How to get the best views of Kemer | Olympus Teleferik
Getting high – Olympus Teleferik – All the views
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. Cable car to the top of Mount Tahtali 2365m.
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. Their shuttle bus picked us up direct from our hotel at 9.30 in the morning.
What did it cost?
The cable car round trip was €33 with €7 for the shuttle bus each way. Since we were paying card, we paid on arrival at the cable car ticket booth.
What was the best things about the day?
The views opening up 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.
Andiamo Amigos Tip of the trip
If you’re adventurous then enquire about hiking up and taking the cable car down or vice versa. It’s a brilliant path and part of the Lycian Way.

Our journey up was spectacular. The day was quite still hazy and the coastline was bathed in a soft hazy glow. We found the higher we got the more of the surrounding hills and coastline you could see. 15 mins flew by all too quickly and we were at the top you do need a cardigans or sweater as there was a fierce wind and it was a bit chillier than the 36 degrees we had enjoyed at the base. Don’t let that put you off.
What is there to do at the summit apart from the seeing the best views of Kemer and the coast?
– Grab a coffee (Starbucks)
– 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.
