Eco Holidays in Turkey : Bike Tour and Gulet Cruise for a Week in May
Economical holidays await travelers in May. The temperatures are great and in between 20 – 25 celcius. This makes it quite ideal to enjoy an exciting bike trip in the great outdoors but also relax on board a Turkish gulet and cruise the day away under the warm Mediterranean sun. The added bonus is cost. Since May is not quite the peak season, prices are fairly good and make holidaying abroad rather affordable. So if the family or your friends can find the time to get-a-way for a week in May, this might be just the right time and vacation style to go for it! This is truly a wonderful alternative for yacht charters in Turkey.
Among the many places along the coast of Southern Turkey, one seaside city that has seen a great deal of improvements in infrastructure, design and layout is Marmaris. Just over an hour away from the Dalaman International airport, Marmaris caters to just about all holiday styles. Even better it is probably the greenest holiday hot spot this side of Turkey. From the moment you begin your decent down towards the city centre off the main highway, you will find that the roads are filled with the fresh scent of pine trees, and surrounded by hills filled not with real estate, but rather with even more pine trees. Lush and green Marmaris, meets with the blue waters of its bay from the Mediterranean sea.
With all these beautiful hills come a good choice in bicycle trails. Some offer them through more green forests, while other paths make it “panoramically” scenic with endless views of the sea – overlooking the Greek Islands.
May is an excellent month to embark on a cycling and gulet cruises. The tourist traffic is mild as it is all around and simply perfect for a wonderful boat cruise at sea and inland biking trip on the hills of Marmaris within its charming villages and towns. A one week bike tour and gulet cruise will offer you plenty of relaxation, yet a good volume of oxygen while riding through spectacular paths along the way. Biking and gulet cruising in Marmaris is really a match made in heaven!
The wonderful thing about these private gulet cruises – hybrid holidays – is that you have the opportunity to choose your own gulet boat charter; the well maintained bikes are provided to fit your height and weight and your guide knows the region like the back of his hand. There is no set package price. What you can afford is the way the holiday will be planned and organized for your bike and cruise trip and closest to your budget as possible. There is no set schedule. You go at your own pace and therefore it is very ideal for all ages 10 and up.
