Lycian Way

Devouring the Lycian Way

The long-distance footpath through southern Turkey has existed since 1999, when Kate Clow finally way marked the whole of a 500 km walk around the coast of the Teke Peninsula, ancient Lycia, from the pleasant harbour town of Fethiye almost to Antalya. Antalya is certainly one of Turkey’s greatest cities on the Mediterranean and it was our arrival and departure point for this exciting holiday.

The breathtaking scenery, great walks, blue sea and magnificent ruins will, of course, remain the backdrop to our memories of this holiday. But Turkey is very much a sum of small parts and so every grand experience is underpinned by smaller memories that make this holiday so special.

The Lycian Way Continues

After the penance of Finike, we’ve been treated to a taste of paradise in Cirali! Wonderful to step outside in the morning to the scent of honeysuckle and walk past green lawns and palm trees and pomegranate bushes.
