Self guided Lycian Way Trekking Tour
A coastal walk through history – Turkey’s first long-distance route with Overland Travel Self Guided Trekking Tour
The Lycian Way is a 540 km, 29-day way-marked footpath around the coast of Lycia in southern Turkey, from Fethiye to Antalya. The trail consists mainly of Roman roads, old footpaths and mule trails, often hard and stony underfoot, not suitable for mountain bikes. Lying between the coast and mountains, it often has steep gradients. It was researched, designed and waymarked by Kate Clow, a British/Turkish amateur historian, in 1999. Turkey’s first long-distance walking route, it was made in order to identify and protect some of Turkey’s old roads. The start point, at Ölüdeniz and the end point is now at Geyikbayırı, Antalya.
