The Lycian Way East

Explore Lycian ruins, rugged coastline and a more authentic side of Turkey on this walk along the eastern section of the Lycian Way.

Walking along golden beaches, or on rugged cliff top paths overlooking the turquoise coast, you will discover ancient ruins, sleepy villages and spectacular viewpoints across the coast. 

Combined with warm welcomes from your hosts and swimming stops in the warm waters of the Mediterranean, this is a Turkish adventure you are sure to remember!
