Next Best Thing
Watch out, Croatia and Greece, because has arrived on the scene. This has been a popular destination for those “in-the-know” for quite some time, but even in the craze of the high season, you can still find corners of peace. From its historical castles and shining ports to its local cafes and quaint cobblestone streets, you heard it here first; Turkey is where it’s at.
Seas the Day
Sailing the coast of Turkey is the stuff dreams are made of. Secluded beaches with calm, clear waters and warm, fine sand dot the coastline from town to town. Fishing boats anchor next to megayachts in the harbors. Luxury hotels and beach restaurants scream relaxation. It really doesn’t get much better than this.
Class It Up
There’s no better place to combine uplifting yoga with the opportunity to experience and connect deeply with yourself than in the stunning vistas of coastal Turkey. Located on the Aegean Sea, these calm port cities and crystal waters exude peace and rejuvenation. You know that a country home to hundreds of ancient healing centers and the famous Turkish baths has got wellness down to a T. It’s the perfect backdrop for settling into your zen after nonstop days of adventure.
Imagine climbing out of the crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean, rolling out your mat, and deeply breathing in the clear air while you revel in gratitude for this beautiful life. Turkey will inspire you to find your deeper zen (and maybe get a massage while you’re at it). As you reconnect with your center while watching an incredible sunset over the ocean, you’ll realize this is one of those magical moments that will stay with you forever.
What’s a little bit of yoga without some sore muscles to stretch out? Good thing Turkey is filled with historical paths for you to explore all of the hidden cultural treasures. Whether you’re in the mood for a run along the stunning port beach or a hike through the ancient ruins and cities surrounding the ports we stop at, there’s no shortage of epic things to see.
You’ll discover the history of Turkey while trekking through the one of our favs, the Bodrum Leleg Route, the peninsula’s first marked hiking path. The route leads through the stunning nature of the coastline to the ancient settlement of Sibda, with a panoramic view at the mountaintop. We agree with Miley Cyrus -- it’s all about the climb, but a great view at the top definitely makes it more worthwhile. The further you explore the mountain paths, you’ll come across even more ancient cities filled with everything your middle school history teacher talked about. We’ve gotta grow our brains with our muscles; it’s all about balance.
Turkish food is something you’re going to want to write home about. The country has been a melting pot of cultural influences over the centuries, and the cuisine reflects it. With a mix of Mediterranean and uniquely Turkish flavors, your typical meal will be filled with vegetables, meats, nuts, and all kinds of local herbs and seasonings. Spice, spice, baby. And the most important component of every meal: carbs. Bread, pastries, pita, the list is endless. The Turks eat three times their weight in bread annually -- our kind of people. The Aegean region is also famous for its olive groves and amazing oil. We may just start taking shots of this instead of tequila #healthiswealth.
With sparkling port cities surrounded by ruins from the good old days, daily yoga to recenter your body, mind, and spirit, oceans to be sailed on our very luxury boat home, extensive fitness programming by some of the best coaches in the industry, and much more included in our adventure travel experience in Turkey, there is no need for you to look further for your once-in-a-lifetime trip.
