A "1001 Nights" Theme Party

This party can be held in a hotel ballroom. It is a recreation of an authentic Turkish night, the way it was performed in the Sultans' palaces. The function room is decorated in a typical Turkish atmosphere. A small street market is created with little stands like:

  • Ottoman bijouterie (imitations silver bijouterie)
  • Calligraphy (you may have your name written)
  • Ottoman calligraphy (Hattat)
  • Spice (different herbs)
  • Porcelain (an artist is painting porcelain trays)
  • Traditional Turkish Dolls
  • Fes & Yemeni (Turkish Folklore)

Guests can buy these items from the stands.

In addition to the above, other street vendors (cucumber man, shoe shine man, pickled man, chickpeas man, Turkish sweet man, cookies man, house wine man) offer their goods walking around in their traditional dresses in their traditional selling trays.

The whole function takes place during cocktails while a traditional Turkish band entertains the guests.

After cocktails the guests are invited to the dining room. Then the Sultan and his viziers enter the room and sit in the Sultan's tent. The Sultan gives the order to start the entertainment and a non-stop entertainment starts. A folk dance group performs dances of different regions, including a special dance with candles. A Janissary band in authentic costumes, harem girls and a belly dancer entertain guests.

At the end the favorite belly dancer of the Sultan performs her dance and the Janissary's band enters once more the place, then the sultan salutes and they all leave the room. At this moment the orchestra starts to play international dancing music.

Jeep Safari

An experience in itself, the jeep ride can take you on different adventures:

Mountain Trophy

On this rally, speed is not only unnecessary, it is impossible: the breathtaking sights will invite the participants to stop often to take pictures. But there is a certain itinerary to follow and here the tricks will determine the winner; from a branch brushing the windshield or under a stone next to a spring, secret messages will lead the way to the meeting point where the hidden treasure awaits them: the barbecue lunch and the kebab skewer which is the gift of the day to each participant.

Through The Countryside

Many villages are perched on the Taurus Mountain slopes and in the narrow valleys skirting between the hills. The villagers are busy with their local trade, but they are also the authentic representatives of the proverbial Turkish hospitality. A pastoral table set up awaits the guests; the traveler has the right to be served first, so the village women hasten to roll out the flat bread, to serve around the refreshments and the men are busy lighting the fire. All the while they are proudly displaying their handcrafts, and if you are lucky, you are also invited to the future bride's dowry room where the ornamental gifts and laces are laid around for your admiration.

An Aspendos Evening

The antique Aspendos theatre, 45 minutes drive from the center of Antalya, can be reserved for large groups in the evening, for cocktails, cold buffet dinner and folkloric dances show. Special light effects and added decor bring us back to the ancient times.

The guests are led to the upper gallery illuminated by the fairy lights from candles. Cocktails and canapés are served while classic music plays. The dinner buffet is under the vaults. Then they are invited to take their seats to watch the folk dances in colorful costumes or a ballet performance by state artists.

Rafting in Koprucay River

Emerging from the Toros (Taurus) Mountains and running through a number of amazing canyons, Koprucay flows into the Mediterranean Sea to the south of Serik.

Koprulu Canyon National Park covers 36,000 hectares, including part of Koprucay and the ancient city of Selge. As Turkey's largest forest of Mediterranean Cypress, the National Park is rich in red pine, black pine, cedar, fir, oak and wild olive trees. The wild animals in the region include fallow deer, wild goat, wild boar, bear, wolf, fox, rabbit and various bird species. There are red speckled trout in the upper reaches and gray mullet in other parts of the Koprucay.

Course

Approximately 100 m before Oluk Bridge, the water is still and the river forms a pool. This is a good spot to start your trip and gives an inexperienced crew time to get used to the rowing technique. The bridge is reached by paddling against the current. Less experienced groups usually enter the canyon from the Oluk Bridge, while professionals may do so either from the falls near the start or from the Oluk Bridge, turning around further ahead to start the trip. The course continues after passing the falls, and areas of class 2-3 water.

The falls along the river add to the beauty of the landscape. After each waterfall, the Koprucay slows down, giving time to enjoy the majestic setting.

A concrete bridge is 10 km down the river and novices should complete their journey immediately before this point. Experienced rowers can continue into the first canyon after the bridge, but the second canyon is strictly off limits, since the river runs under rocks in paces. After disembarking at the end of the first canyon, which is about 3 km long, the left bank leads to an asphalt road.
