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.

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.
