Itinerary

Day 1 : Antalya Welcome at the airport of Antalya and transfer to the hotel in Kaleici, the heart of the old town. Famous by a reputation of resort of choice, Antalya is also much more than that. This regional capital holds one of the most beautiful Ottoman cities possible. You can admire its konaks, old Turkish buildings that are here perfectly preserved. Add to this the fantastic site, to the sea, close to the Taurus mountains that plunge into the Mediterranean, Antalya is one of the most appreciated cities of Turkey. Transfer : 30 minutes Accomodation: hotel


Day 2 - Ovacik to Yayla Kuzdere
To get the lungs working , a good walk down the valley and over a low ridge to the village of Gedelme, and the Caner Restaurant, where you can rest a while. Take your time as the afternoon’s walk is short and gentle, climbing up a good track with ever-more-majestic scenery to the tiny settlement of Yayla Kuzdere, an oasis of green amid the starkness of the mountains. (Medium: 5½ hrs, 17½km, CUSs 525m)


Day 3 - Yayla Kuzdere to Beycik
A glorious, quite demanding day, which takes you up into the mountains on pine needle floored paths to a lonely farm on the saddle below Tahtali Dag (Olympos), before plunging down to the mountain resort of Beycik, and availability permitting, a night in a very comfortable hotel complete with pool. (Hard: 7 hrs, 14km, CUSs 1000m)


Day 4 - Beycik to Çıralı
Another great day, with a gentle descent this morning through pine woods and along an exposed track, though rewarded with views, to your lunch at Ulupinar (the Şelale restaurant has tables set on platforms in a stream and the Havuzbaşi has eating areas high above the gardens and a fireplace, lit in winter and cold weather. The Havuzbaşı is a trout farm, and the food in both places, using locally grown vegetables and fresh fish or lamb, is excellent). Your afternoon, possibly weighed down by an excellent trout meal, is down a pretty valley, before rising sharply to crest a saddle and your first glimpse of flames issuing forth from the soil. A tricky descent (loose underfoot) is rewarded by the true Chimaera – an expanse of open rock seemingly the aftermath of last night’s mass barbecue but in fact a natural eruption of eternal flame – read more in your blue booklet. You arrive finally at the huge beach of Çıralı, and your next night’s stay a moment from the sea. (Easy-medium: 5 hrs, 16km, CUSs 300m)


Day 5 Free day in Ciralı Beach Hotel


Day 6 : Olympus – Adrasan Short transfer by a local car to the end of the beach where opens a small valley and the ancient site of Olympus. The ruins are hidden in the vegetation and you will find the theater, the city gates, mosaics and tombs which are especially characteristic of the Lycian civilization. From the ancient city, a path rises on the north side of "Musa Dagi" (Mount of Moses). In the afternoon, the descent of a very wild valley takes you to the small agricultural valley of Adrasan and its large sandy beach. Swimming and night in Adrasan. Transfer : 5min Accomodation: pension Meal : Morning, noon and evening Walk : + - 800m ; 13,5 km


Day 7 : Gelidonia Cape Since Adrasan, hiking along a coastline increasingly wild and cut to Cape of Gelidonia. The trail is very airy, always above the sea. İn the culminating point, descent of the lighthouse of Gelidonia built in the late 19th century by the French. The site offers a fantastic view of the cape and the "Bech Adalar" off the small archipelago. You reach Karaöz from the cape where the hotel keeper will wait for you to drive you to Adrasan. Transfer :20 min Accomodation: pension Meal : Morning, noon and evening Hike : + 750m; -860m ; 12km
