Group Name: Trek Turkey Challenge
Description: Please join this group if you would like to take place in our Trek Turkey Challenge which takes place from 8-12 October 2008.
The Trek Turkey Challenge takes place along the Lycian Way in Turkey, a famous long distance footpath on Turkey’s south coast which features in many of the world’s ‘Ten Best Walks’.
Ancient Lycia was once one of the richest and most densely populated areas of Turkey and you are bound to marvel at the natural history, ancient settlements and ruins as you make your way through this area.
This moderate trek follows the rugged coast, dipping inland to impressive mountains, summer pastures, deep forests and olive groves. Small bays and stunning beaches greet you around many of the bends and there will be plenty of opportunities for you to take a dip in what is arguably some of the most inviting turquoise waters in the Mediterranean. You can also look forward to an afternoon boat trip one day which allows you to explore some of the ruins and castles located on the surrounding islands.
Accommodation will be in pensions in small white washed villages where you will get to sample authentic Turkish hospitality and get a real taste for local life.
