Yanartas (Chimera)

Perhaps Kemer Olympos and Yanartas excursion’s most interesting and admirable stop will be Chimera, known as Yanartas in Turkish, meaning “flaming rock”. This name was derived from a mythological definition given to fire-breathing hybrid monstrous creatures with body parts from various animals.

You’ll not meet any monster, though, but you’ll see enduring flames that’s been alive for centuries. The flaming rock, Yanartas hasn’t been extinguished by any natural conditions due to its unending source of gas. And you’ll have a chance of seeing this navigation point of ancient sailors, mythological wonder and beautiful scenery.

Olympos Beach

Being world’s cleanest pebble-covered beach with 4 km length, relaxing and amazing sight of Olympos Beach will ease your mind and soul.

Kemer Olympos and Yanartas Tour continues with a visit to Olympos Beach that gathers amazing features up such as a pine forest along the shore, National Park with a rare flora, and medieval and antique ruins.

Moreover, even Carettas live there and if you’re lucky enough, you can see how the life begins for them!

Mount Yanartas

Mount Yanartas is where Bellerophon killed Chimera, a mystical monster, so that a hero arose and a fiery monster fell down, leaving its flames behind -under the ground; yet can be seen on the lands. It is Yanartas, as we mentioned above, and after learning the whole story, you’ll get charmed more and more.

Thinking of this flaming rock, Yanartas, as the last breath of Chimera makes this unique scenery pretty interesting.

The Lycian City of Olympos

Olympos is a significant place for mythology admirers by hosting a part of Lycian City as well as having myths like Chimera.

In the 3rd century BC, Hephaestus (Vulcan), the god of fire, blacksmithing, metalworking and craftsmen, and husband of beautiful Aphrodite was the main god of Lycian City of Olympos. Hence some special festivals were arranged for him. That striking atmosphere and ruins of magnificent buildings from this Lycian period is still here, standing with its glamour.
