What to Expect

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.

You will stop for a swimming break during the boat tour on the lake. The lunch is at a local lakeside restaurant.

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.

Refreshingly Laid Back Day!!

September 30, 2015
4.0/5 stars

The entire trip was well organised except for a transfer in the morning where we had to wait at a petrol station for 30 minutes for our next bus to come and pick us up. That was not expected especially if you are travelling with your wife! Besides this goof up, the day was well planned and ample time given to enjoy the scenic wonders of the Canyon and the Green Lake.

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.

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!
