Our adventure begins at the airport. Our representative will meet you and bring you directly to the marina of the town of Fethiye, where our beautiful catamaran Fountaine Pajot Lucia 40 will already be waiting for you.
So, you check into your cabin, and together with the crew go to the purchase. You will need to stock up on food for the entire trip. After that, we return on board and undergo an introductory briefing from the skipper. Now you are ready to sail and you can rest a little and gain strength for tomorrow.
In the evening, the classic Welcome Party awaits you, where you will meet all the participants of the cruise.
2 day. We dive into the underwater world of the Mediterranean.
Gocek Island – Yassika Island – Sarsala
We start the day at 6:00 with morning yoga.
For our first yoga class, we chose a great location – Gocek Island.
The set of exercises “Surya Namaskar” (sun salutation) is a popular and very often practiced morning technique. This is a very effective exercise that strengthens muscles and invigorates all day long. Just what we need early in the morning by the sea in Turkey.
Then we head for Yassiсa Island. This is a corner of almost untouched nature. We moor and go down to the shore. Yassica is covered with pine forest and olive groves, where you can relax and unwind in peace and quiet. In addition, there is a great beach and interesting diving sites, so you will have something to diversify your leisure time.
In the evening we will go to the Sarsala bay and visit a small restaurant where you can taste local seafood.
After dinner we will stay overnight in the bay.
3 day. Morning yoga and relaxation.
Sarsala – Akvaryum – Cleopatra Hammam
Today we will visit one of the most picturesque beaches in Southeast Turkey in the Sarsala Bay. It cannot be approached from the shore, so there will be no hotels, restaurants and crowds of tourists. For morning yoga – the very thing!
Wake up at 5:30 – morning yoga and meditation.
After breakfast we head to Akvaryum bay. The water here is clear as a tear, and you can see the bottom at a depth of 30 meters! In Aquarium Bay (now you understand why it is called that?), There are simply first-class conditions for diving and snorkeling, all marine inhabitants are visible, as if they were floating in the air.
The next point on our route is a very interesting location, which is called Cleopatra Hammam. The local area is covered with beautiful pine forests. There is a very pleasant and fresh air with the aroma of pine needles. The sea water in the baths is light blue and very clean. According to legend, Queen Cleopatra loved to take baths here in the place where a hot underwater spring brings its waters to the surface. Water from this source contains many trace elements (Ca, Mg, etc.). People believe that if you swim in these baths, then you can look younger for several years at once.
After swimming in the Cleopatra Baths, you will feel a real surge of vitality, and you will be able to immerse yourself in meditation.
19:00 – Chakra meditation
Having gained impressions for the day, you will need to properly rest and prepare for the next day, which will be no less intense, so let’s drop anchor here and stay overnight.
4 day. Excursions to local attractions
“Place of power”
So, here we come to the equator of our yoga tour. As before, wake up and morning yoga (8:00 – 9:30 hatha yoga).
We go to a real “place of power” – on this small island there is something inexplicable that affects a person. His thoughts acquire incredible clarity and clarity here. According to legend, all the wishes you made here will come true in three days!
And in this “place of power” there is a large number of ruins from the times of early Byzantium, which have been very well preserved until the 21st century. At one time, the island was an important center for the spread of the Christian faith in Europe, maybe that’s why this power is felt in it.
On the island, we will conduct a cycle of yoga nidra.
Yoga Nidra, also known as Yoga Sleep, is an interesting practice during which a person consciously relaxes and goes into a state of controlled sleep. At the same time, it is a training for the mind, when we go into deep relaxation as soon as possible. Yoga nidra is useful not only for those who are tired in body and spirit, but also for those who have lost their taste for life. This practice will allow you to rejuvenate and regain your lost mental and physical strength, so that you can then return to normal life.
After yoga classes we will stay here overnight.
5 Day. New impressions.
Oludeniz – Butterfly Valley – Gobun Bay
As usual, we start the day in the morning. 6:00 – yoga class.
Today we’ll start with chakra yoga and meditation in motion. You will flow into different positions (called asanas) while focusing your body, mind, and breath into one whole. You will practice managing your energy, trying to balance it. Next, you will get acquainted with the chakras (energy centers), try to open them and establish the normal work of each. Through this practice, you will be able to restore your body, its physical and mental parts, and develop a sense of energy.
Then we have breakfast and transfer to Oludeniz according to the program. This place is rightfully considered one of the most beautiful in all of Turkey. Oludeniz is no worse than the Caribbean, Maldives, or Seychelles, and the local Blue Lagoon beach is famous for its purest sand and blue sea waters. You have to see it with your own eyes.
So we moor and go for a walk. In addition, here for an additional fee you can see all this beauty from a bird’s eye view. Paragliding at your service! Here’s where you can get some really awesome photos!
If you want, you can visit an additional location – the Butterfly Valley nature reserve. It is a small but very beautiful canyon by the sea. There is a small waterfall and a stream that feeds numerous lavender-scented vitex bushes. We will be here in May, just in time for their bloom, so you will see with your own eyes why this canyon bears its name.
For the night we go to the Gobun Bay, which is located nearby.
6 day. We delve into yoga, we study relaxation techniques.
Gobun Bay – Yassica Island – Gocek
The morning begins at the picturesque Gobun Bay. This is a stunningly beautiful place where we will have our traditional morning yoga class.
For the “larks” after the morning yoga we have an offer – at 8:00 trekking to Mount Gobun from where an incredible landscape opens up, and our skipper, as a professional guide, will guide you. The rest during this time will be able to continue meditation or swim in the bay.
At 10:00 we leave for the Yassica Islands. It is a small group of islets of various sizes that resemble a lagoon in the tropics. There are no buildings here, so you will see the nature of Turkey in its pristine, untouched form. The largest island has a very picturesque location – a promontory that stretches far into the sea and forms a small semi-enclosed pool.
After Yassica we go to the final point for today – Gocek. Here we will drop anchor and spend the night.
But before going to bed, we will again practice a little yoga. Today we have wave dynamics. What is Wave Dynamics? This is a complex of movements, the purpose of which is to develop joints and improve the overall balance of the body, aligning the work of both hemispheres of the brain, removing blocks, and eliminating all clamps.
7 day. Morning yoga at sunrise and light rest.
Gocek – Kizil Island – Fethiye
Morning yoga at 7:00!
Then we have breakfast and free time according to the plan. We can dine in asmall restaurant Likya-Onno, the cuisine here is simply “lick your fingers”, a place in a secluded cove, with a small pier and a harbor. After refreshing, we will go to the Kizil Island. We swim to our heart’s content, relax, sunbathe.
Then we go to our final point – the city of Fethiye.
During this week, everyone has become very united and a new sea family has turned out, so a festive dinner in one of the colorful restaurants in Fethiye will be the logical end of our sea cruise. Overnight stay and on Saturday morning we rent the catamaran.
