Naim and Nurten Sur live in Ovacik, near the Mediterranean coastal town of Fethiye. It must come as no surprise that this village is perched on the foothills of Babadag, a mountain, which also just happens to be the starting point of the Lycian Way. As a family they enjoy nothing better than walking, mountaineering and enjoying Turkey’s wonderful natural environment.

They are both founders and active members of the Ye┼čilpatika (Green Path) Nature Activities Group in Fethiye (www.yesilpatika.com), of which Naim is a Leader.

Experience:
Born in 1954, Naim has always loved being outdoors and given the chance he prefers to be at the top of a mountain! As a result he has climbed Agri Mountain (Mount Ararat), which is 5.165 metres above sea level. He has also climbed most of Turkey’s higher mountains (more than 2.500 metres) and some of them on more than one occasion.

He was instrumental in founding the Voluntary Search & Rescue Teams and Mountaineering Clubs, for which he has subsequently worked as an instructor and team leader. He has participated as a search & rescue team leader for several mountain accidents, avalanches and lost person operations. Immediately after the devastating human tragedy of the 1999 Marmara earthquake, Naim was actively involved in the search & rescue operations as a team leader, together with his wife. He has also been a part of the search & rescue team organised by the Turkish Mountaineering Federation.

Currently, he is a voluntary climbing instructor for the Turkish Mountaineering Federation and works as a freelance trekking and mountain guide, specializing in the eastern Black Sea region, Mount Ararat, Anti-Taurus Mountains (Aladaglar in Turkish) and other wild regions of Turkey.
