Belek Green Canyon boat trip is an all-inclusive 8-hour day trip with two swim breaks on the Green lake.
If you fancy a day away from the beach, but don’t want to give up on sunbathing, a day with a difference will be the coach to Green Canyon and a boat trip along the cool green waters of Oymapinar Dam. This is a tour as gentle as you want it to be, with a choice of watersports at the Lake, or simply a relaxed take it as it comes kind of day, walking around the beautiful lakeside scenery, or taking a long cool drink at a lakeside restaurant and watching everyone else in action.
High up in the Taurus mountains surrounding the Belek region, the lake is a manmade reservoir, famed for its amazing beauty. Called the Green Canyon since the waters are shaded by the lush green vegetation that grows high along the banks of the lake and canyon. This gives the water an almost translucent shade of emerald green, beautiful to see, and some of the cleanest water you will ever bathe in, at around 12 degrees centigrade, possibly the coolest too!
