    What to Expect
    Akkaya Valley or Secret Valley is an idyllic location just a short drive from Dalyan, where you can appreciate beautiful scenery. After your 9:30am pickup, the first stop will be the famous Birds Nest Restaurant, situated in botanical gardens. Spend some time enjoying a drink while taking in the beauty of the gardens from your birds nest table in the trees. There are stables at the restaurant where guests can visit the Shetland ponies and ride the horses around the paddock.

    Take a boat up the Indus River to travel deep into the valley. On this 20 minute boat trip, look out for wild boar, storks, white tailed eagles and other amazing creatures, in the truly unspoiled nature that surrounds you. Whilst enjoying the dramatic scenery, your tour guide will tell you about the incredible history of the river and the valley itself.

    Enjoy a freshly prepared lunch, relaxing, and swimming in the cool waters of the river. There is also the opportunity to fish for rainbow trout and explore the river further by taking a paddle in one of the canoes. This is a real nature lover’s dream and a peaceful, relaxing day that you won’t forget. End the day with a drop off at your Dalyan accommodation.
