Lycian Rock Tombs

Standing tall above Dalyan’s flowing river are the 2,000 year old Lycian Rock Tombs. The surrounding area just adds to the magnificence of this ancient site. The riverbed and forests are both rich with wildlife and natural beauty. So take a cruise and weave through the water, exploring the shores and uncovering its hidden treasures as you go.

Sail past the ancient King’s Tombs of Kaunos that have been carved into rock. The elaborate designs are well preserved and have an air of mystery about them. Travel at night for stunning views of the phenomenon lit up by the golden glow of the sunset. Lycians believed that the souls of their dead would reach the afterworld via a winged siren-like creature, so these magnificent monuments were carved into the sides of the cliffs and along the coast.
