Horse trips an alternative to sea, sun and sand
ANTALYA - Doğan News Agency
Horse tours are being organized in Patara between May 1 and Sept. 1.Tourism operators in the southern resort district of Kaş are looking to provide an alternative to the area’s sea, sun and sand by offering horse trips.
Tourists can spend part of their holiday overlooking the ancient city of Patara and viewing the sea and Meis, a Greek island just off the coast from Kaş, from the unique vantage point of a horse during nature tours with professional guides.
Visitors are brought to the ancient city to see the historical structures there, as well as to Patara beach via a forested path. Trips typically end at sundown.
The three-hour horse tours are being organized between May 1 and Sept. 1 over a course of around 18 kilometers. The tour price is 80 Turkish Liras per person.
Horse trainer and tour guide Ufuk İnan said tourists, particularly ones from Europe, were in search of alternatives rather than sea and sun. “We fill a gap in this field. We are drawing a lot of interest, especially from foreigners. They discover nature, history and the ancient city of Patara on horses, which give them great pleasure,” he said.
