This early morning start from Bodrum is where you catch the world waking up, stopping for an early breakfast of traditional Turkish food, ready for the next leg of your journey. Later you will stop for lunch at the village of Akkropu. The village is known for its much photographed, ancient bridge, underneath which you will soon be passing along the frothy waters.
When you get to the rafting base, you will be greeted by your guides for the day and given your safety equipment before being shown your raft, and given a short test ride on the calm waters of the base. When everyone is ready to go, you begin your adrenalin packed tour of the jade waters.
You will be travelling on two rivers during the course of the day the Koprulu Cay and the Dalaman rivers. Among the rocks and often green landscape, you will adapt and negotiate the waters both rough and gentle. The route takes around 3 hours to travel and about halfway you will be able to stop for a swim break and enjoy diving from the cliffs into the waters of the river, before you set off on the final leg of your rafting adventure.
