    Morning orientation tour of Kas followed by a walk through the olive groves to Limanagzi beach.

    We start our holiday with a gentle warm-up day. The morning is spent on an orientation walk discovering Kas, then we can enjoy coastal views through the olive groves on the way out to Limanagzi beach, a lovely strip of beach only accessible by boat from Kas or on foot. At Limanagzi there will be time to relax or have a swim before we head back to Kas by another route, where you may see some rock tombs, a feature of the area. It was a custom of the Lycians (the predominant people of the area between the 15-14th centuries BC) to build tombs for their dead in mountainsides, or at least in high places, as they believed they would be carried to the afterlife by winged creature.There is however also the option to take a water taxi back to Kas.

    Optional daywalk in the hills above the town or optional full day sea kayaking in the clear waters of Kekova Bay.

    Your leader will advise on things to do in and around Kas, including some self-guided walking options. A very popular excursion is sea kayaking at Kekova. Sea kayaking is the alternative way to explore the famous region of Kekova and Turkey's beautiful Turquoise Coast. Our optional guided tour departs from the small fishing port of Ucagiz (approx 45 min. transfer from Kas) to explore the island of Kekova and float over its sunken city. We disembark at the charming hillside village of Simena and stroll up to a superb fortress where we can enjoy spectacular bird's eye views over the aquamarine blue bays, inlets and islands below. We will have a late lunch and then transfer back to Kas in the mid-afternoon. Hotel Phellos or similar

    Cavdir to Uzumlu village walk, following Roman aqueduct, still in use in places.

    The walk starts in the village, taking us past an Ottoman cemetery, then over open terrain with views of the valley and Patara Beach in the distance. The walk continues by following an ancient aqueduct, still in use to this day. Along the way we can fill our water bottles with water fresh from the mountains. We then climb up through pine forests, finishing the walk at the bottom of a small stony track where our minibus will be waiting. A short drive takes us to lunch at a local village, where you can sample Turkish pide (pizza) or fresh trout.

    Explore ruined city of Arycanda; afternoon walk to mountain village of Yazir.

    Today we will travel inland for approximately 1 hour 45 minutes to visit Arycanda, a city renowned in Lycian times for its love of pleasure and merrymaking as well as its tendency to be in constant debt. Arycanda is the most impressive of the Lycian cities and its setting is one of the most outstanding in all of southern Turkey. After visiting the site we will enjoy a delicious home-cooked lunch with one of the local families in the village.In the afternoon we drive approximately 20 minutes to the Ordubek Plateau and begin the 8km walk to Yazirbeli village. This is the highest point of the day, and from here we begin our descent with fabulous views of the surrounding landscape, made more colourful by the surrounding cedar and juniper trees. Walk: Distance 8 km Ascent 98m Descent 672 m Max Altitude 1542m Time: 4 hours Hotel Phellos or similar

    Daywalk in Patara National Park, including the recently excavated Roman port town, and the superb beach.

    We start the day with a short transfer (approx. 40 mins) to Yesil Koy village, where we start our varied walk along the route of an old aqueduct, which, in ancient times, supplied the water to the city of Patara. Patara was one of the most important cities of the Lycian Union and is also known as St. Nicholas' (aka Father Christmas) birthplace. After 9 km we finish our walk at the impressive ruins in the Patara National Park, where you have the option to explore the ancient city, visit the ancient theatre, bouleuterion (Parliament building) and some other remains such as the necropolis. Time allowing, there is the option of going to the seemingly endless beach at Patara for a swim. The soft sand and shallow sea make this a perfect spot for sea turtles to come and lay their eggs. Not surprisingly therefore the beach today is a protected area. Walk: Distance 9 km Ascent 218m Descent 378m Max Altitude 215m Time: 4 hours Hotel Phellos or similar
