The Kingdom of Lycia on Turkey’s Mediterranean coast has seen the feet of many ancient peoples. Today the Lycian Way allows the lover of beautiful scenery and antiquity to experience this ‘country of light’. Experience this journey with Ramblers Walking Holidays. 

Apart from our first and last nights in Antalya, we base ourselves in three centres, Fethiye, Kas and Adrasan, choosing the very best sections of the walk over its entire length from Ölüdeniz to Antalya. In addition we sometimes walk off the trail if we feel the scenery merits it. We have our own coach throughout, taking us to the start and collecting us at the end of our walks. We also have a local guide to share fascinating facts and stories about the flora, fauna, archaeology and history during our walks.

The scenery is very diverse throughout the holiday. The mountains of Lycia rise steeply from the sea, so on many days we will enjoy great impressive views along the coast. Sometimes we head inland along old mule trails to ‘yaylas’, the traditional summer pastures. We walk high above the beautiful bay of Ölüdeniz, pass through mountain hamlets, visit a beach or two and have magnificent panoramic views over the Butterfly Valley.

From Kas we walk inland through ancient forests and along sections of wild and rocky coastline, as well as exploring the ruins at Patara. From our third centre, Adrasan, a boat takes us to Kekova Island and Simena Sunken City. We walk in the Olympos National Park, reaching the saddle beneath Mount Olympos. Starting in Ulupinar we have a walk through lovely woodland and into a picturesque gorge to see the eternal flames of Chimaera.

These are just some of the walks and sights we see on a holiday full of contrast and surprises.

**The first two single occupancy rooms to be booked will not be charged a single room supplement.
