About the Lycian Way Hiking Trail
The Lycian Way (other called Likya Yolu) is a popular long-distance hiking trail in Turkey. It starts at Fethiye, then goes 540 km along the Mediterranean coastline of ancient Lycia, and finishes in Geyikbayiri. The Lycian Way finds its way through steep coastal cliffs, high nearby mountains, and rocky Mediterranean beaches. It’s considered a fairly difficult hike because of high summer temperatures, difficult footpaths, and high total elevation gain.
