Ölüdeniz (Fethiye) - Antalya, 500 km.
Kate Clow did us a great favor by compiling this first long distance trail in Turkey. The trail is made up of local paths, along many old Lycian ruins and through small rural villages. The trail is marked, and the marking is maintained. The impact of the trail on the local economy is of some importance, since hikers "shop" and sleep in the villages, and local guides get the opportunity to help groups.
It is rather exceptional to be able to make self-guided tours in a country that does not have a hiking tradition.
The trail follows the coast. Sometimes it turns inland, climbing into mountain ranges up to 1700 m. Best time is spring: april - may. Winter is a second option. Kate Clow's guidebook is indispensible, in combination with maps and GPS. The Lycian Way is not a stroll: the trail can be trying due to the karst underground. If you are not trained, you'd better contact an Tour Operator who will help you to find the best and easiest parts. If you're young and strong, you can go camping and finish the way in about three weeks. Wear sturdy shoes.
