Heart of Lycia - 4 days

Overview

 Self Guided Walking on Lycian Way: 4 Days center based in Kaş

Lycia is the name of the region between Fethiye and Antalya in Southwest Turkey, a truly Charming Riviera of the Turkish Mediterranean. The Lycian Way connects most of the ancient cities while providing a true sense of the local life within the region. With its 510 km length in total, Lycian Way was chosen as one of the best 10 hiking trails in the world by the Sunday Times. The 4 day itinerary is based in Kaş, located at the heart of the Lycian Coastline. Highlights of the trip are wonderful coastal views, small streets of Kaş, ruins of Patara, Boat trip in Kekova and swimming in Limanağzı. 

Itinerary

 DAY 1. Transfer.  HIKE Delikkemer - Patara 10 km

Pick up from Dalaman and transfer to Delikkemer (1 hr). Delikkemer is the ancient aqueduct that used to carry the water for Patara, one of the 6 major Lycian Cities. The piping system is still visible at the sight. The route passes by some old olive grooves while giving views of the fertile Esen Valley.  Walking into the ancient city, one quickly realizes the importance of the site with its well preserved theatre, parliament house, main streets and many more. The day finishes with a visit to the 16 km fine sandy beach of Patara, also a marine turtle nesting area. Transfer to Kaş. 

Dinner in a selected restaurant, Overnight in Hideaway Hotel, Kaş

DAY 2. HIKE Bayındır - Limanagzı - Kas 14 km 

A short transfer takes you to the beginning of the hike up on Kaş.  The walk starts from a small hamlet, called Bayındır, and reaches Ufakdere beach with views of the bay from above. There is almost no settlement on this bay. The coastal path carries on through low vegetation before arriving at Limanagzı Bay. This is a perfect spot to go for a swim and give a break. Passing by the ancient rock tombs of the Lycians, the day finishes as you walk into your hotel. 

Overnight in Hideaway Hotel, Kaş 

DAY 3. HIKE Apollonia - Aperlae 9 km - Boat trip in Kekova 

30 min drive takes you to the small village of Kılıçlı to start the hike. Very close to the town is the ruins of Apollonia. For a place in the middle of nowhere, there is a lot to offer within this forgotten site. The stoney path starts going down the low vegetation before meeting with the sarcophagi of Aperlae. The ancient economy of this town was the valuable Tyrian dye derived from a type of marine snail. The hike is rewarded with a nice boat trip over the Kekova sound with its turquoise waters.  Having seen the sunken city and Simena, the boat trip ends in Ucagiz to meet with the car to go back to Kas.

Dinner in a selected restaurant, Overnight in Hideaway Hotel, Kaş 


DAY 4. HIKE Kas - Cukurbag - Phellos 14 km 

The hike starts directly from the hotel. The route goes high above Kas on a nice path zigzagging the mountain slope while giving beautiful views of Kaş. The reward at the top is breathtaking. After a little break, the walk carries onto Cukurbag before ascending to Phellos again. This lycian site upon the mountain will be a surprise with its ruins and views opening for the mountains on the north.  Transfer to Dalaman after the hike.
