Chimera Olympos Tour – Jeep Safari takes our participants to the most mystical and mythological places of Kemer. This is the legendary place, the famous mountain, Mount Olympos, home to beautiful goddesses, brave warriors and mighty gods!
In addition to its ancient texture, Olympos, which means “Big Mountain” in Greek, impresses with its dense forests, enchanting sea view and rounded pebbles on the shores and has an excellent nature worth adding to your list of places to visit in Kemer. Even Caretta turtles live on this beach!
All these features make Olympos one of the best nature tourism centers of our country. Therefore, we are organizing this special program that will bring mythology and nature enthusiasts together.
During this trip, we will visit the following attractions:
Perhaps the most interesting and fascinating stop of the Chimera Olympos Tour program will be Yanartas. The name of this formation, also known as Chimera, is derived from a mythological name given to fire-breathing hybrid creatures of various animals.
Nevertheless, do not be afraid, you will not encounter any monsters… You will only be able to see the flames emanating from the mouth of the Chimera and that have not been extinguished for centuries: Flaming rock Chimera has not been extinguished under any natural conditions due to the endless source of gas. Also, since it is the navigation point of ancient sailors, it is a mythological story and a beautiful view.
The relaxing and magnificent view of Olympos Beach, which is the cleanest pebble-covered beach in the world with a length of 4 km, will purify your mind and soul.
Our Chimera Olympos Tour will continue with a visit to Olympos Beach, which brings together magnificent features such as the pine forests along the coast, the National Park with rare vegetation, and the ancient ruins from the middle ages!
Moreover, if you are lucky enough, you can see the Carettas during our visit and witness how life began for them!
Mount Yanartas is the place where Bellerophon (an ancient hero) killed a mystical monster Chimera: right here a hero appeared and defeated a monster that left its flames behind, under the ground. Although it is underground, we will be able to see its flames above the ground.
We are sure that you will love Yanartas even more when you learn the whole story! Because thinking of Yanartas as the last breath of Chimera makes this fascinating place very attractive.
Olympos has a very important place for mythology fans not only with the legend of Yanartas, but also because it contains a part of the ancient Lycian city.
B.C. In the 3rd century, Hephaestus (Vulcan), the god of fire, blacksmithing, metalworking and craftsmanship and the husband of the beautiful Aphrodite, was the main god of the Lycian City Olympos. Therefore, there have been special festivals for him over the years. If you join our tour, you will see that the striking atmosphere and magnificent building remains from these periods are still standing here in all their glory.
In the dark, that is, at the best time to explore Olympos, we will visit this fascinating land with our professional guides and listen to mythological stories. We invite you to a very special journey to gain a complete comfort, entertainment and cultural accumulation.
