in 2022, Bonafide Turkey has undergone dramatic improvements based on valuable feedback from our guests. Our mission is to provide an authentic, untouched experience, unveiling secret locations off the typical European tourist route. Prepare to immerse yourself in the relaxed Turkish holiday vibe, making new friends, and possibly picking up a few Turkish ways along the way.
Yesil Vadi (Green Valley): Commencing at 10:00-10:30 am with your accommodation pick-up, the journey kicks off with a scenic drive through local villages and lush forests to Yesil Vadi, also known as Green Valley. After an hour, we arrive at our hidden campsite, a corner of paradise sheltered by trees, providing respite from the midday sun. Here, you can relax on floating kosks above the river, explore wooden bridges, or take a dip in the clear lake fed by a waterfall.
The Valley Walk (Optional): For the more adventurous, an optional walk through the untouched canyon along the river awaits. This hidden gem, untouched by tourism, offers a breathtaking experience. Please wear suitable footwear for the walk, as the natural gorge features rough terrain and slippery surfaces.
Seaside Beach Restaurant and Dinner: Following the valley walk, we’ll head to a stunning seaside beach restaurant. Here, you can indulge in sunbathing and take advantage of changing facilities before enjoying an amazing dinner. Emphasizing the cultural experience, the evening will feature live Turkish traditional music, offering the perfect opportunity to dance and immerse yourself in the local atmosphere.
After capturing wonderful moments and creating lasting memories, we’ll head back to the bus for a 45-minute journey to Dalyan, arriving around 10:00 pm. Whether you choose relaxation or exploration, the day guarantees stunning scenery, local immersion, and warm Turkish hospitality. Bonafide Turkey lives up to its name – a perfect day in authentic Turkish style.
Note: For an optimal experience during the Bonafide Turkey Tour, we recommend wearing good, solid shoes suitable for walking on uneven terrain. Sandals that can go in the water are also a comfortable option for the varied landscapes you’ll encounter on this nature-filled adventure.
Pro Tip: Capture the breathtaking moments of your Green Valley Immersion Tour by bringing a waterproof camera or a waterproof cover for your phone. Don’t miss the chance to snap stunning pictures and videos as you traverse this picturesque landscape and enjoy refreshing water activities along the way!
