Listen to Nature in the Valleys and Canyons
Situated just one hour’s drive from Göcek, The Butterfly Valley sits at the foothill of Babadağ, a 1,975 metre high mountain nominated for preservation as a World Heritage site. A wide-strip sand beach at a bay on the Turkish Riviera protrudes from the valley. In the form of a narrow canyon stretching over around 3–4 km, the valley's steep walls are 350–400 m high. A trail in the valley leads to two small waterfalls dropping from 60 m all the year around. In the middle of the valley, a creek runs, carrying water from a spring in nearby Faralya village to the sea. A road from Ölüdeniz to Uzunyurt, which is part of the Lycian Way route, runs atop the rocks around the valley.
Saklıkent is one hour’s drive from Fethiye, next to Karaçay, the border between Antalya and Muğla. Saklıkent, a natural beauty hidden in the mountains, it is 18 km long and at its highest reaches up to 600 m. It is a favourite picnic spot with rustic restaurants serving fresh trout and offering a cool refuge on hot summer days.
