Today’s trek follow the old path, newly marked by a local group in order to create more trails for people who were staying in the Fethiye area for longer. For this section we prefer this route to the official Lycian way, as the official route is narrow and hazardous in places.

Discover the little-explored ruins in the village of Sidyma on your walk today, which include remains from the Roman Imperial age including tombs, sarcophagi, bath, temple and church.

Enjoy a cup of tea at a local house before being transferred from Sidyma to your hotel in Patara.

Turn-by-turn directions

These maps and routes are designed to be used in conjunction with our traditional documentation. We have recently embarked on a conversion initiative to bring the two elements together, and this itinerary will be covered in due course.

In the meantime, using the two elements alongside each other should go a long way to ensure you have a safe, enjoyable and problem free day.
