Walking Holidays

Here at Lycian Way Fethiye we work with our partner company , Tribe Travel Tours, to bring you daily or weekly walks on the Lycian Way and in the local area.

We also offer custom itineraries for three to four day walking holidays between Fethiye and Kalkan. Please contact us for further details.

When to walk

In general, July and August are too hot for walking. We recommend walking  in spring or autumn, February-June  or September-November, as the weather at this time of year is much more suitable for walking short sections or even the whole route.

What to wear

Walking Boots/Shoes

Getting the right footwear is crucial. It is the difference between having an enjoyable walk or an unpleasant experience. They should have a good strong sole and decent ankle support and be large enough to take a pair of thick socks.

Breathable Walking Socks (Merino wool is ideal, avoid cotton if possible)

Clothing

Thin layers of quick-drying synthetic clothes are better than cotton or wool. Carry a loose shirt or top that you can wear to prevent sunburn.

Walking Trousers – Quick drying with a good range of movement, avoid denim. (Shorts can be worn however bear in mind that pushing through scrub can be  painful).

Sun Hat – Wide brimmed for UV Protection

Waterproof/windproof jacket

Equipment

Rucksack (Lightweight, well fitted, adjusted correctly and comfortable)

Good quality sunglasses – there is limited shade in some sections

Suncream with a high SPF (don’t underestimate how hot the sun can be even in spring and autumn)

Insect Repellant

First Aid kit – blister plasters, bite relief, antihistamines.

Any necessary medications

Bottled water

High energy snacks

Camera

Walking Poles are an optional extra but they will take some of the pressure off your knees, especially when going downhill. Choose poles that are light and strong.

Use good quality gear and don’t bring anything you don’t need.

Whether you want to do a daily or weekly route, we will provide an experienced guide to make sure everyone has the best experience possible.
