Day 2. Trek from Fethiye via Kayakoy to Oludeniz.

Leaving your hotel we walk via the spectacular Amyntas tomb above Fethiye ( optional entrance fee approx. 2€)

Continuing to climb past the remains of the Castle of the Knights of St John, we pick up the ancient cobbled road that connects Fethiye ( old name Megri – Telmessos) and Kayaköy (old name Livissi – Karmylassos) 

This road has a somewhat tragic history, as described in Louis de Berniers’ novel ‘Birds without Wings’, as the ethnic Greeks of Kayaköy were marched down this road before being taken by ship to Greece during the exchange of population between Greece and Turkey in 1923-24.

The stiff climb through pine forest rewards you will excellent views of the Fethiye Bay.

Descending into the plain of Kayakoy we will walk to the hotel where we will stay the night.

From here we trek around the ghost town of Kayaköy ( Entrance fee included).

(For those who have had enough trekking for their first day, they can walk back to the hotel, making a total trek of 9KM 500M Ascent, 300M descent.)

The trek continues to the ridge above Kayaköy then descends on a spectacular footpath with excellent sea views.

We arrive at the Lagoon of Ölüdeniz and can reward ourselves with a dip in the sea.

We then walk the final 2km along the quiet lagoon road to the centre of Ölüdeniz, where we use public transport to get back to Kayaköy.

 

Dinner in hotel included.  Simple hotel with swimming pool. HB

Day 3. Ovacik to Faralya ( Butterfly Valley)

A vehicle will pick us up and drive the short distance to Ovacik, from where today’s trek begins.

 

We start to walk at the official start point of the Lycian Way, the long distance footpath which we will be following for much of the next few days.

The trail takes us to the shoulders of Babadag ( Father Mountain 2000M) with magnificent views of Oludeniz lagoon and St Nicholas' island.  Cresting the pass we trek through villages nestled under the summit of the mountain before descending to Faralya Village, which is perched on the edge of the famous butterfly valley.

We stay in a relatively comfortable trekkers lodge.  Dinner and next day’s picnic included (Swimming pool available).

Day 4. Faralya - Kabak- Alinca- Gey.

Walking straight from the lodge, we climb up to fine terraced land with views back to Oludeniz.  On a clear day, the Datca peninsula, and sometimes even the island of Rhodes is visible.

Skirting above the pristine beach at Kabak village, we climb on an ancient path to a seemingly impassable valley. As the views improve with every step. Cresting to the ridge of Alınca, we can enjoy a glass of hot tea, to soak up the vistas of the ‘Seven Capes’ spread out below.  Those who have had enough walking for today will be transferred free of charge to the accommodation.

We continue to the rustic village of Gey, perched on a headland of ancient terraces.

 

We stay in a hospitable but simple village house/trekkers’ lodge.

Dinner and next day’s picnic included.

Day 5. Gey - Sidyma trek, then transfer to Patara

Bidding a sad farewell to our hosts, we continue uphill through the terraced farmland that creates a amphitheatre effect framing this beautiful village.  We climb through pine forest striking into more open scrubland before we come to the pass which offers magnificent views to the high mountain inland,  we enter a steep but very lush valley complete with the striking red skinned Arbutus trees as we descend to the fascinating ancient site of Sidyma, sharing space with the village of Dodurga.  We will have time to explore the site before meeting our bus to go to Patara.  We will visit the site of Patara, the metropolis of Lycia. many of the buildings were well preserved by virtue of being under the sand dunes.  We will have time for a drink on the beach watching the  sunset before dinner.

Day 6. Optional circular walk at Patara.

Today, those who would like a rest can just walk to the pristine sands of Patara beach!

 

For those who want to walk we pick-up the Lycian way from near the hotel and trek through pine forest to the fascinating Roman engineering masterpiece of Delikkemer aqueduct, a reverse syphon system.  Those who want a short day are transferred back to Patara from here. For those who want a full walk continue around the Yali Peninsula, past various secluded coves suitable for an impromptu dip in the sea.  We then climb to a viewpoint affording us extensive sea views including the 16Km Patara beach and extensive archaeological site of Patara, the Roman Capital of Lycia.

Day 7. Transfer to Sutlegen Village, Trekto Summit of Mt. Bozkaya. Transfer to Kas.

Drive from Patara up past the high mountain village of Sütleğen. 

As we climb on narrow footpath and forestry road, we rise in series through pine, oak, juniper and then Lebanese cedar forests,  just before our final ascent to the bare rock summit at 2050M high.  A relatively short descent to a mountain pasture, we meet our bus again and descend to Kaş, a small but stylish resort town where you will spend your last night in a comfortable hotel with a large pool.

For dinner, we will go into the town square for dinner ( included) and soak up the atmosphere.

Perhaps a last drink in one of the bars with live music will end our Lycian odyssey.
