The Lycian Way (Likya Yolu) is Turkey’s first long-distance hiking trail, a 500-kilometer (311-mile) footpathfrom Fethiye to Antalya (map), the impressive achievement of Kate Clow, a Briton resident in Turkey, and her crew of dedicated trailblazers.
There are few lodging and dining services along the route. For most of it you must carry your own shelter, food and other supplies, which makes it ideal for those who like to rough it.
For more info, visit the Culture Routes in Turkeywebsite, and buy Kate’s guidebook to the trail on the Trekking in Turkey website. Her other great project, by the way, is the St Paul Trail, which has its own guidebook as well.
