3 Great Spring Break Bike Tours And Gulet Cruise Packages In Turkey For 2013
Spring break holidays are great for families to spend that quality time needed sometimes from the busy schedules of everyday routines. If you are planning a holiday away from home and somewhere abroad, Turkey has great choices to think about. Now depending on what part of the world you are in, generally Spring breaks are known to take place in mid February, mid March or mid April. For Turkey, a holiday break would be ideal in either March or April; but preferably April. This holiday time off from school, fits well with a one week vacation. As the weather is not super hot, a bike tour, combined with a boat cruise makes for quite a fulfilling time out. With so much breathtaking scenery, historical ruins and ancient architecture, as well as diverse culture, Turkey is a great country to get-a-way to.
One of the three superb packages to consider for a bike tour gulet cruise starts in the fabulous lively city of Marmaris. Marmaris is about 90 km from the Dalaman airport with frequent flights from around the world. So having to do a transfer to your boat is quite an easy process. The route combines both a cycling trip and a gulet cruise itinerary, professionally organized by experts in the industry. During this lovely bike boat cruise from Marmaris, travelers have the opportunity to see the peaceful part of the Caria coast. The route is titled Marmaris – Gulf of Hisaronu – Marmaris. It’s 8 days and 7 nights long. Embarkation begins on a Saturday and ends on a Saturday. But if you have more time, it might be a good idea to see the sights in the city of Marmaris before or after your bike boat holiday. Out of the 3 bike tour packages, this particular one offers 3 days of a cycling tour within the 8 day gulet cruise. On the days of the bike trips, lunch is not on board the gulet but rather during the bike tour. The tours start in the morning and usually end by tea time.
There is one more Marmaris bike boat cruise itinerary. This return trip travels from Marmaris to the Gulf of Fethiye. The route is called Marmaris – Gulf of Fethiye – Marmaris. Again it begins and ends on a Saturday. The only difference other than the route is that number of bike trips. This itinerary offers 2 days of biking and 5 full days of leisure with a trip to the Dalyan King Tombs in Caunos on the 3rd day.
The 3rd type of tour starts in the exciting and historical city of Bodrum. The Milas airport is a mere 40 minutes’ drive from the Bodrum harbor. Again not a bad transfer distance to meet with your boat and crew. This particular route takes you around the Gulf of Gokova – one of the most popular regions in Southern Turkey. Here you will have 2 days of biking and again the rest of the time is for you and your group to take pleasure visiting various beautiful destinations while soaking up the fabulous Aegean sun!
There is plenty of leisure time as well in between routes. While some places the guests will be met by the gulet after each bike tour, there will be times where the gulet waits for the cyclists to finish the tour and continue by sea to the next destination. The advantage with these bike boat cruises from Turkey is that they are completely private holidays. You are not sharing your boat or tour with anyone else other than your own group or family members. With all three predefined bike boat cruise packages, you can choose from the recommended boat charters or select from the whole list. Therefore, the cost of these unique tours is based on your budget. The bike routes and prices remain the same (calculated per person) – while the cost of the trip only varies based on the charter price of your boat. Another great advantage with these bike cruise holidays is that you do not need to haul your bike (included in the price) on or off the gulet. The bikes are transported by land for you to meet you wherever you are.
The bike tours are not back to back; therefore guests have the time to themselves to relax and enjoy the cruise, the boat, the destinations, and all the pampering services on board by the crews. There’s nothing more assuring and pleasant than a private bike boat cruise with family or friends.
