News – Jan 2023:

Welcome to the new Trekopedia. We’re just starting to add our trail content, and it’s probably going to take a while. First up is our coverage of Turkey’s fantastic Lycian Way trail. Coming soon will be the Camino de Santiago (Spain / Portugal), the West Highland Way (Scotland), the Coast to Coast Trail (England), the Cotswold Way (England), Great Ocean Walk (Australia), Via Francigena (England, France, Switzerland, and Italy), and more.

Have fun exploring the site. Let us know how we can improve our content and make it more useful for you.

    Lycian Way

    Heralded as one of the top 10 long-distance trails in the world by the UK’s Sunday Times, this 400 km / 250 mi hike along Turkey’s rugged, beautiful Turquoise Coast connects the small city of Fethiye in the west with a village on the outskirts of Antalya in the east. It has jaw-dropping scenery, ancient historical sites, incredibly friendly people, delicious food, and constantly changing terrain.

     

    Typically done over about 27 to 30 days, though with good partial-routes of as little as 5 days, it has lots of elevation changes and will give your legs (and lungs) a good workout with about 23,000 m / 75,000 ft of both ascent and descent.

     

    Known as Likya Yolu in Turkish, this trail can be done in either direction as a through-hike or a series of day hikes.
