Tahtali Ski Resort- New Ski Resort of Kemer

SWIM& SKI AT THE SAME TIME OF THE YEAR IN KEMER!

The Tahtali Aerial Cableway will start operating in September 2007, by which time the work on the sports slopes will be complete and the mountain-top and base station ready for use. The ambitious project will be rounded off when the efficient, modern summit restaurant opens in July of 2007. Diversity is an important factor for any successful tourist destination. And the contrasting experience the Mount Tahtali Aerial Cableway provides is a masterpiece!

Having enjoyed sunbathing on sandy beaches in the morning, guests are then able to while away the afternoons amid the pleasantly cool temperatures of a snowy mountain summit. The aerial cableway brings the mountains and sea closer together – the Tahtali cable car provides Europe with a unique combination that is hard to match. With a length of 4,350 meters, the Tahtali Aerial Cableway is the longest cableway in Europe, and the second longest worldwide.

Swiss cable car engineering and safety standards guarantee a safe and enjoyable trip up and away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The Tahtali Aerial Cableway is being built by the Doppelmayr/Garaventa Group, a world leader in the planning and construction of cableways. The Doppelmayr/Garaventa Group sells its products and services in over thirty countries around the world and has constructed more than 13,000 cableways to date.

The Tahtali Aerial Cableway uniquely combines two classic holiday destinations – the sea and the mountains. Mount Tahtali, at 2,365m above sea level, is situated in an attractive and rapidly growing tourist area and provides the region with a new dimension.

Southern Turkey is on the one hand shaped by the sea, its landscapes and culture, and on the other by the outstanding services and activities it has to offer. With more than 300 days of sunshine a year, it is undoubtedly an attractive holiday destination for guests from Europe the whole year round. And of course, Mount Tahtali is a major landmark of this booming region that is impossible to overlook!

Mountain Tahtali lies at the heart of the Antalya tourist region with several hundred-thousand hotel beds conveniently found in close proximity, approximately a third of which are in 5-star hotel establishments. The possibilities and offers open to guests are boundless: swimming, diving, golf, sailing, sunbathing, culture or the extremely popular excursions. Here, Mount Tahtali offers a brand new experience, with a stupendous view over the whole of southern Turkey and, naturally, the sea.

Diversity is an important factor for any successful tourist destination. And the contrasting experience the Mount Tahtali Aerial Cableway provides is a masterpiece! Having enjoyed sunbathing on sandy beaches in the morning, guests are then able to while away the afternoons amid the pleasantly cool temperatures of a snowy mountain summit. The aerial cableway brings the mountains and sea closer together – the Tahtali cable car provides Europe with a unique combination that is hard to match.

Unique experiences await: approach through a nature conservation area, modern base station, ride in a cabin with a capacity of 80, summit station with panorama terrace, 360° view, restaurant, short walks ...
