HIKING TRAILS TURKEY, the Lycian way ( Hisançandir-Karaöz)

Six day walks of this magnificent trail

Six stages from  this long distance trail, between the cities of Fethiye and Antalya, in the south west of the country. Here you can find more information about getting there, accommodation, maps, tips, advice and possibilities for assistance from a local travel organization.

April 2009: 6 stages from the Lycian Way. The trail was very well marked, probably new white-red painting by Kate Clow and her assistants. This part is, in contrast of part 1, more going inland and gets up to about 1900 meters. The track at day 6 follows cliffs overlooking the Mediterranean and the islands, including the lighthouse, almost the symbol of the Lycian-way.
