Just down the coast from Kemer is this lovely coastal village of Olimpos and the ancient site of Olimpos Antik Kenti from Roman and Lycian times. We got there by hiring a car from Europcar in Kemer for the day at a cost of £30 for 24 hrs, total bargain.
How to get the best views of Kemer | Olympus Teleferik
We had heard about the cable car that went to the top of Mount Olympus and wanted to have a go. Its not actually Mount Olympus but Mount Tahtali but hey I’m with the locals on this one and they can call it what they want. You really do get the best views of Kemer and the coastline from here.
First, how did we get there?
We booked the trip from the Sea to Sky kiosk in the centre of Kemer next to the Marina. There were different options of trip from half day/full day and a night time trip. Their shuttle bus picked us up direct from our hotel at 9.30 in the morning which was perfect.
What was the best things about the day?
The views opening up behind us of the coastline as the cable car rose to the top of the mountain.
And the worst thing?
There wasn’t that much to do at the top but it was still worth it.
What is there to do at the summit apart from the seeing the best views of Kemer
– Get something to eat (standard basic food)
– Buy a fridge magnet from the gift shop (typical tourist gifts)
– Take the stairs or lift up the 3 flights to the roof of the main station where the views even more spectacular
– Get your photograph taken by one of the many photographers floating around
– Wander around the top (not very far as its fenced off)
– Enjoy an ice-cream outdoors
– Watch the paragliders take off from the summit and glide to the shore below.
If we came back we would definitely walk up to the top. It looks like a fantastic walk. Then get the cable car back down or even paraglide back down that would make it a proper adventure.

Our summer 2020 holiday we found ourselves exploring Kemer, Turkey as travelling options were limited. It was was my first visit to Turkey as Chris has been to before but not to this area. I’d only ever transited through Istanbul airport so that doesn’t count.
