Walking The Lycian Way And Gulet Cruise In Turkey

We walk through the ancient province of Lycia, following one of Turkey's most spectacular coastal trails, the Lycian Way. On our 6-day trek we hike through the foothills of the Taurus Mountains from Kayakoy to Patara, in the hinterland above Kas, and along the coast to the ruins at Aperlae. On our way we experience village life, relax on golden beaches and discover ancient sites.
In week two we cruise along the beautiful Turquoise Coast on a traditional wooden gulet. Departing from Fethiye harbour we explore small bays and islands, discover ancient relics, and swim and snorkel in the warm clear waters that give the coastline its name. We visit the hillside village of Kalkan, the submerged ancient city of Kekova and revisit Kas. There are also opportunities to sea kayak, walk Saklikent Gorge and visit historical sites such as Patara (birthplace of Saint Nicholas).
