Explore the stunning scenery of Turkey on an eight-day family trip that both you and your teens will love. Wander around ancient ruins in Fethiye, Xanthos and Letoon, learn about the history of Fethiye and the Lycian people, take it easy on the beach and get the blood pumping on a hike. Swim in the clear sparkling waters off the coast and tuck into some delicious local food – including gozleme, which you’ll learn how to make during a cooking class! Take to the ocean on a cruise, swimming in the crystal waters of the Mediterranean, and look out for loggerhead turtles. You’ll then learn about the turtle rehabilitation efforts by local organisation Dekamer, and why Intrepid makes a donation to this rescue centre for everyone on this trip.

Why you'll love this trip
  • Cruise between islands and islets around Kekova and marvel at the fascinating submerged ruins on a relaxing boat trip. Enjoy diving off the boat and into the clear waters of the Mediterranean to swim.
  • Squeeze into the steep sided Saklikent Gorge and then scramble over the rocks to cool off with the kids in the melted snow of the Taurus Mountains. 
  • Feel ancient history come to life on the Lycian Coast with a day trip to Xanthos and its surrounds – a site of fierce struggles and great battles from decades past.
  • Visit the eerie ghost village of Kayakoy and discover why it was abandoned in 1923 – this spot might be a favourite for the kids, as it’s a pretty amazing photo spot with an interesting history of religious segregation.  
  • Learn how to make local favourite gozleme for lunch at a local restaurant, enjoy hearty, traditional Turkish breakfasts every day and tour markets to pick up some Turkish sweets – yum!
  • By travelling on this trip, you’ll directly support our Intrepid Foundation partner, CYDD (Çağdaş Yaşamı Destekleme Derneği). Donations help them provide scholarships and educational programs for economically disadvantaged youth in Turkey. 

Is this trip right for you?
  • There are some short, moderate hikes on this trip, with visits to the ancient cities of Xanthos and Letoon, broken up with some beach time. A moderate mobility and fitness level is recommended to enjoy this trip to its fullest. 
  • You'll need walking shoes, hats, sunscreen and a day pack for each family member to explore some of the historic sites.

I can really recommend Intrepid Adventures. Our trip to Turkey was fantastic. It was a really friendly group and I enjoyed all the activities, especially snorkelling in the sea on our island boat trip. It was a stunningly beautiful country.

We enjoyed this tour but felt the itinery needed to be improved with more fun activities added as it was a tour for families with teenagers.

Turkey with teenagers, put on your trainers, suncream and hats and enjoy the fish filled seas and if you're lucky like us swim with a turtle. Be amazed at ancient civilizations and be prepared for the Heat in these ruins. The food is generally so healthy with some teenage comfort food thrown in. We were really well looked after.
