Maho, Maho, Maho... An unbelievable figure of athletisism, professionalism, enthusiasm and energy, both during the activities and on the dancefloor. Suprisingly, for one of the hardest men in Turkey, he seems to be oddly intolerant of the cold so don't get too worried about his warnings. A rock music fan, his favorite songs appeared to be "Jump Around - House of Pain" and the Blue Peter theme tune. In his spare time, he enjoys hating flip flops.
He barely left our side for the whole week, and I thank him for that. He really knows his stuff.
1) Take something to eat for the Dalaman to Dalyan transfer if you think you might get hungry. Food at Dalaman airport is expensive, like £12 for a McDonalds and £4 for a bottle of water. I have no idea why.
2) Rafting - Wear walking sandals or very light trainers, quick drying shorts and t-shirt and plenty of suncream. Take a towel and a change of clothes, you'll get wet and the transfer back to hotel is over an hour.
3) Walking - Same footwear and clothing as for rafting, you'll get wet up to your thighs. Boots or trekking trainers for the short (~8km) walk along the ancient viaduct are advisable. Watch out for tortoises. Take your camera.
4) Sea kayaking - Same footwear again, but I quite happily went barefoot in the canoe. Take your camera, the ruined castle is stunning, especially if you do a bit of impromptu climbing to get a view...
5) Canyoning - This is fairly tough. Ankle support is recommended, but if you're used to hiking over difficult terrain and have confidence in your ankles then easy-draining trekking trainers with good grip are better. Neoprene socks are extremely handy and will make this day much more comfortable. You'll be in a wetsuit for about 6-8 hours, so consider wearing a rash vest to make it more comfortable and to keep you a little bit warmer.
6) Paragliding - Walking boots or trekking trainers. Wear anything you like, they give you a flight suit to keep you warm.
7) Relaxing - you'll need it!
8) Biking - Light trainers for footwear, comfortable quick-dry t-shirt and padded cycling shorts, sunglasses and cycling gloves. Take some change to tip the family that provide lunch, the food is incredible.
9) Lastly, take some food and drink for your return to Dalaman airport (especially in case of a flight delay) as the prices are extortionate.
Other useful items include: Mosquito repellant, antihistamines, an alarm clock and earplugs (to sleep through the call to prayer!)
