    Southern Turkey

    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.
