Between Fethiye and Antalya along Southern Turkey's Tekke Peninsula, or Lycia as it is historically known, is one of the country's first waymarked trails, the 509km Lycian Way. This mountainous route encompasses spectacular coastal views, archaeological treasures dating back to the 8th Century BC and interesting villages with their unique Lycian flavour. During a series of day walks it is possible to discover sections of the route with well preserved Greek and Roman cities and a Lycian necropolis lost in vegetation. Traverse rugged mountain trails to meet the gracious local people, sample culinary specialties and swim in the blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea.
