As Turkey has been called “the cradle of civilisation”, on this coast with a rich history, added to the amazing spectacle of a sea with limpid water striking the abrupt cliffs, you will discover the archaeological richness dating back to 8th century BC of Greek and Roman cities which are admirably preserved, with a Lycian necropolis lost in the vegetation. Turkey has been a sailing paradise ever since man started to navigate. It offers a multitude of idyllic cruising opportunities in still unspoilt surroundings, particularly on the Aegean coastlines – a wonderful area with rocky peninsulas, thousands of bays, sandy coves and numerous historical remains.
Through this tour, you will have an excellent approach of an area rich in archaeological sites and still non-affected by new civilisation. In the daytime we follow the trails traced by shepherds on the mountain flanks with fascinating sea-sights On the way we take opportunity to discover archaeological sites dispersed in a luxurious vegetation, with the privilege of visiting those which are accessible only on foot. At the end of the afternoon we join our gullet to end the day with a sea-trip. Each evening choose a different bay for the anchorage.
