Bike rides from Dalyan


Renting a mountain bike in Dalyan is an appealing option in the cooler months; they’re available at better hotels and certain travel agents for around TL15 a day, or from the Lindos Pansiyon at TL25 for a quality machine.

The best local ride is to İztuzu beach: there’s one nasty hill en route, with ayran and gözleme stalls to pause at for refreshment in the village of Gökbel. This land route is recommended at least once, as you loop around the Sulungur lake and get glimpses of marsh and mountain not possible amid the claustrophobic reed beds of the Dalyan Çayı. Alternatively, bikes can be rented on the far bank, with various attractions accessible on both paved and dirt roads.
