Lycian Path

Mediterranean Coastal Walk.

The Lycian Path is one of the most stunning long-distance walking trails worldwide. A coastal hike where you can enjoy both the sea and the mountains simulaneously. Daily tours run along trails high above the sea, which offer phenomenal views onto the coastline and onto the peaks of the Taurus Mountains of up to 3000 metres in altitude. In the hinterland you come across typical cultural landscapes, your path lined with aromatic pine forests, olive groves and mediterranean macchia. You walk through little original villages and get to enjoy Turkish hospitality. Today’s long-distance walking trail is the old trading route dating back to ancient times. This is shown still today by the ample cultural heritage you will encounter in the shape of rock tombs and antique city ruins. Look forward to a hiking week along the mediterranean coast with glorious vegetation and gorgeous views.

Itinerary

Arrival in Antalya and transfer to the picturesque bay of Adrasan, where you will spend the next two nights. We recommend you seize the day and go for a leisurely walk or for a swim in the sea.

One of the most stunning hiking segment of the Lycian Path awaits you today, immediately on your first hiking day. Enjoy magnificent views from the top of the Gelidonya Lighthouse onto the Chelidonia Islands. The route leads you - with a phenomenal view onto the blue glittering sea - through pine forests back to Adrasan.

After a short walk you reach the access point to the Lycian Path. Walk along the old trading route, through pine and arbutus forests all the way to the col at 700 metres in altitude. After that the path ascends on the other side and leads through a dense laurel forest down to Olympos. We highly recommend a stroll through the ruins of Olympos.

Initially you walk along the lovely coast and through dense pinewoods towards the idyllic bay Maden (stop for a swim) with a view onto the snow-capped Tahtali Dagi. After that you continue along quiet paths into the hinterland and through fragrant pine forests to Ulupinar, the finish of today’s hike. Transfer to Beycik.

In the shadow of Mount Olympus you ascend to the highest point of this hiking week, the Tahtali pass on 1850 metres in altitude. A remote path snakes all the way up to the pass of Tahtali, where giant cedar trees thrive. On your trail you can enjoy fascinating views onto the valley and the sea. The hiking tour ends in the mountain village Yayl Kuzdere, then a short transfer to Ovacik.

In the hinterland you walk past plantations, along gurgling streams and through idyllic mountain villages.  This tour does not take you along the official Lycian Path, it is however, due to the enchanting mountain villages you come across along the way, a must. Throughout you will be accompanied along the way by glorious long-distance views onto the peaks of the Taurus Mountains.

For the finale of your week of hiking, once again an unforgettable route awaits. First you pass the Göynük Alp and farms, until the path leads you into the Göynük ravine. Once you have crossed the river, you start a forest walk via an old trading trail, which leads you over the pass and down to the end of the ravine. Trip to Antalya, enjoy the busy goings-on in this holiday metropolis, located on the mediterranean coast.

Tour character

For tours with a walking time between 4.5 and 6 hours, surefootedness and a good basic fitness level are required. You walk on walking paths, often on rocky and stoney ground, so a good pair of walking shoes is essential.

Türkei abseits der Hotelburgen
Landschaftlich sehr reizvoll. Die Tagesetappen ideal geplant. Der Transfer hat überall bestens geklappt. Die Verpflegung war ausreichend und sehr gut.

Tolle Eindrücke mit Bergen und Meer
Der Lykische Weg ist, zumindest in diesem Frühjahr, sehr wenig belaufen. Es ist einfach super schön, auf der einen Seite das Meer zu haben, auf der anderen schneebedeckte Berge. Unsere Favorit war der Abstieg nach Olympos und dann auf Tahtali Dagi. Gute Auswahl an komfortablen Hotels mit sehr freundlichen Wirten, gute Streckenführung.

Anspruchsvolle Wanderung in herrlicher Landschaft
Sehr gut organisierte Reise. Überwiegend sehr gute Hotels mit sehr freundlichen Gastgebern. Sehr schöne, aber recht anspruchsvolle Wanderung, deren Anforderungen (zumindest in dieser Jahreszeit mit Schnee in den Bergen und viel Wasser in den Flüssen) in der Beschreibung im Prospekt nicht deutlich genug zum Ausdruck kommt.

Sehr geehrter Herr Glanzner, vielen Dank für Ihr Feedback! Wir freuen uns sehr, dass Ihnen unsere Wanderreise am Lykischen Weg so gut gefallen hat! Gerne werden wir die Ausschreibung des Schwierigkeitsgrad noch einmal prüfen. Jedoch war Ihr Reisetermin schon sehr früh. Da erhöht sich mit Schmelzwasser und stellenweise Schnee natürlich auch der Schwierigkeitsgrad. Wir bitten um Ihr Verständnis.
