Bicycle Tours in Dalyan region
The Linus-Apart cycling tours go through the most beautiful landscapes in the region, which may go up to a height of 1000 meters. All roads will reward you with stunning panoramic views and relaxed nature. The tours can be combined with canoeing, boating or hiking.
Around Köyceğiz lake
Early in the morning, we leave after a delicious breakfast at> Linus-Apart. From the harbor in> Dalyan first we go with a small rowing boat to the other side of the Dalyan river, where we will start cycling.
During the first part of this amazing and exciting tour you will cycle along the famous royal tombs and along the old city> Kaunos and Çandır Koy, a picturesque village. Take a first small break to energize for the next phase. Because now it is steep with a 10 percent slope through a forest to approximately 300 meters. Here you can enjoy the unique view of the ruined city Kaunos and the Dalyan delta. From the top, the descent on a paved road will lead you in the direction of Lake Koycegiz.
Note, there is no gravel sprinkled on this road, because that reduces the risk of slipping.
The area around the lake offers a large variety of flora and fauna with lots of birds, such as cormorants, herons and kingfishers. Bike relaxed through the flat landscape of the> Sultaniye Thermal Springs in the southwest of the lake. You should definitely take a tea break and enjoy the breathtaking views of the blue of the Köyceğiz lake. Further along the western shore, with its beautiful nature and fragrant citrus groves, you will pass a small island with an ancient Byzantine church.
Treat yourself to a fruit drink that farmers offer. Then drive on through Hamit Koy to the city Köyceğiz in the north, which gave its name to the lake. Small alleyways with quaint shops invite you to stroll through the city. If the legs feel heavy though, you can take a boat from Köyceğiz back to Dalyan - not without a renewed stop at the spa SULTANİYE, to refresh the weary bones.
For those who are still fit, there is a 30 kilometers long, almost flat road around Lake Koycegiz, an optimal closure of the 70 mile bike ride. With a glass of wine at sunset on a lounger in> Linus-Apart it will round off the successful day.
From Dalyan to Iztuzu beach
Who loves a sporting challenge and is not afraid of effort, there is a bike ride to> Iztuzu beach. The first part of the trail passes through a easy way. Without significant slopes, the road goes between the colorful oleander and under the rocky mountainside to the picturesque Sulungur lake. This offers - especially in the morning and evening - fantastic views. The way to the village of Gökbel is the most strenuous part of the route. The sporty climb takes about 15 minutes. But then you'll get a beautiful view of the lake and beach Iztuzu. After a quick descent you can enjoy a cup of tea or a cold beer on the beach in an idyllic paradise. Without pause, the trip takes about 45 minutes - but you should, because of the view, take a few breaks. More cycle tours
