This exciting new trek follows the prettiest parts of Turkey’s first ever long-distance footpath - the Lycian Way. The route snakes its way over bare hillsides and through scented pine forests overlooking the blue Mediterranean. It dips down to wonderful hidden beaches where sparkling waves lap smooth sands. We spend the nights at tiny villages where grape vines wreathe the stone cottages. The trek descends to the ancient Lycian coastal fort of Pydnai and the three temples of Letoon, where French archaeologists are re-creating history.
