The Lycian Way is a challenging 540 km (335 mile), 29-day way-marked footpath around the coast of Lycia in southern Turkey, from outside Fethiye to Antalya. The Lycian Way is rated as one of the best (most scenic) long-distance trails in the world. The trail consists mainly of Roman roads, old footpaths, and mule trails, often hard and stony underfoot, not suitable for inexperienced backpackers. Lying between the coast and mountains, it often has steep gradients.
We will fly RT to Antalya, local bus to the start of Lycian Way. A valid passport and Turkish Visa are required.
The group will meet via Zoom to discuss expectations, verify experience, and ensure compatibility. We will meet via Zoom to discuss and finalize the trip planning, here is a sample itinerary. We will hike at least 20km per day carrying ultralight gear, GPS/satellite messengers, first aid, food, and water (~30 lbs each). Cost is dependent on group decisions, airfare ranges from $700-$2000, and camping is free along the trail. Non-camping accommodations, local transport, sightseeing, and food purchased along the trail will likely average $700-$1,000 for the entire 29-day trip.
Only experienced long-distance hikers should consider this trip.

Comment: I have hiked a part of the Lycien Way in a week hiking with another gay group from Europe years ago. I am interested to join you for this almost month long hike, and glad you are stepping up to organize it. It‘s fantastic, one of a kind. Peter Abbott
