White Water Rafting is a great fun. Have done this twice and I'm 66 years old, my Husband has done this 3 times and he is now 76 years old. we went with Taurus Rafting and have had no problems with them. My husband went with them again in 2018 and some of the lads recognised him. When we are in Side this year, I might go rafting again, but it depends on how my knees bear up. Great outfit
Amazing scenery, beautiful place for rafting tour in Turkey, The water is so beautiful and clear, we enjoyed the scenery drive along the canyon and enjoyed the rafting trip, we went in may when the water was not so choppy and I took my 21 months old for rafting trip, we both enjoyed it.

Manavgat is a fantastic natural area , water is very cool and green mountains are everywhere, i suggest to stay at least two nights to participate in the amazing activities around .
An excellent day spent in the professional and attentive care of Hamil and Mehmet at Koprulu Canyon Rafting. Although we’d not booked for canyoning (we had two children aged nearly 7) we were taken to join a Dutch group.
The experience for adults and our teens was amazing and the scenery stunning. Our little ones however (11 to 6) found swimmming in the river too cold (7 deg C) Hamil organised a boat transfer for them for the last 100mtrs or so and then took the trouble to buy them a chocolate bar to help warm the up ❤️. Rafting was also great fun and although it looked challenging we found it safe and exhilarating. Its a long day and we all tucked into a late fish / chicken lunch after. We stayed at Ali Bey resort in Manavgat and If staying in this part of Turkey it’s well worth the 1.5hr transfer. Things to bare in mind....you need trainer or jelly shoes for canyoning (we had to buy them there for 5 E). Unless your young children are very hardy and confident in cold water the canyon swim is a challenge.

Excellent entertainment for whole family, Rafting on Koprulu River is a must have activity for whole family. Before we had some concerns for safety of small children but is perfectly suitable and safe for 7 years ols and children loves it. Guide will adjust level of attraction to the crew on board if there are small children he will take light course to avoid serious obstacles. You will get wet though.
There are breaks provided and the meal half way through.
Views on surrounding mountains are spectacular and water is Cristal clear.

Rafting and Natural Beauties, The Canyon is located at the north part of Manavgat-Serik Area through the Taurus Mountainous Region. The river rises from Isparta and ends up in Antalya seaside. It is especially suitable for rafting with 25km length of it. You can also go for a visit and make a stopover a restaurant at the riverside. The restaurants generally offers fish (trout) and gozleme (Turkish crep). you can also ask for other types of grills and snacks such as french fries and salads. If you like to take photographs, the scenic view of the canyon will be very helpful. Especially summer times, the canyon offers you nice time due to cooler atmosphere. However, you can also make a visit during the fall and winter seasons.

Rafting Day Trip, The highlife of our holiday. Also very cheap for what you get. It take about an hour to reach as they collect guest from other hotels. We used Koprulu Canyon Rafting and were very happy with the rafting. Also jumped into the ice cold water which in it self was an experience as well as the jump of point. The rapids are level 2 or 3. I took my 11 year old son and it was the first time for both of us, an amazing experience, something not to be missed if you are in Antalya. The scenery is amazing. You will water shoes, towel, change of clothing. If you don’t have the water she’s then you need to buy from them for €1 which are basic quality. Worth buying some decent one from the local shop of before you travel to Antalya. The rafting company will provide you with wet suites, helmet, life jacket. Photos and DVD are extra budget about €9 for both. But worth having a they do take decent photos and movie at strategic locations. Would definitely do it again on my next Antalya vacation.
A fantastic day out with the most spectacular scenery, great atmosphere, singing and splashing fun all the way.
Who would have believed Turkey had even more to offer. The scenery along this river is stunning. This trip is full of fun and excitement, we chose to kayak and got regularly attacked by the rafters along the river attempting to fill our kayak with water.......all in great spirit. The leaders running the day are friendly, experienced and full of fun. Lunch is chicken, rice salad and beer or water coke etc.
Wear boating shoes or buy the plastic shoes on site, take a waterproof camera although a few pics are taken by the team to purchase after, there's also a video. Wear plenty of sunscreen as you have to leave belongings in the minibus and pay for extras at the end. This is a fantastic day out and the rapids are really exciting!

Spent two days here in the gorge staying at Canyon Pension & Guest House. Room was basic and clean, plenty of room with air con and en suite. Booked rafting through Canyon Lodge at TL10 per person! A lot cheaper than other prices quoted and it was an amazing experience. We also got rowed up stream by two guys to see the waterfall, hard work for them on the way up! Got a tour of Koprulu Canyon by a girl who found us looking lost in the mountains which was fantastic.
A great place to unwind

Amazing destination, awsome rafting experince, We had a rafting round here as a family. We chose the Taurus team (blues), and another team (reds) was also running successfully. The route was so exciting and the guys guiding the boats did everything to make the people have fun. Lunch was included, drinks were not expensive. All costed around 10-12 USD per person, being lower for the kids.

Great scenery, We went there with our private car, it is almost a 1.5 hours drive from Side. The old bridge is just fascinating. We also took a boat tour, with Yasin, and went against the flow and saw the source of the water. The power of the water was amazing. The tour took around 1 hour, we had a chance to swim in the water too - it is ice cold. We did not do rafting but people sounded enjoying it too. Highly recommended place!
