The Lycian Way, which has been formed by mapping the Teke Peninsula and setting a course on it, is a long trekking road.
The Lycian Way is one of the world’s great long-distance hiking trails, regularly featuring in top-10. It has been created by Kate Clow in 1999, starting from Fethiye and ends in Antalya.
The Teke Peninsula area is the homeland for the ancient Lycian federation. On the route you can see the ancient Lycian federation cities like Patara, Myra, Olympos, Phaselis, Xanthos and Letoon.
The length of the route is 540 kilometres and it takes around 29 days to complete. But it is not a boring journey, you have the chance to try activities as swimming, canoeing or paragliding. Also you always have the chance to use public transportation in some parts, if you don’t want to walk all the way. Especially the Tahtali Mountain part of the way is hilly and rocky; so, it is not available for biking or any other vehicle. But you can enjoy the cedar forests and amazing panoramas during the way.
The region is not cold in most of the year, but it is really hot in summer which can make the trip difficult. The best time for trekking can be spring or autumn. It can also be rainy between November and February. We advise you to control the weather forecasts before you start and decide the best time for yourself.
