Discover more about the beautiful region of South West Turkey.

Fethiye to the West of the trail is known as the Turquoise Coast, with its majestic mountains, the numerous sandy beaches and ancient sites. The abundance of bays and islands many of which are hidden away on the rugged coast line creates an excellent basis for exploring this area on land and by sea.

Plenty of options exist for Trekking both on the Lycian Way and numerous other local trails.

Our accommodation will be mainly in hotels, pensions, village houses and camp sites.

Optional activities can be organised for those days when we want to rest our legs from trekking.

There is so much to see and do in this area

The Lycian Way is a long-distance footpath in Turkey around part of the coast of ancient Lycia taking its name from the ancient civilisation which once ruled the area and is approximately 510 km long following an historic trade route, mainly along coastal paths heading inland at times through traditional mountain villages and farming communities between Fethiye and Antalya.

The route is mainly over footpaths and mule trails; it is mostly over limestone and often hard and stony underfoot. The route is graded medium, it is not level walking and a reasonable level of fitness is required
