LYCIAN WAY

Lycian Way (Turkish: Likya Yolu, [1]) is a 509-km, waymarked hiking trail in southwestern Turkey, connecting Fethiye in the west with southwest of Antalya (the village of Hisarçandır up on the mountains, to be more precisely) in the east along the Lycian coast.

Lycian Way is great, if sometimes a bit tiring, to get a sense of true Mediterranean Turkey, away from crowded beaches, fancy resorts, and posh palm trees.

Both Fethiye and Antalya are well-connected to most cities in the country by inter-city buses. The nearest international airports are located at Dalaman for the western trailhead and at Antalya for eastern end.

It’s fairly easy to get to western trailhead by minibuses (dolmuş, take those heading for Ölüdeniz, and get off just south of Ovacık/Hisarönü roundabout, at the large sign of ‘Montana Resort Hotel’) or even on foot from downtown Fethiye.
