Enjoy an alternative way to explore Patara when you book a horseback riding tour of the national park. Pick between morning and afternoon tour times, and set off directly from your Kalkan accommodation. Head first to the stables, where you’ll meet your horse and will be briefed on basic safety techniques. Then, begin your ride through the region’s lovely scenery. Pass through pine forests and sand dunes, and head to Patara Beach. Take a swimming break, if you wish, before beginning your return ride back to the stables.
