Overview:

Discover the beautiful Green Canyon by boat on a full-day tour of the Taurus Mountains. Swim in the clear waters and enjoy a relaxing day among beautiful scenery on this full-day excursion from Side, Alanya and Antalya.

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.

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.

Fishing is also an option on request. Head back to the quay, where your boat trip ends and you can reconnect for the transfers back to your hotel.

What's Included:

• Pick-up and drop off at your hotel
• Boat trip at Green Canyon with swimming breaks
• Lunch
• Insurance

What's Not Included:

• Drinks & Photos

Good to Know:

Swimming is possible from a platform on the lake, and breaks for swimming will be available during the boat trip.

    Reviewed by EMOKE from PEMBRIDGE, United Kingdom on August 31st, 2014 Nice view ,good service ,tasty food Thank you!!


  • Rating: 4 “great tour”

    Reviewed by R. from Nürnberg, Germany on March 15th, 2013 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!


  • Rating: 5 “Lovely day out!”

    Reviewed by Michael from Dingolfing, Germany on September 17th, 2012 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 :)

    Reviewed by Jürgen from Nürnberg, Germany on July 2nd, 2012 Great trip, nice guide, would go again


  • Rating: 4 “The drive through the grand canyon was an unforgettable experience.”

    Reviewed by Günter from Groß Schacksdorf-Simmersdorf, Germany on October 27th, 2011 As our shuttle bus left the main road and started winding north up the foothills of the taurus mountains, looking at the uneven roads you thought - where does it lead to now? But then on arriving at the banks of the reservoir, everything was pure idyllic nature. The boat ride through the grand canyon was the highlight for us, and will stay in our memories as an unforgettable experience. And the somewhat mediocre food didn't do anything to change that.
