Outdoor-activity aficionados have started to take notice of Turkey. Water sports abound,be it thrashing the white-water in Yusufeli paddling over submerged ruins near Kaş or blissfully doing nothing on the sundeck of a gulet ( wooden yacht). Up high you can reconnoitre the best place for your towel while paragliding over Ölüdeniz, catch the breeze over Cappadocia in a hot-air balloon or tackle the wind at famous Alacati. In the mountains, Turkey has two way-marked long-distance trails, which are popular with trekkers and abseiling, skiing and mountaineering are options as well.
All of these activities you can organise yourself, through your hotel,or check out the tour operators offering activity-based tours.
