The Lycian way is a 509 km, 29 day way-marked footpath around the coast of Lycia in southern Turkey, from Fethiye to Antalya. According to the Sunday Times the Lycian Way is one of the ten most beautiful long distance hikes of the world.
The route is graded medium to hard; it is not level walking, but has many ascents and descents as it approaches and veers away from the sea. It is easier at the start near Fethiye and gets more difficult as it progresses. The route is mainly over footpaths and mule trails; it is mostly over limestone and often hard and stony underfoot.
I'm going to be doing the challenge with Kat Davis from following the arrows. You can read more on her blog www.followingthearrows.com and follow on Instagram @followingthearrows. Kat has recently been on the tough girl podcast extra talking about her most recent challenge - Walking the Camino del Norte in Europe, walking the Kumano Kodo Trail in Japan and bike packing the length of Japan, over 4,000km! You can listen to her episode here.
We fly out on the 9th November and start walking on the 10th November. It should take between 25 and 30 days. We will be sharing more on Instagram during the hike. I will also be vlogging the trip and will upload the videos on the Tough Girl Youtube Channel when back in December.
