What to expect

DAY 1

Transfer. HIKE Asagi Kuzdere – Sundance 13 km

The transfer takes you to the beginning of the hike in Aşağı Kuzdere. The route follows a mixture of forest roads and paths through the pines and descends down to Phaselis. Phaselis was once one of the most beautiful cities of Lycia, where Alexander the Great also spent a winter. After seeing the ruins and having the chance to swim in one of the old harbors you can walk into your accommodation, Sundance Camp.
Overnight & Dinner in Sundance Camp

 

DAY 2

HIKE Ulupınar – Yanartaş – Çıralı 9km (B,L,D)

After a short transfer the hike starts with a gentle descent down to the stream surrounded by plane trees. Crossing the stream, the route begins to ascend through the pine forest to a ridge where you will see the flames of Chimera. These natural flames have been burning for thousands of years. Descending back down, the day ends as you walk into your guesthouse in Çıralı. In the afternoon you can spend some time on the wonderful beach of Çıralı or explore the ruins of Olympos.

DAY 3

HIKE Çıralı – Olimpos – Adrasan 15 km

The hike starts directly from your guesthouse and crosses Cirali’s impressive beach to reach the ruins of Olympos. Scattered all around the valley, you won’t soon forget the hidden and mystic setting of these ruins. The route climbs up through a tunnel-like stretch of strawberry trees before reaching the early settlement of Olimpos on Musa Mountain. The path starts descending through the pine forest and reaches the beautiful beach of Adrasan.
Dinner & Overnight in Sinemis Hotel, Adrasan 

 

DAY 4

HIKE Adrasan – Gelidonya Lighthouse 14.5 km

Today’s route is probably one of the most popular hikes on the Lycian Way. Starting from the pension, the route leaves civilization behind for the rest of the day. The path, accompanied by the scent of the pine trees, has wonderful views of the coast. With Susuz Island standing mystically in the distance, the route undulates over the hills before reaching the most picturesque lighthouse of Gelidonya. A walk of another hour takes you to the meeting point with the car. The tour ends as you are transferred to Antalya.
