Tour itinerary

Day 1-2

Antalya, Historic Kaleici district, Lycian tombs

We arrive in Antalya and take a bus to the historical part of the city - the Kaleici district. We are in the heart of the colorful sea town, where every corner breathes with antiquity and unusual stories. Explore these narrow historical streets, and enjoy the city beach. In the evening we will have dinner at a local restaurant. Next morning after breakfast we go to the city of Fethiye by bus (approximately 4 hours on the way). From here we go to the ruins of the ancient city of Myra, which existed from the 5th century BC. It boasts Lycian tombs carved into the rocks. These are the graves of local noble citizens which resemble small Greek temples. We also walk through the ancient amphitheater. 

Along the forest road we leave to the abandoned village of Kayakoy. After a few kilometers we arrive at the spot where we will spend the night, just 2 km away from the fantastic in its beauty Oludeniz Bay. We will set up the tents and go to the Oludeniz village in the bay. In recent years, the village has become popular among paragliders. Their multi-colored domes land right on the seafront. The atmosphere of the festival reigns in the sky. You can have dinner at the local cafe, or returning for dinner to the camp. 

Total walking distance per day: 11 km. The ascend is about 350 m.

Day 3

Village of Ovachik, Slopes of Babadag mountain

After breakfast in the camp we go up to the village of Ovachik. Then we go to the famous Lycian arch, symbolizing the beginning of the Lycian path. We walk along the slope of the mountain Babadag (Father-mountain), enjoying magnificent view of the Oludeniz Bay. Paragliders sail overhead in the sky. They started from the top of Babadag mountain and will soon land on the Oludeniz seafront. 

We walk along the springs and water tanks that accumulate water. On the left rise the harsh slopes of Mount Babadag. Occasionally, you can hear stones pouring on the slopes. We stop for the night near the spring.

Day 4

Village of Faralya, Valley of the Butterflies

In the morning we go to the village of Faralya. Two kilometers from the village there is a fabulous lagoon - the Valley of the Butterflies. But getting there is not that easy. The descent runs along a rocky slope with a total height drop of about 300 meters. If you are afraid of heights, you can wait for a group in the village of Faralya, where we will leave our backpacks in a small restaurant.

Due to its inaccessibility, the bay has retained its amazing atmosphere. Capital buildings are not allowed here. Therefore, you can see a few light designs - small cafes. We will walk in the bay and swim in the ocean, and then return along the same path to Faralya. We continue the path and descend to the bay on the outskirts of the village of Kabak, where we set up our camp. 

Total walking distance per day: 13 km. Ascend 600 m.
