Turkey is a walkers’ paradise – especially from March to May and September to November when the temperatures are a bit cooler. In spring, the hills and coast blossom into life with colourful flowers lining the trails while in autumn the trees are heavily laden with fruit – grapes, apples and pomegranates - and the markets full of fresh vegetables. For those hankering after more of a challenge, why not climb Mount Ararat, legendary resting place of Noah’s Ark. This is a great option if you want to go trekking in the summer.
Explore offers a number of walking tours in Turkey, plus the nearby Walking in Northern Cyprus (one of Europe's sunniest spots!) In Turkey itself, try walking in the surreal landscapes of Cappadocia or, alternatively, following the famous Lycian Way along Turkey’s southern coast.
