Hiking

Turkey boasts numerous regions that are ideal for hiking, such as Cappadocia, Lycia, the Black Sea and Mount Ararat, among others...

 

CAPPADOCIA - Land of fairies

A magnificent and unusual landscape, shaped by nature and humans: Cappadocia.

Whether accompanied by a guide or not, your steps will lead you among the "fairy chimneys" sculpted by the erosion of volcanic tuff. Many cave dwellings have been carved into this soft rock, as well as troglodyte churches adorned with frescoes from the Byzantine era.

You will hike through valleys with vineyards, orchards, and numerous dovecotes. Underground cities (where villagers sought refuge over the centuries) and a restored ancient caravanserai in Sarihan are also worth exploring in this completely unique region classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The hiking trails pose no significant difficulties and can be adapted to different durations according to your preferences.

 

THE LYCIAN WAY

The Light of the Mediterranean and the Trails of Ancient Lycia

Between Antalya and Fethiye, the ancient kingdom of Lycia welcomes a long-distance hiking trail, the "Lycian Way," stretching along the coast amid ancient ruins (Phaselis, Olympos, Kekova, Kas...). The Mediterranean landscape features tranquil pine forests, wild coves where the blue of the sea blends with the azure sky, pomegranate fields, and flames in Cirali: numerous wonders await you.

While approximately three weeks are needed to walk the entire Lycian Way, hikes of various durations, including day hikes, can be organized according to your availability. Some of these hikes involve elevation changes and require sturdy hiking shoes.

MOUNT ARARAT - The Mystical Mountain

In addition to its dazzling beauty, Mount Ararat is the highest peak in Turkey. Its ascent is relatively easy compared to other mountains in the region, making it a popular choice due to easy access and organizational features. You need to be in good physical shape and sturdy hiking shoes are necessary.
