Lycian Way trekking route is the longest footpath of Turkey. It’s 509 km long and the 4th longest trekking route of Europe. The Lycian Way has been rated by the Sunday Times as one of the 10 best long walks in the World.
The Lycians were one of the earliest people of the ancient world, whose political sophistication, culture and commercial success were the envy of many larger and well known civilizations.
When you’re walking on the Lycian Way, you’re always together with the amazing nature of the Mediterranean climate and thousands years of history which is still full of mysteries and waiting to be explored. While trekking on Lycian way you’ll need your trekking boots and raincoat, you’ll also need your swimsuits.
