Lycian Ruins

A score of major Lycian sites remain today. Here are some examples that can be visited independently or on tour, so for a very enjoyable day in beautiful nature.The Lycian way is a 509 km way marked trail around the coast of Lycia in southern Turkey, Fethiye to Antalya. That was researched, designed and implemented by Kate Clow with Terry Richardson. The Lycian Way is a coastal walk and mild temperatures mean that you can walk over the winter months.

The route is rated medium to hard level is not walking, but has many ascents and descents as it approaches and moves away from the sea. It is easier to start near Fethiye and gets harder as you go. We recommend walking the route in spring or autumn, February to May or September to November, summer in Lycia is hot, although he could walk short distances in the shade. The route is mostly on trails and bridle paths, is mostly limestone and often hard underfoot and stony.

In the first part of the route, and in Patara, Kalkan, Kas, Myra, Finike, Adrasan, Olympos, Cirali and Tekirova, you can stay in pensions or small hotels. Other nights, can stay in a village house, or off the field. There are plenty of places to camp near water mentioned in the book, you have to ask permission to camp.
