More then 900m descent each day and miles of fabulous trails to ride.

You'll experience spectacular views of the Olympos National Park as you ride through pristine mountain plateaus and high altitude cedar forests. The best part of our Mountain Bike Tours is that you can enjoy the thrills of mountain biking in Turkey's majestic Taurus Mountains without ever having to worry about breakdowns or uphills! You will be well looked after by a professional guide and the support van is never far.

Around lunchtime we come to the fabulous waterfalls of Karaagac.
After the break we cycle up and down through great pine forests to the Village of Yaniklar, where our final 8km climb waits for us. The tour finishes in Altinyaka Village.
