One of Mother Nature's more unusual masterpieces, UNESCO-listed Pamukkale is a spectacle of white, water-filled formations that has evolved over thousands of years. This full day excursion to Pamukkale from Fethiye includes breakfast and lunch as well as a visit to an onyx workshop.
It all begins with a journey through the ever-changing Turkish countryside. Stop for breakfast en-route and you'll be fuelled up to explore Pamukkale. Translating as ‘Cotton Fortress', it offers an otherworldly landscape of salt-filled terraced pools. Wallow in these inviting geothermal salt pools, whose waters are said to be beneficial for everything from your eyesight to rheumatism and asthma.
Then, make the short climb up the hill to the remains of the ancient city of Hierapolis – which was a hugely famous spa city in classical Phrygia, and whose remains are still very well-preserved today. Enjoy a traditional lunch in nearby Akkoy before visiting a local workshop dedicated to onyx gemstones.
