Day 0
Today's itinerary includes a visit to the museum and an invigorating warm-up trek spanning approximately 8 kilometers. In the morning, a driver will transport you from your hotel to the starting point of the trail. Once your trek concludes, the same service will ferry you to the museum. Following your cultural excursion, you will return to your hotel for a well-deserved dinner and relaxation.
Day 1
Post-breakfast, your day commences with a scenic drive to the trailhead for an 11-kilometer trek through picturesque landscapes.

In the afternoon, you're in for a leisurely respite aboard a boat. Anchoring in a serene bay, you'll have 1 to 1.5 hours to snorkel directly from the boat, immersing yourself in the aquatic wonders beneath the waves. After your snorkeling adventure, the boat will cruise by the submerged island of Kekova, granting you a glimpse of the ancient ruins of the Lycian civilization from the comfort of the deck.

Day 2
Today's journey spans 15 kilometers, a path threaded with the echoes of antiquity. You'll pass through the remnants of ancient cities such as Apollonia and Aperlae, with the chance to witness numerous freestanding tombs of the ancient Lycians.

Once you've completed this leg of the route, a driver will be ready to collect you and transport you to the next hotel along your journey, ensuring you have the opportunity to rest and recharge in comfort.
Day 3
Today is a radial exit, 5 kilometers.

The Lycian Way can be reached on foot from the hotel. If you go in the late afternoon, you can see a beautiful sunset. In the remaining time: relax, walk around the atmospheric Kas and recharge for the next, not the easiest trekking day.

You can also go to the Turkish hammam.
Day 4
On this final day, you will embark on an 11-kilometer trek that promises the allure of untouched swimming havens and the potential thrill of spotting and swimming with sea turtles. Along the path, you'll come upon an impressive viewing platform, inviting you to take in the spectacular scenery.

The trek reaches its conclusion at a peaceful cove. From this point, a boat will whisk you away to the charming town of Kaş, marking the end of your hiking adventure. Should you wish to linger in the serene atmosphere of Kaş, we can arrange for an additional night's stay upon your request, allowing you more time to relax or explore the quaint streets and local culture.
