Think white-water rafting, canoeing, horse-riding, scuba diving, windsurfing, kite-surfing, caving, skiing, mountain biking, hiking, paragliding, hot-air ballooning... All thanks to Turkey's superb and great variety of landscapes of awe-inspiring peaks, gushing clear rapids and miles and miles of unspoilt coastline...

Track the professionals...Those who can vie with the best, or at least enjoy tracking the professionals, should take note of the 1300-km long 49th Presidential Cycling Tour of Turkey (April/May), the 2013 Alanya ETU Triathlon European Championships (June) and the 2013 Mediterranean Games in Mersin on the eastern Mediterranean coast (June/July). Marathons are criss-crossing the country this year - look out for the RunFire Cappadocia Ultra Marathon (July) and the Anatolian Mountain marathon (July).

Director of London's Turkish Culture and Tourism Office, Tolga Tuyluoglu, says: "We are very excited to have the opportunity to showcase adventure travel and sports in Turkey at this year's Destinations London. Adventure travel will be a big theme for us for 2013 given its amazing variety all across Turkey, with visitors getting to enjoy a different and exciting facet of holidaying there."

The partners at this year's Destinations London are Turkish Airlines and Antalya Promotion and Tourism Development Agency.
