We love walking and would love to introduce you some of the stunning coastal sections of The Lycian Way near where we live in Adrasan. The bay at Adrasan is a jewel in the crown of Turkey's Turquoise Coast. There is a 2km long sandy beach with pine clad headlands on either side of the bay and the Toros mountains rise up behind us with Mount Olympos standing majestically in the distance at a height of 2,365m (over 1Ż miles high!) The Lycian Way passes right by our hotel and we are ideally placed to offer a varied walking holiday that is rich in flora, fauna, history and culture.

Most of our walking guests choose a week long self guided package of 6 walks starting from Gelidonya Point in Karaoz and ending at the peak of Mount Olympos. A total of over 100km of good hard walking, stunning scenery and places of historical interest.

However our programme is entirely flexible and the amount of walking and length of your stay are entirely up to you. You may choose the standard package or you may stay longer, or do more walks or less walks. You can choose to the walks in any order you want and you can choose the standard routes or choose other routes to tailor your itinerary to your needs abilities and aspirations.

The map, to the right, shows our walks and as can be seen our programme can be considered as a point to point programme starting in Kara÷z and ending at the summit of Mount Olympos, a potential total distance of approx. 107km of good, hard trekking.

The programme is based centrally in Adrasan. This means that the walks can be done in any order that you choose and in whichever direction you choose. This is not the case with traditional point to point programmes. For example our guests normally find that Gelidonya Lighthouse is much more enjoyable if you start in Kara÷z (west to east) whereas Tekirova to Olympos is much more enjoyable starting in Tekirova (east to west). Some guests choose to do Adrasan to Olympos in reverse (east to west) as this suits their walking style better. The choice is yours!

 

 

Furthermore, because we live and walk in this area ourselves we know many other completely different walks and adaptations of the Lycian Way walks. This means if you want to do some good hard walking but maybe want a day or so that are less challenging we can adjust your programme to suit. If you are less ambitious we can also offer a full six days of walking that will be entirely suitable to your needs. Similarly,if you want to do all the standard programme walks and then some more, we can off you a full programme that you will find both interesting and varied and that will last up to two weeks.

We provide a full support package which includes:-
Pre-walk briefing, packed lunch, drinking water, route guide book, local mobile phone, GPS (subject to availability) and or GPS data and transfers. We also offer guided tours of some of the historical sites and the guide books give information about place of interest and things to look out for. If you like to walk, see green fields covered in wild flowers, explore places with a history dating back to 1,400bc, have chance encounters with wild tortoise and chameleons, walk along beaches used by nesting turtles, wonder at the colours and variety of birds and watch eagles soaring on thermals both above and below you and to meet local people whose genuine hospitality will almost take your breath away, then get in touch with us now.
