Quad biking in Side is the most popular tour in the area for people seeking adrenaline. You enjoy the drive, the twists and turns that take your breath away, the puddles and rivers, and the interesting track. The tour takes place in the forests of Taurus Mountains in Köprülü Canyon Park.
Helmets for your safety, experienced instructors, and four-wheel drive ATVs in good working condition are there to make sure you have a good and comfortable rest. You will receive a training session at the beginning, and you will get a chance to drive your ATV and take it for a test drive. The quad safari consists of two parts of approximately one hour each with a break for a short rest. You may reserve either a single or a double quad. Children 7+ can participate accompanied by an adult while sitting at the back of the vehicle. You may drive the quad yourself if you are at least 16 years old. Total tour time is approximately 2 hours. If you fear driving the quad, book a buggy which is more stable and perfectly safe.
A lot of people are confused: how can they come back to the hotel dirty after driving through puddles? Don’t worry, the safari base is equipped with showers, bring a change of clothes. We advise you not to wear white clothes on a quad safari and take sunglasses, a bandana or scarf to protect your face from the dust.
Transfers are included in the ticket price, as well as helmets. A comfortable minibus will pick you up from your hotel and bring you back rested and satisfied.
Prepare for the wettest and muddiest experience you may ever have in your life. You will experience the thrill of achievement when you negotiate the difficult paths and drive through the water successfully. This is an adrenalin ride that will last around two hours, and all along the magnificent scenery of the Taurus mountains and the distant Mediterrenean.
This is ideal for those of you that love to get down and dirty. You will experience an adrenalin rush like no other as you ride along the curves in the road and delve into the waters just in time to cool yourself down. River riding is a great time to wash of the dust and mud you are sure to encounter along the way but don’t be fooled there is always the return journey!
This is a great opportunity to live through something unique and experience an alternative to the run of the mill trips that become part of a standard holiday. Whether you enjoy the quad safari as a single rider or whether you enjoy the day as a family or group this will be one day of your holiday you are bound to remember fondly!
