What To Do in the Surroundings of Kemer?
The surroundings of Kemer are characterised by Mount Tahtali, the impressive mountain peak of Bey Dağları Mountains situated between Antalya and Finike Bay. It is possible to start climbing tours from Beycik. In 2007 Olympos Teleferik cable car was opened. It leads to the peak at 2366 m above sea level. The Valley Station is situated about 10 km from Tekirova and Çamyuva at the eastern face of Mount Tahtali. At the foot of the mountain tourists find the Lycian Way, a long-distance footpath between Fethiye and Antalya. Kemer Beach offers a great number of sports activities as well as relaxing programmes. It may come as a surprise, but there is even a ski resort in Saklikent, a village about 200 km from Kemer. The area is also very attractive for cyclists and mountain bikers, who can choose from a great variety of tours. In February 2018 the Tour of Antalya, a road cycling competition, was held for the first time. Although the weather conditions were not always perfect, the competitors had a very exciting race, even Austrian and German athletes joined this challenging event.
