Day 05 - Wednesday
Bike ° 653km ° b
Our longest riding day! But we have good roads with beautiful views, so it will not be any problem! And our destination today is not more or less than the world-famous Pamukkale with its white pools! In Pamukkale city center, there are several small local restaurants facing Pamukkale pools... and Pamukkale looks very nice with the colourfull evening lights! A great and inexpensive option for dinner!
Day 07 - Friday
Kusadasi - Kas
Bike ° 400km ° b,d
After Cappadocia and Pamukkale we have one more big highlight of Turkey! And that is today after breakfast, the ancient, 8000 years old Ephesos. One of Turkey's main cultural attractions! Ephesos we visit with a local guide... it's a must!
Around noon we will hit the road again for Kas. Lunch break in Cine, coffee break in unique Göcek, which is also a very posh and popular place to visit among yacht people... and voila, we are in the picturesque and unique city on Aegean Seashore, Kas! There we will check in to the NESLISAH Yacht. Dinner on shore at the Smiley’s seafood restaurant. And yes, if you want to have some Samba and Ramba, the lively nightlife of Kas is just there... in a short walking distance!
Day 09 - Sunday
Kastellorizo - Antalya
Bike ° 193km ° b
Sea breakfast on our Neslisah Yacht and to the road... very nice D400! So on our last driving day, we follow most of the day the magnificent Mediterranean coastline where you get easily a great driving picture or two. In Demre we have today's cultural stop and visit (Santa's) St. Nikola's birthplace and the historic church he founded. This church is also accepted by the Orthodox Church as a pilgrimage destination. Before we hit the road to Antalya, we visit shortly the ancient Myra! After returning bikes in Antalya, the evening is yours!
Day 02 - Sunday
Antalya - Mersin
Bike ° 448km ° b
Our first Turkish breakfast and then we hit the road! D400 is a bit serious our 1st hour to Kizilagaç! But from there it will be better and better all the way to Mersin! You will love it! We will drive today also through one of Turkey's
popular holiday destinations, Alanya!
Our destination today is Mersin, which is lively harbour city with a lot of Mediterranean coast line! And yes, we will stay overnight near the shore!
Day 04 - Tuesday
Balloon - Shoes - Taxi - Bike? :) ° b
Day off, it means also Cappadocia as you like! If you are an early bird, one great thing to do is a Balloon tour. It is wonderful, however, you need to get up 0430am! Balloon tour or not, we have a local Cappadocia guide to show you the places… it’s a big area and you get more out of it with a guide. But that said, you are very much free to stroll around with your own timetable if you want! There is also naturally a lot of shopping possibilities, but we do recommend shopping for later because Cappadocia is not the cheapest place if you want something bigger.
Day 06 - Thursday
Pamukkale - Kusadasi
Bike ° 235km ° b
Today you have also a possibility to rise up when the sun is rising and fly over Pamukkale with a Hot Air Balloon! Small Pamukkale is a must also on foot, so after breakfast, we all take a barefoot walk to the white pools.
Before noon we hit road… and surprise surprise, it will be a beautiful ride also today! Our first destination is Ödemis, where we will have an afternoon coffee or with Mustafa, who is the owner and artist of Akrep Custom Bike Garage! Most of the time there is some nice building project going on!
Before Kusadasi we will have a stop at the local Handicraft Center which is also like an art gallery. This center is co-operating with the Ministry of Culture and Tourism and they are also teaching women from local villages carpet weaving! However, you are not obliged to buy anything, but want to show you local traditions… and some of the carpet weavers are real artists!
We will end our great day at Turkey’s Riviera, Kusadasi, which is of the shores of the Aegean Sea!
