A stunning point to point trek through Turkey's pinewood forest, with a lovely finish along the cliffs looking out along the Turquoise coast. In our group we had a mixed range of abilities and fitness but the pace was set well by the tour guide so that it was enjoyable for everyone with regular regrouping.

After a good experience on our trip to Bosnia last year, we decided that this year we wanted to do a point to point walk and chose this holiday in Turkey. The walks cover a variety of terrains from wide forest paths to steep climbs and traversing the snow covered parts of Mount Tahtali. Parts of the trail are pretty tough, especially in the heat we had, but the views and scenery are well worth all the effort. The accommodation was good and always clean and the owners/staff were very friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed the food as well.

Trekking in Turkey

5
This was our first visit to Turkey and our first experience of a trekking holiday. We had a fantastic time, although at the moment my feet may disagree with me. We covered about 100 km and we found it challenging even though we do a fair amount of walking at home. Travelling in mid May the thing we found toughest was the heat (30c +) which was quite energy sapping. The free day was much appreciated, not just for the rest to our feet, but the opportunity to do some washing. We went sea kayaking to explore the coast, a trip organised by our guide Ali.

What a fantastic week!

I was originally planning to walk the Inca Trail to Macchu Picchu this month, but didn't book my trip early enough to get my golden pass unfortunately. Having set myself up for a challenging holiday this year, I decided to delay my trip to Peru and book something else for this year instead. A walking trip along the Lycian Way ended up being my replacement plan and my... how glad I am for it. This trip has been the best one I have done so far: The trail walks were amazing, tough all right, but also beautiful, allowing me to experience the multitude of terrains and sceneries the south coast of Turkey has to offer. The extra challenge of climbing up Mount Olympos on the second day was the cherry on top of the cake, and being able to do this with a fantastic team of like-minded people and excellent leaders made it extra special to me. The rest day in Cirali was very welcome after three days of walking, and gave us an opportunity to rest our sore feet. Part of our group decided to try sea kayaking, and not being one much for relaxing on the beach, I decided to join them, which was great fun. I have come back from my trip having fallen in love with Turkey, and having made new friends along the way. If you're in for a bit of an adventure, I'd definitely recommend this trip.

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.
