Breakfasts normally include boiled eggs, cucumber, tomatoes, cheese, honey or jam and yoghurt, olives and bread. Lunches may be taken as picnics or in lokantas (small local restaurants). For dinners, Kas has plenty of excellent restaurants and cafés for you to choose from. Some specialise in locally caught fish dishes, others in various lamb dishes. There are also plenty of snack bars where ‘Pide’ (Turkish Pizza) is served. Most restaurants also offer selections of Meze (mixed starters).

This trip is Activity Level 2 (leisurely/moderate) with 4 days of walking, 1 free day and 1 day of boat tour
Please note that although the walks run on established paths, they can be rocky underfoot with some exposed areas (no guard rails), so you will need to be steady on your feet. The itinerary on this trip remains flexible, to allow you to do as much or as little as you like.
All in all this is a relaxing but active break where there is something to suit all tastes – stunning walks, impressive historical sites, excellent food, long sandy beaches and numerous optional activities including diving and paragliding. The walks last on average 4 hours (not including rest stops) and, to some extent, will be tailored to the abilities and interests of the group as well as the season. Kas is a lively town in the summer; out of season it can be quiet but is never deserted, as the town is not entirely dependent on tourism.
Our base is usually the Phellos Hotel in centre and Arpia Hotel in peninsualla of Kaş. Hotels are a well appointed in the beaches. Hotels are modern, clean and comfortable, with en suite facilities, air conditioning and some with balcony. There is also an outdoor swimming pool (open May to October) and a restaurant/bar where breakfast is served.
