The Basics

Köprülü Canyon (also written Koprulu Canyon, or Köprülü Kanyon in Turkish) is renowned as one of the best—and most picturesque—destinations for white-water rafting in Turkey. Full-day rafting tours typically depart from Antalya, Kemer, or Belek and often include a chance to swim in the river, climb through the canyon, or enjoy lunch at one of the many waterfront fish restaurants. Thrill-seekers can also enjoy activities including canyoning, quad-bike excursions, or buggy safaris along the Koprucay River, stopping to swim or hike around the riverside.

Best rafting experience ever
By far one of the best experiences we had as a group of 4 people, you can pay extra to have the raft to yourself and get video footage. Guide was absolutely brilliant. Have already got this planned to do next year again with the kids

Koprulu Canyon Water Rafting Adventure with Lunch from Antalya
Overall, a great experience. Express rafting (the company we rafted with) were great and it was organized and super fun. The scenery is beautiful and it was nice to see the Turkish countryside. The only problem I had was as follows: On the way home, the driver got a flat tire and I was the only one left to get dropped off. He got out of the car and basically did not say anything to me. I told him I will get a taxi and he did not apologize or help at all. I really did not appreciate that.

Whitewater Rafting at Koprulu Canyon Antalya
My partner was a bit nervous as he cant swim very well and the guides were brilliant and ended up having a 2 person canoe at extra cost and it was amazing. The food and guides were great. The scenery was just stunning and to go on a zip wire at extra cost which was worth it. Cant recommend highly enough, prices for the video was good too.

Koprulu Canyon Water Rafting Adventure with Lunch from Antalya
Excellent adventure! The instructors were true professionals and ensured everybody had maximum fun and remained safe at all times. A disperate and unfamiliar crew rapidly became a team and great friends under their skilled leadership. Don't have doubts, just do it!

Great fun and enjoyment. The cool waters cool you down on a hot day. You can leave your wallet and phone in the bus to avoid water damage. You pay for snacks and drinks on the raft trip on tab with the raft guide.

Eagle Canyon Jeep Safari and White Water Rafting (from Belek, Antalya, Side)
We went on this tour and it was the best experience I’ve had! They give you an optional canyoning experience as well for €10 per person and it is way worth it as it was a great time! Staff are extremely friendly and speak English well. They also give you an option to buy the DVDs and photos after for €25 which is a bargain because it’s a well put together DVD! The Jeep Safari Tour is quite painful on your bum but you get a great view at the top of the cliff!

Excellent Trip except mask issue

Family Rafting Trip at Köprülü Canyon from Antalya
Amazing & exciting rafting experience. Great place and nice team. Very enjoyable. The only serious issue was Hotel pick & drop Van. Many tourists including Van driver were not wearing masks on regular basis. People were even coughing and sneezing without masks in small congested Van. This is criminal as our family with masks was afraid all the time. Masks must be strictly worn in small congested place. Driver was stopped by police once for mask.. He followed for a while and then removed. He was even coughing as well. He was not even enforcing on careless tourists to wear masks. Not going to use pick & drop feature again.

Koprulu Canyon Whitewater Rafting with Lunch From Belek
We booked this via Viator rather than the hotel, as the hotel was charging twice the price, and were a bit nervous about this, as booking via the hotel felt 'safer'. But we needn't have worried. We got immediate confirmation of the trip, but did not get the pickup time until around 8pm the evening before - I get the impression that this is normal, due to last-minute bookings, and was nothing to worry about. The minibus arrived 45 minutes late, due to guests at the previous pickup hotels showing up late - not Viator's fault. I hadn't realised how big an operation the Koprulu Canyon rafting is - there are literally 40 outfits on the river, and they are all quite big. We were taken to Express Rafting, and there must have been 200 people there - it seemed like organised chaos, but all worked very well, and the briefing, lifejacket and helmet dispensing went very quickly. Then we were taken a bit further up the river, and the adventure started! First with photos knee-deep in the icy water (it really is cold, about 5C!), then a plunge neck-deep in a long 'snake' of fellow-rafters. The rafting itself was great - very exciting but not terrifying, and though we had some hairy moments, only one person fell in, and was rescued very quickly. We stopped after about 1.5 hours for drinks and a snack (which you buy on credit as you have no money with you!), and had the opportunity to go on a zipwire! About another 30 minutes of rafting brought us back to our start point and a lovely grilled kebab and salad lunch. Then we got about another 30 minutes of rafting and a chance of swimming (which none of us took!), before the end point, where our minibuses were waiting, with our bags and clothes; there were changing facilities and the chance to buy drinks and snacks, and we all watched the video which was a very well-edited souvenir of the trip, and not too expensive to buy (you get it on a USB stick). All in all, it was fantastic value for money, the guides made it great fun, with rivalry between the rafts and lots of splashing, and the rapids were great. We've been white-water rafting in Dominican Republic and Peru, and this was the best of all of them.

GOOD RAFTING, BAD

Family Rafting Trip at Köprülü Canyon from Antalya
The rafting itself is very good. Beautiful view and good vibe. Free lunch includes salads, macaroni, some bbq chicken, rice and bread which is ok to me. However, the downside is that they would sell lots of things to you at high prices... for that i also understand after all the tour is cheap. But the quality the things they sell was really lousy. I bought a pair of beach shoes from them at 10 euro because the sandals i was wearing is not ok to raft according to the tour guide. But after i used them for only less than 10 mins before i even touched water...one of the shoe sole just completely fell off from the shoe and i could not use them anymore. And what's worse is that they refused to refund me any amount of money. So my advice for you if you choose this tour is to wear your own proper outdoor shoes and avoid heels, slippers or sandals. bring your own waterproofed phone case.
