According to the Sunday Times; the Lycian Way is one of the ten most beautiful long distance hikes of the world. It is a coastal walk and mild temperatures mean it can be walked throughout the winter months.
The seashore, village and mountain paths of the Lycian Trail, once linked the ancient cities of the Lycia people.This trail holds the secrets and mysteries of 3000 years of Lycian civilization (2500BC-600AD).
As you walk along the trail, you’ll see startling panoramic views, original cave dwellings, city remains (Lycian, Roman, and Byzantine), and fascinating rock-cut tombs (dating from 5th Century B. C. to the Roman period), and semi-nomadic villages.
The Lycian country is best traveled in the spring and autumn. Ancient roads and mountain paths make the journey easier, although it can be difficult, and in many places the magnificent view is a splendid reward for the challenging climb.
