This large country which spans Europe and Asia is increasingly popular as a tourist destination, but walking doesn't tend to feature as one of the main attractions.
Therefore it was interesting to read about a 509km long distance route called the Lycian Way which runs along the southern coast from Fethiye to Antyla, taking in beautiful beaches and villages as well as historic sites. Apparently you should allow a month to cover the route, although this can be covered a week at a time.
There's lots more useful information on the Lycian Way website, and what do you know, there's now a second long distance route called the St Paul Trail. Both routes were researched and developed by Kate Clow and Terry Richardson, who are now promoting walking in the Kackar Mountains of north-east Turkey. The long-distance routes are signposted and enjoy government authorisation.
