APRIL 29 - MAY 7 (BANK HOL) LYCIAN WAY HIGHLIGHTS & THE TURQUOISE COAST (TURKEY)
Backabush is going to Turkey to trek the highlights of the Lycian Way!
Cost £589 - 8 Nights - Group Size 16 - Hotel & Guesthouse Accommodation
The Lycian way is a long distance trail that spans over 300 miles along Turkey's stunning Turquoise Coast. Our plan is to do the best day hikes on the western half of the trail, along spectacular coastline, between charming towns and villages. We will have the chance to visit ancient Greek and Roman ruins, wild swim in secluded coves and enjoy home cooked food at our local guesthouses and hotels.
We plan to do six days of hiking, mostly along the famous Lycian way but also detouring to take in sights such as the idyllic Oludeniz beach and rock cut tombs of Amyntas. We will finish our trek in the beach town of Kas, a centre for adventure tourism where we will have a free day to rest & recover or join one of popular canyoning trips that Kas has become well known for.
On this trip we will be staying in six different places as we journey along the Lycian Way. Accommodation will be a combination of small hotels and guesthouses, for one or two nights each. We will be supported on our trek by a local trip leader who will provide a luggage transfer between accommodations so we can hike each day with just a light daypack.
This trip is best suited to fit and experienced hikers, our longest day of hiking will be approximately 11 miles with over 1000m of ascent on rough trails. There will also be some shorter days. The hikes on this trip are self guided and detailed route descriptions will be included.
