The Lycian Way, October 2018

The Lycian Way, October 2018.

Lycia is the historical name of the Teke Peninsula which is the bump on Turkeys southwest coast between Fethye and Antalya. In ancient times there were many small towns and the region was called Lycia. But soon it was invaded by persians, greeks and romans. They have all left their marks.

My hike started from Fethiye and ended up in Geyikbayirinear Antalya. For the most part I follewed The Lycian Way which is marked, although I took some shortcuts. Walked 18 days and covered about 350 kilometeres.
