Mediterranean region's charming green paradise, Sapadere Village - Sapadere Canyon, is located within the borders of Alanya, 41 km to the center. Sapadere means a stream away from the road and it was more or less a hidden treasure known only to natives for many years and it is still keeping its silent, calming atmosphere even though you now can find it on many of the tourist maps.
Sapadere is famous for offering all shades of green!
Your 8-hour sightseeing tour of Sapadere Canyon from Side, will start with pick-up from your hotel in Side, drive through the wilderness of the Taurus Mountains, 1 hour break at Alanya City and arrival to Canyon. You will enjoy spectacular views of these gorgeous mountains and beautiful landscapes so different from the seaside.
The canyon is formed by erosion from water, ice and wind. The layers of rock were formed over thousands of years. But, don't worry, environmentally friendly wooden walkways make for easy access for all visitors!
A pleasant walk inside the entrance of the canyon will take you to the waterfall, offering clean, fresh air and turquoise water flying over the rocks, giving pleasure to the human spirit to admire the life, water! If you are brave enough to challenge the cold, refreshing water you can swim in the natural pools! We really mean refreshing as the water barely reaches 12°C even during the peak summer!
Those who get tired easily, don't worry! You can still enjoy this untouched nature using the facilities such as sitting places, WC, and a small cafe in the canyon.
And, be ready to take amazing pictures! Walking along the wooden paths, weave through tall rocks, and the stunning waterfalls; rich flora and fauna in the region... They will give you great shots!
During this trip, you will also visit the natural caustic cave called Cuceler (Smurffs cave) which just opened to tourism (2012). It has many different kinds of stalactites and stalagmites which are visible in crystallized limestone formations.
At the end of these trails, natural swimming pools, you will live unforgettable moments. A typical lunch of local produce and Turkish hospitality is the bonus!
