Excursions from Antalya, Turkey

Excursions from Antalya, Turkey

Antalya is the most convenient base for excursions throughout the region, from Olimpos in the southwest to Alanya in the southeast.

Excursion to Termessos & Karain Cave
A perfect day-trip by car or tour from Antalya is to this breathtaking ancient ruined city high in a mountain aerie, so well defended that Alexander the Great passed it by. You can visit fascinating Karain Cave, inhabited for 25,000 years, on the same trip.

Excursion to Perge, Side & Aspendos
Perge, only a few km from Antalya, has impressive Roman ruins. Side too, along with fine beaches and a resort atmosphere. Aspendos has the best-preserved Roman theater on the Mediterranean, still used for performances.

Excursion to Bridge Canyon National Park & Selge
Köprülü Kanyon Milli Park is a beautiful, dramatic river gorge spanned by an ancient Roman bridge. At the top of the valley is the ancient Roman city of Selge. It makes a great day trip whether you go white water rafting or not.

Excursion to Kemer, Phaselis, Olimpos & Çirali
Kemer is a modern seaside resort southwest of Antalya, but Phaselis, a bit farther down the coast, is an ancient port now in a national park, and Olimpos just beyond it is a strange and wonderful mix of forest tree-house camps, secluded beach resort and ancient ruins. At nearby Çirali, the famed Chimaera natural eternal flame still burns as it has for millennia.
