Alanya Lake Salda & Pamukkale Tour

Alanya Lake Salda & Pamukkale tour is two of Turkey’s gems – in one tour. Pamukkale (Cotton Castle, white travertine pools at the mountains filled with the purest water) and Lake Salda (the mother of Pamukkale, feeding Pamukkale’s springs, a lake with azure waters and shores of the whitest sand you can imagine). Surely you’ve seen pictures of them more than once on the internet, seen documentaries about them. You have never been there yourself? Then let’s go!

We offer you two tours: Economy and All Inclusive. If you choose the first, we will take you to Pamukkale and Salda Lake and back in a comfortable air-conditioned coach, an experienced English-speaking guide will tell you about the history of the places you will be passing through and arrange an excursion at Pamukkale Park and Salda Lake. The entrance fee to Pamukkale on this tour is not included (cost about $10 at the park’s ticket office), nor is the cost of lunch. Booking the second one also gets you an entrance ticket to Pamukkale (hooray, you’ll be saved from standing in a queue) and lunch at one of the local restaurants. We leave early each day, returning after 8pm. Please book in advance as tickets are sold pretty quickly.

  • There are no shopping breaks in this tour
  • You will have 3 hours free time in Pamukkale.
  • You will have 1.5 hours free time in Salda Lake.

Lake Salda & Pamukkale excursion would perhaps be better renamed the ‘white’ tour as you will be astounded by the brilliant whites of both the lake at Salda and Pamukkale. White will never have seemed whiter and leading brand detergents should be using these places in the adverts!  Of course, as well as the awesome scenery you will be exposed to the history and the culture that the sites have to offer and you will return home feeling like you have experienced some of the best that Turkey has to offer!

Alanya is the perfect location to access many other wonders in Turkey and perhaps one of the most fulfilling excursions is combing a visit to the white cascades of Pamukkale with the white shores of the Salda Lake both of which are popular destinations for locals to visit as well as international guests.

Salda Lake is formed inside a crater remaining from millions of years ago and is a freshwater lake.  It is located at approximately 1800 metres above sea level and is the deepest freshwater lake in Turkey.  The white shores of the lake will have you pinching yourself that you are not in a more exotic location such as the Seychelles.  The perfect virgin white beaches of the Lake appear as they do thanks to the high magnesium content in the water and surrounding soil.
