Tour schedule:

Day 1: Arrival in Antalya

Transfer to the hotel, rest of the day at your leisure

Day 2: Departure (ca.150 km)

At 09:00 a.m. you will be picked up from the hotel by a minibus and taken to the motorcycle pick-up. After the formalities and agreement about the tour course we start with the first tour day, which leads us through plantations into the Taurus Mountains. At the Aksu river we make our first tea break, on narrow gravel paths along the Aksuf river we climb up into the wildly forested mountains. For lunch we have very tasty trout and salad, at a family business. The route through the densely forested Taurus Mountains takes us back into the

fertile plain.

Day 3: Continuation of the journey (approx. 160 km)

Today we ride to the north-western part of the Beydalar National Park and reach an altitude of about 2,200 m above sea level. The Antalya ski area located there invites us to take a break. At lunchtime we have a picnic in the middle of nature at a small creek, on a campfire we grill the sucuk and enjoy the view. The route then continues on forest roads through the pine forests to the canyon of Güverucurumu. Then we get to the main road, which brings us directly to Antalya.

Day 4: Continuation of the journey (approx. 190 km)

The day today brings us to the west side of the national park of Beyda lar. We reach an altitude of over 2,000 m above sea level and enjoy a fascinating view of the sea coast and the adjacent mountain ranges. In a cosy circle we get to know the simple cuisine of the mountain farmers. The route takes us further through the impressive mountain landscapes of the Beyda lar to the coastal road, which leads us directly to the hotel.

Day 5: Continuation of the journey (approx. 240 km)

Today we start earlier than usual, the path leads us towards northeast. After about 50 km of paved main road we reach one of the most beautiful monuments, the amphitheatre in Aspendos. After the visit the winding mountain road leads us to the national park of the Köprülükanyon, over the Roman bridge we continue our trip and reach more beautiful canyons. At a farmer's we have a short tea break with flat bread and cheese. Afterwards, numerous short stops and breaks let us enjoy the unique landscape on a beautiful, winding road. At lunchtime we will stop at a trout farm. Afterwards our way leads on a winding mountain road along the river Köprülücay to Antalya.

Day 6: Continuation of the journey (approx. 160 km)

The route today takes us again towards the northeast, after about 15 km on the main road we reach a turn-off, then we ride through a flat, very fertile plain. We take our first break in a small rural town and visit a mosque. After the tea break our way continues on asphalt for about 8 km, then we reach a wildly romantic waterfall on gravel roads and after numerous brook crossings (swimming possible). The stony and difficult enduro track leads us further to an unknown ancient city. Afterwards we reach the idyllic village Kozan. Here we relax after this difficult stage and have time for a leisurely lunch. On forest roads and asphalt roads we reach our hotel in the evening.

Day 7: At your leisure.

Take the opportunity to relax a little or do some shopping before you go home. The extension of the rental motorcycle is possible for an extra charge, subject to availability.

Day 8: Journey home

Unfortunately, it is time to say goodbye again, but even the most beautiful vacation comes to an end. As a souvenir there is a CD of the most beautiful impressions of the motorcycle tour. You can of course extend your stay individually, we are happy to inform you about the variety of possible activities with or without motorbike.
