Bike, cruise and sail along the best-preserved coastline and most scenic routes of the wine dark Aegean Sea as Homer described in the Iliad. This unique coastline has a rich history dating back to ancient Caria, homeland of Herodotus. Discover the ancient cities of Halicarnassos and Knidos, medieval Bodrum Castle, and Hellenistic rock-cut tombs in small villages. Our experience starts in Bodrum, a popular holiday destination for the rich and famous, with the stunning blue coastline, high-end hotels, lively night-life, and a wealth of luxurious yachts. Our bike routes leave this hot spot behind and discover the hidden gems of the small towns and villages. The quiet cycling routes follow the water’s edge, weaving in and out of small coves along the crystal blue waters of the Aegean. We journey through the rural areas in the highlands offering perfect vista points overlooking deep canyons and the Gulf of Gokova. The last ride goes along the Datca Peninsula through almond orchards to the lovely setting of the ancient theater in Knidos overlooking the unspoiled beauty of the ancient harbor. This incredibly rich program combines the ancient Carian history with the natural beauty of the Aegean Coastline and legendary Turkish hospitality of our diligent crew’s service as they pamper you onboard.
