A steep gorge filled with blue streams and waterfalls, Sapadere Canyon, Sapadere Kanyonu, or Sapadere Kanyon is a refuge in nature in the Turkish Riviera. It is about 400 meters high and 360 meters long, having been formed by erosion caused by water and ice ages ago. Fresh air blows through the canyon, which is also home to animals including butterflies and birds as well as the sounds of rushing water. Facilities that were once unknown to those outside of the area have just been constructed to welcome travelers from all around Turkey and the globe.

A natural hardwood trail that winds through the park occasionally leads to pools, which are especially welcome in the summer heat. You are surrounded by picturesque high peaks and the Torsos mountains as you move through. The most impressive waterfall in the canyon is near the end of the trail, and there is a location there where you can swim in the crystal-clear water. A trip to the adjacent Sapadere Village is also recommended.
