Explore At Your Own Pace

More and more people these days are demanding personal and meaningful vacations, rejecting large package tours to travel in small groups, with good companions. These discriminating travelers want to be physically active and intellectually challenged, without rushing from one place to another. They want to absorb new environments, not just watch from the bus, take pictures and move on to another hotel. They don’t want to spend long boring hours on the road; instead, they prefer to focus on special areas and visit them at an enjoyable pace, meeting real people and learning their culture and customs. These travelers are tired of mass-produced food and big concrete hotels with lots of facilities, but no character. They realize that authentic meals and accommodation are important aspects of the travel experience.

Hike’n Sail Travel has accomplished the difficult task of combining all these attractions inactive and memorable trips.

32 Years Of Experience!

Our Unique Charters

An outstanding feature of our programs is the boat charters. On our yachting tours, we emulate the spirit of the great Turkish intellectuals who, in the 1950s, explored Turkey’s ancient sites by sailboat. These pioneers, Cevat Sakir Kabaagac, Azra Erhat, and Sabahattin Eyüboğlu, enlightened us with their important research on Anatolian civilizations and mythology. Azra Erhat’s Dictionary of Mythology is still the standard work on the subject. Cevat Sakir, who is known as ” The Fisherman of the Halicarnassus”, wrote half a dozen scholarly books as well as two dozen short stories inspired by idyllic ancient sites and trails. These works helped to popularize mythology and archaeology among young people. Our voyages through pristine scenery and less-traveled historical sites honor the work of these pioneers, unlike other cruises that emphasize beer-drinking and sunburn.

 Carefully-Crafted Itineraries

The time spent on the bus is always the least desirable part of traveling. The routes we design for our programs, and our use of the boat to reach locations inaccessible by land, allow us to minimize this ” downtime.” By incorporating significant sites and periods of activity into each segment of land travel, we avoid the tedium of long drivers while still covering diverse landscapes and a range of cultural expressions.

 Comfortable and Inviting Accommodations

While on land, we choose accommodations where our clients feel specially treated. We emphasize small family-run guesthouses and “boutique” hotels with character and atmosphere. Many are housed in beautiful historic buildings. All are comfortable and convenient, and many boast especially striking
locations. We can also arrange accommodations with local families, for guests to experience the warmth and hospitality of home life.
