Top Ten Turkey Off-the-Beaten-Path Adventures

Raft the Raging Coruh

Don't let the sleepy little town of Yusufeli fool you: Right in its backyard is one of Turkey's most raging rivers. Run the Coruh River and you'll be taking on Class IV and V white water, with craggy mountain scenery surrounding you. Unfortunately, a proposed dam could soon wipe out this spectacular stretch of rafting. In that case, head south for the Dalaman River, near Koycegiz on the Mediterranean, where Class III and IV thrills are on tap from April to October. Expect to pay about $65 for a day's rafting.
