What to expect during your 8-day Lycian Long Way Road Trekking Tour from Fethiye?
Day 1: Arrival at Dalaman and Transfer to Kayakoy.
We meet you at Dalaman airport and take you to your hotel in Kayakoy. Once arrived and checked in you will have time for a swim in the pool.
Day 2: Ruins and Lagoons of Kayakoy
After breakfast, we start our trekking which will be 8km or 4 miles. We will walk from the door through the adjacent ghost village of Kayakoy, whose original Greek inhabitants were expelled in 1923. An eerie climb past abandoned schools and frescoed churches takes you high above the village for shimmering views of Aegean bays below. After a panoramic picnic, descend through pines to a ruined church on the shore of a crystal lagoon, which is as well a perfect swimming spot to spend some time. We will be transferred back to our hotel from that spot.
Day 3: Kayakoy/Ovacik to Faralya
After breakfast, we start our trekking which will be 15km or 8 miles. Today those are your first steps on the Lycian Way that does take you above perfect beaches past holly oak and strawberry trees. After creating a saddle, you wind through a scented pine forest alive to the drone of honeybees, before picnicking by poplar and plane trees under Baba Dag – ‘Father Mountain’. A steady descent through villages laced with vineyards brings you to your hotel in Faralya in time for a swim and a chilled drink
Day 4: At Faralya
Faralya village is set on ancient terraces above Turkey’s famous Butterfly Valley. Today you have the possibility of an optional 2-3 hour walk down to the shores and to a place where you can swim in the sea. Or relax at the hotel, an environment which has been created with tranquility and relaxation very much in mind.
Day 5: Faralya to Alinca/Patara
After breakfast, we start our trekking which will be 13km or 7 miles. You follow the Lycian Way winding south from Faralya through thyme and oleander-rich terraces to Kabak Gorge on the flank of Baba Dag mountain. A beautiful pine-shaded route leads you through this spectacular chasm before a hillside picnic gives turquoise bay views far below. On reaching Alinca – a veritable eagle’s eyrie – relax with a drink before your transfer to Patara.
Day 6: Patara Beach
Patara was a giant among Roman trading ports, as big as Ephesus, though today only partially excavated. Half buried by giant sand dunes, you can see broken mosaics, pottery, and columns scattered between bathhouses, theatres, and marble streets. Just beyond the ruins is an amazing long beach, perfect for picnics and swimming.
Day 7: Patara to Akbel
After breakfast, we start our trekking which will be 13km or 7 miles. From Patara, you will rejoin the Lycian Way skirting the fertile Xanthos Valley on an easy red earth track through daphne bushes, leading to a fabulously preserved Roman aqueduct with views of Kalkan Bay. After a picnic under shady olive trees, continue through maquis and pines with bee-eaters and cicadas for company, before the descent to a village cafe and a transfer to your in Patara.
Day 8: Leaving Patara and transfer to Dalaman Airport
After breakfast and check out we transfer you back to Dalaman Airport.
