Horse-riding in the mountains!
I really love to horse-ride, so ofcourse I had to try it in Marmaris.
This trip really was a bargain. I payed just 14,000,000 turkish lira.
I booked this excursion at one of the many small stalls that sell all kinds of things to do.
I was picked up at my hotel. Taken to an amazing horseriding school up in the mountains. Then I was given a beautiful horse, with all the equiptment to ride. The instructor spoke very good English and understood I was a capable horse-rider, so he let me go at my own pace. We spent 2 hours riding, had a break, the spent further 2 hours more riding back. I would recommend this trip to a first time rider or an experienced rider.
Once a village town
MARMARIS (in ancient times called Physkos)is one of the most attractive maritime parklands in Turkey, situated on a bay, backed by rugged pine-clad mountains. It is located in Southwest Turkey, in the province of Mugla, where the Aegean & Mediterranean seas meet and splits the two seas with a long and narrow peninsula. It makes an excellent starting point for exploring the area and the Aegean cost line. To the north lies the Gulf of Gokova, to the south the Mediterranean, to the west Datca peninsula and to the east Koycegiz lake. In ancient times Marmaris called Physkos and was an important stage on the Anatolia-Rhodes-Egypt trade route. In the 16th century Suleyman the Magnificent had a citadel built on a hill, the remains of which can still be seen today.
Marmaris used to be a sleepy fishing village some years before but in ourdays is a typical tourist resort for enjoy sea and sun. It has around 10.000 inhabitants but many more come during the summer, especially people with package tours that stroll along the brightly lit and palm-lined promenade, drink cocktails in one of the many pubs, swim in some beautiful beaches or watching football replays in the cafés.
