“Exhilarating drive”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

We didn't go rafting as it was late in the season, but the drive on a sunny January day was spectacular. From the blue water to the breathtaking scenery; a fantastic place. I was quite apprehensive on the section after the bridge crossing the canyon, but it was well worth the drive.

“Enjoy the views”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

I didn't go river rafting, but I enjoyed my coach trip to the Canyon. Beautiful views, ancient bridges, trees, waterfalls, and an excellent trout lunch. Perfect contrast to the hubbub on the coast.

“Koprulu Canyon experience”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

River rafting in Koprulu Canyon was an amazing experience, especially if one wishes to enjoy adventure, a dip in the river, rafting and enjoy raw scenic beauty. If I visit Turkey would not hesitate to get the feel again. The scenery is soothing, the water is crisp blue and one feels the tranquility in the ambience. Recommended if you wish to get high on nature!

“Amazing and a Must Do”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

I visited Koprulu Canyon multiple times, and the main reason is river rafting. It would be best described as safe, amazing views, and adventurous. I came across many first timers (including my wife, friends, and tourists) who were reluctant to raft, and I had to provide them with basic advice for better results and experience...

My advice is to purchase special rafting shoes (TRY20) and avoid slippers or going barefoot. You could ask the tour bus driver to stop at any shop on your way. Small rocks and pebbles could cause minor injuries. Everyone must wear the floating jacket, although I find it useless because most of the journey you can actually stand while in the water (or if you happened to fall in the water). Most rafting tours provide lunch (dont expect much of quality) and remember the purpose is rafting! You get to jump in the water from 5 meters (only for the brave ones). Water temperature could be between 5 and 9 degrees Celsius in May.

Bring some extra clothes and a towel. Dont bring valuables or cameras/electronics. You could leave your bag in the vehicle (generally safe). There are changing rooms available. The entire journey is recorded on video so you might want to buy it at the end. There are also photos taken during your rafting adventure and you get to choose which one to buy.

Other activities are also available, trekking, canoe, etc. If you are going to ride a canoe, make sure you are a good (not professional) swimmer and travel in groups.

Unlike most reviewers we didn't go rafting, but simply drove around in the car enjoying the lovely scenery. Really recommend doing this trip - very tranquil and scenic. Can only really be done in your own car though.
