A Hike From Ovacık To Faralya Along The Lycian Way

It was a weekend of doing something new and doing activities we'd been meaning to repeat for some time but never got around to. The 'something new,' was eating lunch at Izela in the village of Kayaköy. The repeated activities were additions to our hiking and walking in Fethiye page. We walked to … [Read more...]

Cooling Off In The Fethiye Mountains – Black Tree Farm & Cottages

A couple of weeks back, while we were on the way back from our little overnight stay at Chakra Beach in Kabak, we decided to get off the dolmuş in Ölüdeniz, just for a wander around and to check in with a few people we'd not seen in a while. As we strolled along the pathway, past all the bars and … [Read more...]

Exploring Xanthos – A Photo Tour

Our previous post was a series of photos showing different scenes from the site of the temple of Leto, Letoon. This post is another photo story but this time, all the shots are of different areas of the site of Xanthos. While Letoon was the religious centre of the Lycian Federation, Xanthos was the … [Read more...]

Exploring The Xanthos Valley – Letoon In Photos

In Turkey, there are numerous sites that have been awarded UNESCO World Heritage status - and even more sitting on the tentative list. The ancient site of Letoon, paired up with the site of Xanthos, was awarded UNESCO World Heritage status in 1988 and it's right in our own back yard. Well, nearly. … [Read more...]

Fethiye Day Trip: Letoon to Xanthos – A Walk

If you read this blog a lot, you'll know the Xanthos Valley area is one of our favourite places in Turkey, and in the past, we've written about both Tlos and Saklıkent Gorge. Today, we're heading south from Saklıkent and along the Eşençay (the ancient Xanthos River) to the sites of Letoon and … [Read more...]

Butterfly Valley From The Lycian Way – A Photo

It's Friday and it's time for the last Fethiye photo for the month of March. A couple of weeks back, we had a photo of a view of Fethiye marina from the Karagözler - but the week before that, we were finally able to include an Ölüdeniz shot into the series. The photo is an almost aerial view of … [Read more...]

Ölüdeniz From The Lycian Way: A Photo

Friday is here again. The weeks pass by so quickly and it doesn't seem seven days since we were announcing our new look Facebook page by way of a screenshot containing a photo of Fethiye. But that was last week - and this week we have a first for 2012... Throughout 2012, we're (hopefully) … [Read more...]

A Walk From Kayaköy to Ölüdeniz – Amazing Scenery

What better in the cooler Fethiye temperatures than getting out there and going for good wander? We don't walk in the hills much in summer - it's just too hot - so when we do get out there, it always feels great. One of our favourite walks in the Fethiye area is the walk from Kayaköy to Ölüdeniz. … [Read more...]

Trekking in Turkey – Kate Clow and The Lycian Way

We love this photo. I took it when we walked along the (old) first part of the Lycian Way last March. People who've done the paragliding from the top of Babadağ will have seen higher views than this but as you're never gonna catch me with a parachute strapped to me (or a pilot for that matter), this … [Read more...]

How To Walk From Fethiye To Kayaköy

What better on a pleasant sunny day than to get that comfy footwear out and head off on one of the many walks around Fethiye. One of our favourite leg stretches - it's not too far and not too strenuous - is a walk from Fethiye to Kayaköy (aka the ghost village). It's a mixture of tarmac road and … [Read more...]
