Walking the Lycian Way

A lovely walk along the southern Turkish coast part by the sea and part inland. Walking was mostly easy. We stayed in some local peoples homes which was interesting. On the rest day we hired a boat which took us to some lovely bays were we could swim. Local food was very enjoyable.

Walking the Lycian Way

A great trip and a great group. The scenery was beautiful and lots of plants were I full bloom. Nice mix of coast and mountain. Sociable & entertaining guides.

WALKING THE LYCIAN WAY

A very well-designed and executed trip,  through beautiful and varied landscapes in good company. This was my fifth trip to Turkey and third time on the Lycian Way - it showed me a side of Turkey I had not seen before in areas that would have been hard to explore alone.

WALKING THE LYCIAN WAY

A rewarding week of walking and relaxing away from the crowds. Varied terrain, great weather, good company and food along with satisfactory accommodation. A couple of lengthy and challenging days  (particularly on the optional Olympos ascent) to be aware of - with uneven terrain and prolonged uphill/downhill stints. Definitely at the top end of the moderate grade. Optional boat trip at Cirali on rest day recommended. Stunning coastal walk to the lighthouse on the last day. Ali is an enthusiastic guide who was spot on with his organisation and pacing.

WALKING THE LYCIAN WAY

There is much to like in the daily walks unfortunately, much of the rest of the experience was below expectations.

THE ULTIMATE LYCIAN WAY

I expected more of a coastal walk which was not a disappointment and walking through pine clad forest meant we were shielded from the sun. The unexpected aspects of the trek made it more interesting. Obviously the trip depends on the other group members which in this case was the makings of the trip. I did expect the accommodation to be not quite as basic – there was no water or only scorching hot water at times.  The breakfasts were a bit monotonous but the food was generally good. In spite of this I found the holiday enjoyable and rewarding, each day being quite challenging in the heat and humidity. The well-marked paths are full of scenic moments and there are several opportunities to swim in the sea. I found the camping and the climb of mount Olympus very interesting and different from what I expected. It is a quite a rush to pack up and get ready each day but that is what trekking is all about, I guess.

THE ULTIMATE LYCIAN WAY

I and many people in my group - so It was not an uncommon expectation - had thought this holiday would be more coastal and give view most days of the coastline, but it did not until the last day of walking. (Although we could see the coast through the haze from the top of Olympus.)
