Alanya Manavgat river cruise is a popular excursion organized both in hot and cold season. You just can’t find more water than on this tour. We head downstream on a boat trip to the meeting point of the emerald Manavgat River and the azure Mediterranean Sea. First, we swim at Cleopatra Beach and then at the place where the sea and river merge. On our way up the river, chef prepares a delicious lunch for us. After lunch and swimming we will walk around the town of Manavgat to visit historic sites and the famous bazaar of the town.
Next on the programme is a huge waterfall on the Manavgat River. It’s about 40 metres wide and looks breathtaking. We will take lots of memorable photos during the day. In the evening we will be transferred directly to the hotel by a comfortable minibus. There are no hidden costs. Transfers, boat trip, ticket to the waterfall and lunch – everything is included in the price of the tour. Enjoy it!
Alanya is surrounded by natural parks and areas of natural beauty. The Manavgat River is just one of these beauties and what better way to explore it than by drifting along its calm emerald waters lined with forests full of flora and fauna?
More than just a lazy river ride, you may also have the chance to shop until you drop at the locally famed market that takes place in Manavgat on Mondays and Thursdays. Here you will be amazed at the sights and sounds of a Turkish market that will awaken your senses with the aromas of spices and vibrant colours of the market stalls. This is a great chance to experience a Turkish market and a typically Turkish shopping experience.
On this tour you will actually start at the Manavgat waterfalls and head downstream through the magnificent landscape taking in the stunning river banks as you head towards the Mediterranean Sea and the place where fresh water meets saltwater.
