Walk the famous ancient footpath
This varied trekking holiday follows the highest and most rugged section of Turkey's most famous long distance footpath; the Lycian Way, which stretches from Fethiye to Antalya and covers 500km. The hiking route snakes along dramatic coastline and offers spectacular cliff top views and ancient ruins before reaching the limestone peaks of Mt Olympos (2365m), now known as Mt Tahtali. This ascent is a real highlight, offering superb views from the summit ridge. Varied scenery dotted with ancient ruins makes this walking tour in Southern Turkey a treat for those looking for a challenge.
