Rated as one of the top ten walks in the world by The Sunday Times, the Lycian Way is a famous 500km footpath trailing along ancient Lycia's coast. It begins in Oludeniz, Fethiye and ends in Hisarcandir, around 20kms southwest of Antalya. It is easier to start from Fethiye as the walk gets more difficult towards Antalya. Walks are graded medium to hard and attract many serious walkers, who make use of the many hotels, and lodges dotted along the trail. The walk is not level and is mostly hard and stony underfoot with many ascents and descents along the way. It is best to walk the Lycian Way during the Spring or Autumn, when weather is cooler. As the walk is well known, there are signs directing visitors along the way.
Saklıkent Gorge is one of the deepest canyons in the world at 300 meters deep and 18 km long. Formed by mountain water flowing down through the rocks and over throusands of years eroding the stone to produce deep, steep-sided valleys. Visitors can enter the canyon when the water levels are at their lowest duing the summer months. Four kilometers of the canyon are walkable after April, when most of the snow in the Taurus Mountains has melted and passed through on its way to the Mediterranean Sea.
Kas Mountain Biking
The terrain above Kaş is superb mountain bike territory. Streams, canyons, mountain valleys, unknown ancient cities and authentic mountain villages can be seen as you ride through the spectacular scenery. You can find completely untouched areas with varied landscapes close to the sea. The pleasant climate also means that bikers can ride throughout most of the year. In particular, the transitional periods from February to May and October/November offer excellent conditions. You can rent a mountain bike yourself from several places in Kas or book a day tour which usually includes a support vehicle, picnic lunch and bike hire.
