8-day hiking holiday Turkey
self-guided with GPS
The hiking holiday in Turkey starts in the coastal village of Fethiye. You stay in a cosy family hotel, run by a Turkish/Belgian family. In contrast to many other coastal towns, Fethiye has not yet been overflowed by tourists.
During the hiking trails in the area you will discover a mix of culture and nature. Of course, the archaeological sites in the area are not missing.
On the first day of your holiday you will receive the necessary information regarding the hiking routes. The routes are loaded on your GPS navigation (of course you can also rent GPS navigation with us). Some hiking trails do not start or end at the hotel but we will provide the necessary transport.
The hikes are suitable for the recreational hiker and go over unpaved, well passable paths.
Hiking in Fethiye
Fethiye is surrounded by large mountains. It is a traditional working city full of activity, a port with fishing boats and a luxury marina. The heart of Fethiye is formed by Paspartur; narrow streets with shops and restaurants.
The archaeological sites are just a few steps away. The rich historical past of this area can be found everywhere in the street image. During this hiking holiday you will discover the most beautiful places of Turkey, near Fethiye!
Hiking routes briefly highlighted
From Ovacik to Faralya (Butterfly Valley)
The starting point of this beautiful hike is just outside Hisaronu, at the beginning of the old Lycian Road. This path lies on the south flank of Mount Babadag with its 1,975 metre high peak. After a few kilometers through the old woods, a beautiful view of the deep blue bay of Oludeniz unfolds. At approximately 800 meters there is a plateau, an excellent place for a picnic. From this plateau you have an excellent view of the valley with many rare bird species. On the way you pass the village of Kozagac and between the limestone walls it continues along small fields to Kirme. A descent to an old watermill will get you to the Butterfly Valley. A very beautiful valley with beautiful views and natural beauty. Here we will collect you for the drive back to the hotel.
Length of the walk: 14.5 km
Duration of the walk:5 to 6 hours
This is one of the most challenging and interesting walks on this peninsula. This hike initially takes you to Afkule, where a monastery has been carved high from the rocks.

You will be taken to the starting point of this walk: an old Mine road, used by the French, until the 60's of the previous century for the extraction of chromium.

Via Fethiye's seafront promenade and over an ancient Greek path, you can walk to the Greek ghost town of Kayakoy.
