Bridging Europe and Asia, Turkey offers a spicy blend of east and west in its vibrant markets, architectural splendour (including in Antalya, pictured) and delicious cuisine. Visitors are drawn to the second-century Roman city of Aspendos, the historic treasures of Istanbul, the ancient Roman baths of Hieropolis, the whirling dervishes of Konya and the grand Ionia's Temple of Diana in Ephesus.
Warnings: While Turkey's security situation is largely stable, Canadians are advised to exercise a high degree of caution because of the ongoing threat of terrorist attacks. Avoid non-essential travel to Van province, where earthquakes continue to wrack the region. And, stay away from the Iraqi border.

And it's no easy task for them—barriers include highways, fences, tough terrain, and bodies of water. In this video by Joe Riis, a National Geographic grantee and regular contributor, see the modern-day obstacles mule deer overcome to make the migratory trek that they likely have been making for generations.
