This Famed National Park Awaits You on a Tour of Mount Olympos

Take a cable car and go to Tahtalı Mountain, also known as Lycian Olympus near Kemer, a beach resort on the Turkish Riviera in the Antalya Province, Turkey. It was known as Olympus and Phoenicus in ancient times and is part of the Beydağları Coastal National Park. Visitors can ascend the summit with the Olympos Aerial Tram on Turkey tours in Olympos.

This mountain, which enjoys 300 days of sunshine a year, can be climbed within one day and the view of the sea and Antalya is well worth the effort. The sunrise from the peak, for those willing to sacrifice some sleep, is dazzling.

Parachuting is possible here with excellent wind and has stunning views. Besides an important climbing and hiking centre, Beydaglar Mountains also offer superb winter sports.

Spectacular Roman ruins are dotted between the village and the sea, creating a maze of pathways through colossal columns and statues. Scaling the surrounding mountains takes you to even more intricate remains of the ancient architecture. Tour the ancient site of Olympos, and unlike others in Turkey, these impressive structures are partially overgrown and succumbed to the lush nature surrounding it and demands slow and thoughtful exploration.

A short journey from the town of Olympos is the awe-inspiring Chimaera of Cirili, which is a collection of eternal flames that dance and twirl on the rocky landscape hypnotically. A visit late at night will provide you with a memory that stays with you for as long as the flames burn.

The village itself seems to be handcrafted by a collection of trendy artists. Olympos is famous for its unique treehouse accommodation, and a walk through the town will cross several unique backpacker hostels that are perched high in the treetops, constructed from local timber and hand painted with intricate designs.

Even though it is famous for its beauty and distinction, it is the adventure activities that make Olympos one of the best places to go in Turkey. Thousands of rock climbers from all around the world come to the village every year to ascend the jagged cliffs and steep crags on best tours in Olympos.

Scuba divers come to see the enthralling shipwrecks off the coast. The adjoining beach is great for swimming and relaxing, while mountain bikers and hikers can immerse themselves in an excellent environment that can only be discovered in this part of the country.

Not many places offer the diversity and excitement of Olympos, and no matter what the reason, it should never be missed when travelling through Turkey on private Olympos tours.
