The itinerary includes a short stay at the coastal town of Kas, a two-night gulet cruise along the turquoise coast, sea kayaking to Kekova Island plus mountain biking, diving and snorkelling. For those that want even more, then there are two free days to relax or take part in further optional activities.
EXPLORE A WHOLE NEW WORLD
EGYPT: Felucca Adventure
- Egypt is one of the closest destinations to the UK for virtually guaranteed September sun. The Egyptian pound also still offers good value for money meaning the destination is also great value on the ground. A two-day Felucca cruise along the Nile is one of the trip’s highlights, with other forms of transport including train, horse-drawn carriage and donkeys - all of which help to immerse travellers in to the Egyptian way of life. This 10-day trip includes all of Egypt’s iconic sights, including the pyramids, the Sphinx, Aswan, the Valley of the Kings, the temples at Luxor, plus Cairo, where there is free time to explore and test haggling skills at the bazaars.
JORDAN: Petra and Wadi Rum
- For centuries, the deserts of Arabia have held a special fascination to Westerners and The Adventure Company’s 9-day Petra and Wadi Rum trip allows travellers to find out why. Enjoy the nature and landscapes of Dana Nature Reserve and see the Treasury, Monastery and amphitheatres on a visit to Petra. Heading out to Wadi Rum, holiday-makers will spend the night under the stars in a Bedouin-style camp before exploring further by 4WD. Bathing costumes are an essential as there is also a chance to float in the Dead Sea.
