The Lycian Way is a 509 km 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 did the challenge with Kat Davis. Read more on her blog www.followingthearrows.com. Kat has also shared her adventures on the Tough Girl Podcast talking about - walking the Camino del Norte and the Kumano Kodo Trail in Japan. Plus bike packing 4,000km down the length of Japan.
