Your tour starts with hotel (or airport) pickup in the early afternoon, followed by a drive to the Kemer region, where Beydaglari Coastal National Park (Beydağları Olimpos Sahil Milli Parkı) is located.
The area was an important center for ancient Lycian civilization, and the ancient cities of Olympos and Phaselis sit just 10 miles (15 kilometers) apart. Your private guide takes you through the ruins of Phaselis, which was founded about 2,700 years ago, and was known for its production of rosewater and perfumes. Explore deserted streets that once led to busy harbors and see the towering city gate, old marketplace and theater, and Roman baths.
Continue to Olympos to visit the ruins of a temple to Hephaestus, the ancient god of fire. Have time to relax at the beach then eat a meal before driving to Yanartas. There, take ahike up a rock staircase to reach the site where fire bursts from vents in the earth. Watch the flames flicker against the night sky — a spectacular sight — and hear why Yanartas is rumored to be the inspiration for the mythical fire-breathing Chimera monster in Homer's Iliad.
After spending time at Yanartas, return by car to Antalya. Your tour ends with hotel drop-off in the late evening.
