Description

Have a relaxing day on a boat sailing in one of the world’s most beautiful dam lakes! The Green Canyon will take you to another dimension with its amazing views along its 2 canyons. Nature at its best!

This Green Canyon tour by boat is an ideal way to relieve the stress of daily life and enjoy a day out in a peaceful environment. Suitable for all ages, it will take you onto the Green Lake and through the canyon, surrounded by lush woodlands.

Start at the quay at the lake and cruise about 9 miles (14.5 kilometers) through the emerald green waters of the Green Canyon, taking in the superb surroundings. The area is home to the rare and endangered Brown Fish Owls, so keep your eyes open for the delightful creatures while you tour.

Relax on board the comfortable boat as you travel and grab refreshments from the on board drinks service while taking in the panoramic views of the Taurus Mountains range.

The Oymapinar dam is situated 7.5 miles (12 kilometers) north of Manavgat. Constructed between 1977-1984 it is now the fifth largest dam in Turkey, and the only one to offer boat and fishing trips. When it was completed it was the third largest dam in Turkey, meanwhile, other dams have been built and it has moved down to fifth place. The power station at the Oymanpinar dam has four underground turbines with a capacity of 540 megawatts, which produce 3% of the Turkish electricity. The dam is 185 meters tall, 30 meters thick at the its base and 5 meters at the top. When the lake is full, the water reaches depths of 200 meters.

great tour!

It was a great tour and the scenery was so beautiful, but we took this tour in february and it was so cold. So if your planning to take this tour in wintertime be sure to have warm clothes with you, but it was so worth it.

Laid back look at a beautiful location.

Green Canyon is way up in the hills outside of Side, and the cruise through makes for a great relaxing way to explore a bit of the natural beauty of the region.

great tour

We booked the tour in March when we were in Germany, and it took place on March 12th. Everything was a mess when we made the booking request via chat, and each person ended up having to pay 15 Euro in additional costs. Vigotour, the provider carried everything on location out in the best way and also had the best pickup service!

Lovely day out!

We were picked up from our hotel in a bus, the drive there from Alanya took a bit longer, but that was down to the slightly helpless bus driver. On arrival we could take in the beauty of the green canyon and surrounding taurus mountains for 4 hours. - incredible beautiful! One negative thing was the price of drinks on the boat and at lunch. But the included food was more than enough and really tasty. We used up our swimming breaks on deck :)
