If the thrill of the off-road is calling you, look no further. The Quads or ATVs as they are sometimes known are waiting for you to jump on and take off. And what a take off, along a specially prepared trackway through the mountains, across rough terrain, mud tracks and dust tracks and even through the river waters. You can have a passenger ride pillion with you, or you can drive alone, the choice is yours. Travelling in convoy across the pine clad mountains with the backdrop of the Mediterranean, is a feeling of freedom unlike any other.
As you negotiate the obstacle track and complete each level of difficulty, your confidence and sense of achievement will grow. Even the most tentative of drivers come away from the Quad Safari with that glow of success that is so pleasing to see. For old and young alike the chance to ride the wild ATVs in the most beautiful of settings, is an opportunity not to be missed.
In 2023, price of Manavgat Quad Biking is 25 € for single quad vehicle, 40 € for double quad vehicle. Quad Safari lasts 2 hours.
You will be picked up from your Manavgat hotel at the time quoted on your purchased ticket. The tour goes out two or three times a day, depending on numbers. You will then be taken to the Quad Base by comfortable air conditioned transport. On arrival at the base you will be greeted by your professional service guide/instructor for the session who will give you a safety briefing about driving the quads. You will be given your safety equipment and take a test drive on the base itself. When your instructor is satisfied that everyone is ready, you will begin your tour, in convoy, up to the start of the route where the fun begins. You will travel with two instructors, one at the rear and one leading. This is in the unlikely event of you having a problem, either one of them can be with you instantly.
Through varying terrain and different obstacles you will drive towards the end of the course and return to the base. This takes approximately 2 hours and you may even have time for a cooling dip in the river to wash off the dust and splash around.
Back at the base, you will be congratulated on your successful drive and have the opportunity to view any photographs taken by the resident photographer, with a view to purchase, before you are then taken back to your Manavgat hotel.

Though you may, if you wish, bring your camera along, be aware that the tour is often very wet and muddy and any valuables should be carried in a waterproof container, or better still, left at the base. Don’t worry, you will be having too good a time to worry about taking photographs. Better left to the experts who will be snapping away on your behalf all day. You can view the on site photographer’s work when you return to base and be given an option to purchase what you wish.
