    Camping in the shade of the Taurus Moutains

    The great beauty of Turkey is captured in the breathtaking, green Taurus Mountains, the turquoise Mediterranean Sea and the golden sandy beaches of Mersin. The great heritage of Byzantine, Roman and Cilicia are imprinted on the coasts of Mersin. There are plenty of beautiful places for you to camp at in Mersin. To reach your destination, book a flight to Adana and then rent a car.
