Arrive in Antalya, one of the most popular resort towns in Turkey. Check into your hotel. We are happy to organize airport pickups if needed.

Day 2

Kas

Drive to Kas - the first highlight of your trip. Firstly, because of the scenic diversity between the deep blueness of the sea and secondly, because of the looming on the horizon, and the often snow-capped peaks of the Taurus Mountains. But above all due to the visit of the Antalya Museum and stopover in Phaselis. Finally, you reach Kas, that has been spared from mass tourism and still has the grace of a pirate nest. Overnight in a lovely hotel.

Day 3

Phellos and Kas

The bus will take you close to the ancient Phellos. Before you hike back to Kas, you will visit the ruins of the city. The trail leads from Phellos back through the picturesque village of Cukurbag, where you can make a refreshing break in the “Cayhane”, the tea garden. We continue effortlessly across a plateau up to the cliffs, overlooking the Bay of Kas. Now follows only the steep but scenic descent to the edge of the locality. Second night in Kas.

Üçağız and Aperlai

Stage one of the Lycian Way. The archaeological site of Apollonia is the starting point for today’s tour. For lunch, you will stop at Yörük Ramazan’s restaurant, located nearby the water. Here you can taste delicious, freshly caught, grilled fish, served with the best potatoes of Turkey. A swimsuit is essential for today because we continues by boat and you will have many swim breaks in lonely bays. Overnight in Ücagiz.

Day 5

Üçagiz

The hiking day begins at the port and leads on a good way to the boatyard of Kaleköy, where the large wooden coast boats are built. Directly eastward the trail leaves the coastline and immerses you in the wondrous mix of meadows and small peasant farms, which are surrounded by densely overgrown bush. The ruins of a castle wave from a near cliff, the vegetation becomes denser then and forms proper avenues and suddenly you are standing before "Smugglers Inn".  A slightly used "pirate booth", located alone on the shore of the fjord-like estuary. Across the bay “Gökkaya”, again uphill through narrow hillside glades you reach the day’s aim; the village “Indisidibi”, where the bus awaits.

Day 6

Adrasan and Olympus

Another stage on the Lycian way - long but highly impressive. This tour is entirely different than the previous hikes because between the two resorts with its wonderful beaches, rises a nearly thousand-meter-high mountain. You have lunch in the shadow of Mount Olympus. Drive to Adrasan for the night.

Day 7

Today the fire-breathing monster Chimera is waiting for you. The eternal flame of Çirali burns since ancient times without ceasing. After a soft hiking route, you descend down to Ulupinar, wherein the karst water legendary good trout are bred and served in little restaurants. In the afternoon, you will have time to enjoy the Adrasan Bay and it’s crystal clear water.
