WHY IS OUR SEASON IN TURKEY SO SHORT?

XANTHOS-LETOON RUINS tour - £18

As Turkey is located so much further south than Greece and Croatia, the peak summer months are extremely hot. You can expect mid summer temperatures to hit the high 40ºC and even a dip in the gorgeous Med will not be able to cool you down!

From Kalkan you can explore the ruins of Xanthos-Letoon – one of the most important sites of Turkish antiquity dating from the Iron Age.

When we sail in late August and September the intense summer heat has mellowed and you will enjoy long sunny days and balmy nights, with temperatures closer to 30ºC and hence more similar to Greece and Croatia.
