About me

I am an active member of the adventure travel community since 1988 and the only active member of ATTA (Adventure Travel Trade Association) from Turkey. I am hosting travelers of small groups and families in Turkey and in the Dodecanese Islands of Greece for hiking, sailing, culinary, sea-kayaking, botanizing, cultural, and historical experiences. I've represented many tour operators in Turkey from different parts of the world, but mostly from the USA.

I design our itineraries with the principles of Slow/Responsible Travel.

I am a wildflower enthusiast and share about 1150 wildflower images categorized in 60 plant families at my site called www.floraofturkey.com

I started a travel blog at www.hikeandsail.com/blog, where you can find a lot of insight into what I do and why.

I declared a Climate Emergency Plan - www.hikeandsail.com/blog/2020/08/28/climate-emergency-plan/ and started to work with ATTA/South Pole to go Carbon Neutral. Please you do the same.

I am a founder of the World Heritage Guides Unesco Club.
