Trekking in Turkey – Lycian way hike
Hiking holidays in Turkey, Lycian way – Tahtali. Turkey has firmly established its reputation as a “resort country” with stereotyped “all inclusive” hotels – meanwhile, it is time to replace this stereotype with a much more unique picture! We propose you to go to a fascinating country with a very rich ancient culture, powerful mountain ranges, pine forests by the Mediterranean Sea, deep and turbulent river canyons … For all these natural treasures, the Lycian Trail is deservedly included in the TOP of the most beautiful and popular trekking routes in the world!
Dare to succumb completely to the charm of Turkey – to swim in the wild and secluded sea caves, climb to the top of Olympus, stroll through the ancient ruins and plunge into the life of ordinary Turkish people in small picturesque villages. A small gastronomic bonus – tangerines, pomegranates and oranges every day within reach, fresh sea fish and barbecue … right on the fires of Chimaera, a huge natural “gas stove” with flames bursting out of the ground!
Don’t miss this opportunity and sign up for the most pleasant summer breeze in the middle of the rainy autumn!
This is a full-fledged hike that will require stamina and good equipment from you because we will carry food for several days, sleeping bags, and tents. However, additional skills and special equipment are not required. We will walk 10-18 km a day, be ready to walk 6-10 hours on the most varied terrain. The maximum altitude on the route is 2366 meters, during the passage we will gain and drop at least 500 meters of altitude. Difficult and intriguing!
Overnight stays during the trip are mainly held in campsites in a tent. Camping sites always have all the necessary amenities – shower, kitchen, laundry, etc. In towns and cities, we will stay in small family hotels. We will prepare food together during the trip consisting of balanced meals specially designed for long hikes. The weather in Turkey in autumn is warm, if not hot. During the day it can be up to 30 degrees Celsius, at night not colder than 10 degrees. We advise you to take a lightweight sleeping bag and cushion, trekking shoes with good tread, and don’t forget about sunscreen.
