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.

Have a relaxing time on a boat sailing in one of the world’s most beautiful lakes! The Green canyon will take you to another dimension with its amazing views.

  • 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 :)


  • Rating: 5 “I’d gladly go again”

    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.


  • Rating: 5 “Fantastic excursion!”

    Reviewed by Sarah from Dorking, United Kingdom on August 26th, 2011 We loved this excursion. Firstly out tour guide 'Ringo' was really passionate, entertaining and knowledgeable from start to finish. After a few pick ups we went off to the dam and stopped for a few minutes to walk up admire the views and take photos. Then off for the boat trip in the canyon. Perhaps not as relaxing as detailed in the description as quite a few children on board, but plenty of room as this boat was not packed with as many people as other boats we saw. Moods type music and cool tunes accompanied the trip. Half-way through there was some entertainment provided. The boats final destination was aside a floating area from which the first swim stop was provided. The water was cool, refreshing and welcome.
    We then got back on the coach and went for lunch which was cooked by locals and was wonderful and fresh and sitting with views over green lake. We had opportunity here to either go fishing or take a swim break in the green lake. The back to the hotels. Spectacular views.

    Reviewed by Gernot from Bautzen, Germany on June 1st, 2014 Trotz einer kleinen Buspanne war es eine Fahrt mit Bus und Schiff in die Natur des Taurusgebirges, welche bestens organisiert war. Interessante Ausführungen brachte auch unserer Reiseführer.


  • Rating: 4 “Alles gut geklappt - ein toller Tag mit netter Reiseleitung”

    Reviewed by Volker from Dortmund, Germany on May 25th, 2014 Ein schöner Ausflug - landschaftlich lohnend und entspannend.
    Besonders für Vogelfreunde ein Highlight: der Fischuhu!!!


  • Rating: 5 “Sehr empfehlenswert.”

    Reviewed by Mario from Bad Sachsa, Germany on April 26th, 2014 Reiseleitung, Busfahrer und Restaurantpersonal waren sehr freundlich und zuvorkommend. Ihr humorvoller Umgang mit den Urlaubern war jederzeit einwandfrei.


  • Rating: 5 “Der Ausflug hat uns sehr gefallen, die Natur ist ein Erlebnis”

    Reviewed by Natascha from Wiehl, Germany on November 18th, 2013 Der Ausflug hat uns sehr gefallen, die Natur ist ein Erlebnis
    Wir waren auch froh das wir nur Natur gebucht haben.


  • Rating: 3 “Die 3 Sterne sind ausschließlich für die Natur und Get Your Guide”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Limbach-Oberfrohna, Germany on November 3rd, 2013 Organisatorisch hat alles geklappt, ansonsten war es Massenabfertigung. Unser Boot hatte einen Reiseleiter, der keine Lust zum reden hatte. Ich weiß bis heute nicht viel über die grüne Schlucht. Laute Musik, die nach mehrfachem Bitten ein wenig leiser gemacht wurde und für mich mehr einem Vergnügungsdampfer gleich kam.
    Es wäre auch schön gewesen, wenn man von vorn herein darauf aufmerksam gemacht worden wäre, dass im Oktober der Wasserspiegel sehr niedrig ist und wir den schönsten Seitenkanal gar nicht befahren konnten. Und das ist sicher jedes Jahr so. Leider hatte man dadurch das Gefühl von "Abzocke." Das Mittagessen war, naja geschmacklich war es ok aber kalt. Das Salatbuffet war sehr ansprechend. Die Umgebung des "Restaurants" war einfach schlampig!


  • Rating: 4 “Schöne Tour, sehr informativ und gut organisiert.”

    Reviewed by Maria from Strausberg, Germany on October 11th, 2013 Ein Stern wird abgezogen, da wir eine deutsche Tour gebucht hatten, und sie schließlich tri-lingual war, Deutsch, Englisch, Russisch. Durch die vielen Übersetzungen kam bei den meisten russischen Teilnehmern Unmut auf und dies übertrug sich durch ihr Fehlverhalten auf den Rest der Gruppe. Der Guide bemühte sich trotzdem Fassung und Ruhe zu bewahren.
    Bootstour und anschließende Freizeit am Green Lake waren aber traumhaft und sollte jeder mal gesehen haben!!!


  • Rating: 5 “Einfach traumhaft”

    Reviewed by Monika from Dresden, Germany on September 6th, 2013 Es war einfach umwerfend. Das muß man erlebt haben. Auch die Busfahrt dorthin war prima.


  • Rating: 5 “Entspannter Tag in herrlicher Natur!”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Rostock, Germany on September 2nd, 2013 Komfortabler Reisebus. Reiseführer dreisprachig (Russisch, Englisch, Deutsch). Mittagessen gut (es empfiehlt sich, nicht das Hühnchen zu nehmen, weil das fast alle wollen und da eine lange Schlange entsteht, während man sich den Fisch einfach abholen konnte :-) )

    Die Natur war wirklich schön! Grün-bläuliches Wasser, felsige Klippen, zwei schöne Badestopps.

    Wirklich empfehlenswert!


  • Rating: 5 “Tolle Landschaft - ein schöner Tag”

    Reviewed by Michael from Freimersheim, Germany on August 10th, 2013 Tolle Tour mit nettem Team in malerischer Landschaft - W I C H T I G - Badehose/Bikini nicht vergessen


  • Rating: 3 “Landschatlich sehr schön.”

    Reviewed by Steffen from Rahden, Germany on August 4th, 2013 Die Tour ist im großen und ganzen sehr schön gewesen. Ich hättte auch gern mehr Sterne gegeben, aber die Reiseleiterin konnte nur Englisch obwohl in deutsch gebucht wurde. Getränke sind im Bus nicht angeboten wurden und zum Essen ist für eine kleine Cola6.00 € verlangt . Auf dem Schiff mußte man für Wasser 1.50 € berappen. Die wunderschöne Landschaft hat aber für vieles entschädigt.


  • Rating: 3 “Hab mehr erwartet.”

    Reviewed by Andrea from Berlin, Germany on July 23rd, 2013 Hätte mir auf der Fahrt zum Boot, die ca. 1h dauerte, Begleitung durch einen Reiseleiter gewünscht. Die Klimaanlage im Bus funktionierte nicht. Aber die Gegend ist wirklich wunderschön.


  • Rating: 5 “Besser konnte dieser Tag nicht sein!!!”

    Reviewed by Peter on June 10th, 2013 Sehr freundliches Personal, pünktlich einfach nur super... ich buche ab sofort alles in Deutschland, man spart und hat das gleiche Erlebnis!!!
