Koprulu Canyon National Park

Köprülü Canyon National Park is located 85 kilometers northeast of Antalya, just east of the Köprüçay River. This natural area with its 14 km long canyon and 100 meter high canyon walls was designated a National Park in 1973.

Originating high in the Toros mountain range and passing through a beautiful canyon, Köprüçay pours into the Mediterranean south of Serik. Fed by underground waters, this river creates one of Turkey's most beautiful natural recreation areas.
