The Lycian Way West

Enjoy panoramic views across the turquoise coast, and discover ruins from Greek and Roman civilisations on this walk along the west section of the Lycian Way.

This tour combines a variety of coastal walks with a couple of inland sections giving fantastic views of the Toros mountain range. 

Visit the extensive ruins of Patara, ancient Phellos and the abandoned ghost village of Kayakoy.  And at the end of the day put your feet up and enjoy some delicious Turkish meze or a refreshing black tea whilst taking in views of the deep blue sea.
