Day 1

Fethiye: West to East sail departs

(lunch, dinner included)
Welcome to Fethiye! There is a 10am check-in at Fethiye Marina and then it’s time to board the gulet – your home for the next 4 days. It’s a tough ask, but your job during that time will be to cruise the Mediterranean coastline, spending your time swimming, eating and socialising with your shipmates and crew!
Today you visit Butterfly Valley, Oludeniz beach and spend the evening anchored at St Nicholas Island. Be sure to climb to the top of the island to savour the beautiful sunset. Overnight St. Nicholas Island.

Optional excursion: Paragliding at one of the best locations for this sport in the world - Oludeniz!

Day 2

St Nicholas Island to Kas

(breakfast, lunch, dinner included)
Today, after a couple of swim stops and lunch you get to spend some free time in the gorgeous settlement of Kas. Here you can shop ‘til you drop in the abundance of jewellery shops and boutiques or simply wander aimlessly around cobbled stone streets soaking up the ambience of this seaside fishing village. Overnight in a secluded bay.

Optional excursion: For those into being underwater there is the option of scuba diving around the shores of Kas.

Day 3

Kas to Gokkaya Bay

(breakfast, lunch, dinner included)
Today we sail past the sunken city. Once part of the original settlement that still makes up the island of Kekova, a devastating earthquake many centuries ago made this part of the town collapse into the sea. We will sail past for a closer look before anchoring on the opposite side to visit Kekova. Here you can wander the island, hike to the Lycian tombs, climb to the hilltop and enter Simena Fortress for some panoramic views over the coastline you have just cruised.

In the evening (high season only) there is sometimes the option of partying the night away at the Smugglers Inn (opening times/days are unpredicatable!). Overnight in Gokkaya Bay.

Day 4

Arrive in Olympos

Bid farewell to your gulet and crew and head onto Olympos and its famous treeshouses. Check into your treehouse complex, explore the National Park and make your way down to the beach for some more sun and swimming. Overnight Olympos.

Optional excursion: This evening you have the chance to visit Chimera – The Eternal Flame. This costs approx. 10 euros and you can book it yourself locally at your treehouse if you wish to go.

Day 5

Olympos and overnight to Cappadocia

(breakfast included)

Today you get a free day to relax, sort through your photos of the trip so far and perhaps post a few of them online to make friends at home more than a little jealous! Soak up some more sunshine and have one last swim in the Mediterranean before boarding your overnight bus bound for the Cappadocia region.

You leave Olympos in the early evening to meet the overnight bus in Antalya that will take you directly to Goreme. Overnight onboard the bus bound for Cappadocia.

Q: What time does my boat depart on day one from Fethiye?
A: Check in at our Fethiye office is at 10am, the boat then aims to depart between 10.30am and 11am.
Q: Is the tour fully guided all the way through?
A: This tour is an itinerary for more independent travellers to follow with everything included: accommodation, lots of meals, a 4-day cruise, entrances to sites in Cappadocia and transportation. There is not a single guide with you all the way through but you will have specialist guides looking after you and taking you around all the sites and museums while in Cappadocia. Of course you will also have your lovely crew on your boat.
Q: I am a solo traveller - if I don't want to share my cabin on the boat, can I pay a single supplement?
A: Yes, you can pay a single supplement - please email us for prices. You must also book your single cabin and rooms in advance.
Q: What food is included?
A: Full-board (breakfast, lunch and dinner) is included for the days on board your boat, breakfast and dinner in Olympos, a wonderful dinner and Turkish night for your first evening in Cappadocia, then 2 days of half-board (breakfast and lunch) after that in Goreme (Cappadocia). For full day-by-day details on meal inclusions, see the "Itinerary and Map" tab on the left.
Q: What if I am vegetarian or have other special dietary requirements, how can you help me?
A: You should tell us about your special dietary requirements before your tour starts and our onboard cook will do their best to cater for them on the boat. Meals on board are also served buffet style so you can pick and choose what suits your diet most. For the other meals on land there are always vegetarian options.
Q: Can I bring my own food and drink on board the boat?
A: You can only bring your own snacks onboard such as peanuts, crisps, biscuits etc. But you cannot bring your own drinks including water.
Q:Can I pay for my bar tab on the boat by credit card?
A: Our gulets do not have card facilities onboard. All payments for your bar tab can be made only by cash locally on your last day before you check out of the boat.
Q: Do I have to have any insurance?
A: We strongly recommend taking out travel insurance before you go.
Q: Are there any power sockets on board?
A: Some boats have power sockets in cabins and some have them only in the salon area. You can use the power sockets when the engine or generator is on. 
Q: Why doesn't the tour include the hot-air balloon excursion?
A: We used to include it (and the tour was more expensive as a result) but we found many guests were either afraid of heights, did not wish to get up so early or just did not fancy the idea. So by having it as an add-on excursion (and lowering the price of the whole tour) rather than an opt-out, people can choose to have it included.
Q: Are there towels provided on board?
A: No, you will not be provided with towels. You should definitely bring your own bath and beach towels.
