Welcome to Aegean Way Trekking Routes
We are trekking around the Lycian Way which is located at Turkey’s southeastern coast.
Set along the wild Turkish Mediterranean, the 535 kilometre long Lycian Way is an ancient footpath. Trekking the Lycian Way offers a composition of scenic views of the hills, the beauty of the sea and a pint of ancient spirit.
The nature of Lycian way offers an adventurous spirit to explore the region. Hiking the Lycian Way stands for a unique adventure full of motion, pace and the mildness.
While we hike the route, we pass by amazing beaches of Aegean Sea and Mediterranean and mountain villages as well as touristic towns that we can enjoy other activities.
Inhabited since prehistory, Mediterranean coast of south-western Anatolia has been home to the Lycian civilizations starting from the fifteenth century BC. The paths of Lycian Way were used to connect the mountain villages, the coasts and even to reach the ancient capital of Xanthos by the people of Lycia.
Situated at the Mediterranean pinewood forests along the hills and the coastline, the path crosses mountain villages and some touristic towns like Ölüdeniz and Geyikbayırı. (Former is the beginning, latter is the ending point of the main route.)
Walking the whole route takes around a month.
