      Cappadocia and Lycian Way Walking Tour

      This one-week tour is designed for those who would like to enjoy both the beauty of the Lycian Way and the mysticism of Cappadocia. Cappadocia is a volcanic land and the erosion of the “tuff” (volcanic ash) that is abundant in the area has shaped the region. It has since become a refuge for the early Christians escaping Roman persecution. Rich and varied cultural traditions continue to exist in the area, kept alive by the villagers even today. Walking possibilities are endless in the valleys full of cave dwellings and surreal rock formations. Turkey’s first long-distance route, the Lycian Way links ancient Roman roads and Ottoman caravan routes with mule trails and forestry tracks in a 509km walk along the spectacular Turquoise Coast. This route passes through the ruins of many ancient Lycian cities and visits the most worthwhile spots on the coast.

      Trek the Kaçkar Valleys

      This tour takes on the lower slopes of the Kaçkar and can already take place in July, the beginning of the trekking season in this mountainous region. It is relatively quiet and trekkers have a greater chance of observing wildlife than in the more crowded weeks of August. Wildflowers cover every slope and the snowmelt streams gush in every valley. This is a tour for those who don’t aspire to do the summit and prefer to stay in village houses and pensions. July and August are the best times to visit this heaven on Earth. You will walk from one mountain yayla (pasture) to the other and see glacial lakes, flowers and snowcapped peaks along the way.
