Located in south-western Turkey’s Mugla Province, Marmaris is a fascinating port city on the coast of the Mediterranean visited by numerous tourists every year. This Turkish coastal city was a sleepy little fishing village until the late 20th century when a construction boom transformed it entirely. It is also one of the major centres for activities like diving and sailing. What would make your winter holiday in this part of Turkey even more pleasant is its Mediterranean climate, which is characterised by hot summers and mild winters. During your time in this Turkish port city, you’ll have many things to indulge in.
One of the exciting activities you can enjoy during your Marmaris holidays is mountain-biking or cycling. If you’re a nature lover or an adventure-seeker, this would be a great outdoor activity to try in this Turkish city. Your mountain-biking or cycling tour would take you through the most spectacular landscapes, giving you the chance to witness the local culture and some best-kept secrets of Marmaris, such as the fruit plantations and gorgeous pine forests. The cycling route in the region stretches to about 700 kilometres and you can choose from many routes ranging from downhill tracks to countryside tracks.
An off-road safari in a 4×4 vehicle during your winter holidays would allow you to explore the surrounding villages of Marmaris and all the wonderful offerings that they have in store for you. You’ll get the chance to witness the cascading waterfalls, a wonderful countryside, and other awe-inspiring sceneries during these adventurous tours. The four-wheel-drive would also give you some unique experiences of driving on roads covered with dirt and dust, as well as on the stone-paved roads. Each of these tours can accommodate about 4 to 8 individuals in a single vehicle. They usually begin early in the morning and include hotel pick-ups and drop-offs.
If you wish to try yet another off-road adventure with your family, a quad and buggy safari would be an excellent choice. They take relatively safer routes considering the presence of children during the tour. You and your loved ones would get to see some outstanding natural surroundings while taking the quad motor rides. As soon as you are picked up from your hotel, you’ll be given a briefing along with others in the group about the tour along with some security instructions to be followed. No previous experience, license, or skills would be needed to drive these vehicles.
You’ll also have a wonderful time during a horse safari, which is one of the outdoor activities offered by the local tour operators. The horseback rides are conducted in groups of 8 individuals and they last for about 3 hours. You’ll be in the company of beautiful pine forests and other great offerings of nature. All the necessary instructions about your tour would be provided in the briefing conducted at the beginning for about 15 minutes. You’ll be required to wear a helmet during the tour. Throughout the tour, you’ll be accompanied by a professional guide to give you complete assistance during the journey.
