Wonder Türkiye Vertical Water International Canyoning Meeting 2024

Turchia 2024                               


The geographical area of Saklikent, in Mediterranean Turkey, will host the second international canyoning meeting, scheduled from 6 to 13 April 2024.

“Wonder Türkiye” is organized by the Vertical Water team, an amateur sports association, in collaboration with Istanbul Canyoning Team (ICT) and includes eight days of Canyoning, but not only!

Like last year, the spirit of the gathering remains Wild, so don’t expect large hotels or luxury services, but a characteristic rural environment that will take you on a real journey through time, rediscovering distant but decidedly folkloristic habits and customs.

This area is surrounded by wonderful mountains, in which beautiful canyons chiseled in limestone and granite outcrops are hidden, and offers the possibility of discovering fantastic landscape views even to those who do not practice canyoning or simply want to diversify their outdoor activities.

So……see you in Türkiye!









The meeting will take place from Saturday 6 April to Saturday 13 April 2024 in the area of Saklıkent National Park (in Turkish Saklıkent Millî Parkı</ span>) in the Mediterranean Sea region of Turkey within the borders of Seydikemer District of Muğla Province

The Park is also known as Saklıkent Canyon as it arises from the canyon formed by the Karacay stream, which determines the border between the provinces of Antalya and Muğla until it flows into the Eşen river.

The focus of the gathering is at the The XanyoN Camping, where you can park campers and vans or place tents and where the secretariat will be and where the scheduled evening collateral activities will take place.
Chi preferisce un alloggio meno wild potrà rivolgersi agli hotel che troverete nella sezione apposita.
