Tour Itinerary

Day One: Introduction

A warm welcome to the Olympos Hotel from the staff, Solitair representative and your tour guide.  We start with an introduction to your week of stunning scenery along the best walking routes and then there will be plenty of time to get to know your fellow guests with dinner together in the evening.

Day Two: Fethiye –  Kaya Village (7km)

Share a story along the way of our first walk.  From the Aminthas Rock Tombs in Fethiye, we will explore an ancient Roman cobbled road to the UNESCO protected village of Kayaköy.  Before being transferred back to the hotel, we have time to enjoy a traditional village lunch here in Kaya.

Day Three: Kaya Village –  Ölüdeniz (7km)

Today, we are transported to where we left off yesterday, with an incredibly scenic walk through this ancient Greek village of abandoned houses aptly nicknamed the Ghost Village. The path toward Ölüdeniz will offer the most beautiful views of mountains sliding into the beach and refreshing blue coast. The Blue Lagoon, another protected area of outstanding natural beauty, is our last stop where you will really feel a peaceful atmosphere unwind.

Day Four: Hisarönü –  Faralya (14km) 

We drive to the beginning of the Lycian Way to embark on our fourth day of this walking holiday and by now we’re sure the group will have felt like friends forever. Taking in the scenery of Ölüdeniz, where paragliders dot the sky with colour and acrobatics, we pass through the local villages of Kirme and Kozağacı on our approach to Faralya. Settle into a relaxing area gently nestled above the world famous Butterfly Valley.

Day Five: Kaya Village –  Turunç (8km)

Turunç Spring Bay is the destination for today’s ramble through the Green Valley. From Turunç we depart land to give our legs a well-earned rest on a unique boat trip - complete with a tasty BBQ lunch served on board. Visiting hidden coves is full of memories to be made, while a quick splash in the cooling water will refresh your body. Returning to Turunç we transfer to the nearby Bay for a trip to a traditional bazaar, perfect for souvenirs and local delicacies. We travel back to the Olympos Hotel using our transport.

Day Six: Cadianda

From Üzümlü Village this walk will take us to the Cadianda, another settlement built on a hill from the Roman times, where lunch is a fascinating story set nearby the ruins of temples, tombs and an ancient theatre. The panoramic view onto the Fethiye Plain is simply breathtaking as we head back to our Hotel later today.

Day Seven: Option to Explore

As it is our final day on the walking holiday, we would like to present some options for the group to decide where to travel.

We always endeavour to balance numbers, genders and ages within each group, but naturally, we can never guarantee a particular mix of people.
