Kayak Turkey!

Exploring the Turquoise Coast
A Mothership-Kayaking Adventure

This stylish kayaking trip in Turkey is set in one of the world’s best paddling destinations: the dramatic and diverse Turquoise Coast with its wild capes and hidden coves and ancient ruins.

This is mothership-kayaking at its finest: our home away from home is a luxurious classic 90ft sailing yacht, and with our kayaks we have unique access to remote and pristine areas where dramatic mountains form sea cliffs and secluded beaches. We paddle through spectacular sea caves and beneath centuries old fortifications; we marvel at the unbelievably clear blue ocean and watch turtles surface close by. In protected coves where our mothership anchors, we swim in warm water and, for those who want some extra exercise, meander along the shoreline on our SUPs (stand-up paddle boards).

On this adventure trip, layers of a fascinating and rich history unfurl before our eyes as we paddle and cruise along the coast. We explore the astonishing cultural sites: the tombs of Lycian kings hewn into high cliffs, perfectly preserved amphitheaters overlooking the sea, forts of crusaders and Ottomans. We paddle to an island where St. Nicholas is said to be buried and drift over the sunken city of Simena. And… … and we even pay a short visit to Greece!

Here, where the Mediterranean meets the Aegean Sea we savor exquisite Mediterranean cuisine and hospitality, enjoy a fascinating culture and have time to simply unwind and relax on board our gorgeous home on the water.

This kayak adventure is personally led by Dag Goering and Maria Coffey, the founders of Hidden Places Travel, who will ensure you have the trip of a lifetime.

Adventure Travel has been our specialty since 1991 when we started to explore the world's most spectacular places as photographers and writers. Several years (and several books) later we began sharing our experiences with others by developing and leading adventure tours. We founded Hidden Places Travel in 2000 and quickly became renowned for our unique, off-the-beaten-track itineraries. Our support of local communities and conservation projects gives our trips unprecedented access and our loyal following of repeat guests is a testament to our professionalism and nurturing approach.

We invite you to join us on one of our life-changing adventures.

Dag Goering and Maria Coffey
