Itinerary

When you arrive to the port of Bodrum, your private guide will be waiting to lead you to your own luxury vehicle, in which you can relax as your private shore excursion.

Depart from port of Bodrum and you will start visiting Bafa Lake. The lake is surrounded by the Latmos Mountains (Turkish: “Besparmak“) which rise up to 1400 meters. These mystic mountains are an excellent area for ambitious hiking and trekking tours. Since 700 A.D hermits and monks have left their marks on these remote mountain slopes. Byzantine Monasteries and hermit caves are a favourite destination for study trips.

The Village Kapikiri is a particularly suitable location for study and hiking trips. Situated close by the lake and below the Latmos Mountains, but not far away from the town of Bafa, where the turn-off to Kapikiri can be found. The village Kapikiri is built on the ruins of the ancient city Heracleia, the present houses in many cases resting directly on the ancient foundations. Stones from surrounding ruins where used to build the new houses, streets and property demarcations. Therefore, the whole village has received monument protection status. Your last visit will be to Didyma. Didyma means “twins” and it was associated by some as being the meeting place of Zeus and Leto to have their twins Apollo and Artemis. Didyma was famed as a prophecy center dedicated to Apollo, which served a similar purpose as the Delphi of Anatolia. It was not a city but a sanctuary linked to Miletos by Milesians with a 19 km/12 mi sacred road. After all the visits, you will turn back to port of Bodrum.
