During this off-road safari in the countryside, you pass through forests, hamlets, orange orchards, and monuments from ancient times. The finish point of the jeep safari is our rafting facility by the river in the village of Taşağıl. Upon arrival at the center, our instructors give information to you about the river, and the tour. Then they deliver the life jackets and helmets that you need to wear during rafting. To get used to cool water before rafting, everyone gets into the river and follows each other in the cool river which is known as “body rafting”. Then, your exciting and fun rafting adventure starts.
The rafting route is approximately 14 km and there is a lunch break at our restaurant in the middle of the track. The lunch menu consists of barbecued chicken, rice, salad, and bread.
