The Lycian Way

Lycian Way sign post

The Lycian Way is a long-distance footpath in Turkey around part of the coast of ancient Lycia takingĀ its name from the ancient civilisation which once ruled the area and is approximately 510km long following an historic trade route, mainly along coastal paths heading inland at times through traditional mountain villages and farming communities between Fethiye and Antalya.

Listed by The Sunday Times as one of the world's top ten walks, it was officially opened as a way-marked route for trekking in 1999 under the careful supervision of Kate Clow, the paths are always well marked and regularly maintained. The route is graded medium to hard; it is not level walking and a reasonable level of fitness is required.
