Day one

Our group meets at the international terminal at Antalya airport, get on a bus and go to the starting point of our route – Camyuva village. On the first day, a little tired after a long journey, we will walk quite a bit and stop near the ancient Greek ruins in the city of Phaselis. After resting and swimming in the sea, we will go and take a look at the Lycian heritage.

Day two
This day could be understood as an exciting marathon through beaches, coves and bays! The first will be the huge Tekirova beach, after which, moving along the steep coast, we will pass many wild bays, in one of which we will camp.
Day three
The trek will begin with a visit to the incomparable Karaburun Bay and end at the legendary Cirali Beach, where we will camp under the cedars. In the evening, we will have an incredible barbecue at the Chimaera Fire – this is a place where flames burst right from under the scorched earth, according to the legend, an ancient monster is buried here – Chimaera, defeated by Bellerophon and imprisoned alive under the rocks.
Day four
Morning swim at Cirali beach – and back on the road. We will take a look at the ruins of the ancient city of Olympos and continue walking towards Mount Musa. On the isthmus between Cirali and Adrasan we will stop for the only non-sea overnight stay in our journey.
Day five
We will reach Adrasan – the city of orchards and fruit plantations. Here you can recharge yourself with vitamins from pomegranates, persimmon tangerines…. And of course we are back on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea!
Day six
We will walk along a beautiful path through a pine forest, where picturesque cliffs will give us the chance to admire the sea coast – where the Gelidonia lighthouse, erected in 1936 by the French, lies,. Here we will set up our camp so as not to miss the sunset overlooking the Beshaladar archipelago.
Day seven
Have you ever been to a pirate hideout? On day seven we will go to Pirate Bay, where the ruins of an old fort lie. We will rest in this indescribably beautiful bay and recover with fruits and the salty waters of the Mediterranean Sea. A cozy bay and our tents will make the most pleasant five-star hotel you could imagine.
Day eight
The journey comes to an end at the city of Makvyent, from where we will go back to Antalya. We will spend the evening walking around the old town and the Turkish bazaar – where you can buy aromatic spices, Turkish delights and local souvenirs. In the evening, those who wish can visit the traditional Turkish hammam.
Day nine
It’s time to go home! The journey along the Lycian path is over, but now there are even more reasons to return to Turkey – there are still so many pearls for the travelers to discover in this country!
