/ Olympos Kadir's April 2013
Anyone made this trip at this time and can give advice please.
Have tried bus timetable but it says last bus is 19:30 hrs?
Don't know about bus's i'm afraid, but when I went I used Kadir's transport. If there's a few of you it should be fairly reasonable.
it looks like you are missing the last bus. Kadirs' or all other camps would organize airport transfer. Do ask them if there are other customers to share the cost.
Then you should be able to get a dolmus (small bus / big minibus) from the bus station to the Olympos turning (about 6 lire). These leave every 20-30 minutes - it seems to depend on demand and the mood of the driver - heading for Finike or Kumluca. I've seen a local dolmus to Olympos waiting at the junction but I haven't used this - I'm always heading for Finike, further along the coast. I don't know how late they run.
Kadir's should be able to advise or lay on a local taxi to meet you on the main road. It's about 10km from the main road to Olympos and downhill all the way if you fancy walking ...
I'll be out there middle to end of February and can check all this for you.
