Enjoy exploring the best parts of the Lycian Way at your own pace from a selection of carefully planned walks of this beautiful region.

  • Enjoy beautiful coastal walks at your own pace
  • Visit the beautiful village of Faralya
  • Explore the stunning lagoon at Oludeniz

Walking in almost guaranteed sunshine brings a whole new meaning to 'Turkish Delight'. Taking a refreshing dip in the warm waters of the Mediterranean will prove irresistible too.

This walking holiday is twin centre-based in a delightful small family-run hotel with swimming pool. It is a great base to explore the trails of the Lycian Way and trail transfers are provided where required.

Your initial base, Patara, is home to one of the most stunning ancient cities in Turkey, as well as the longest beach with huge sand dunes. Not only exploring the beach, you will also discover the old aqueduct and siphon which carried water from the hills and into the city.

Your second home for the week is in the beautiful village of Faralya which is perched high up in the foothills of Baba Dag ‘Father Mountain', overlooking the famous butterfly valley. Your walks here include weaving clifftop paths, together with a visit to the stunning lagoon at Oludeniz.
