We spent 5 days in early October hiking the Lycian Way from Oludeniz to Gavuragili and here're our top tips:
1) Instead of basing yourself in one place and making day trips, hike from village to village and make a real journey of the whole walk.
2) We passed a lot of campers struggling with heavy rucksacks in the heat. Instead you could just carry day packs and stay at b&b pansiyons along the way, where breakfast and dinner are usually included in the price. Business is bad there too atm so every guest counts.
3) Carry plenty of water because it gets hot and sources of water can be unreliable.
4) You don't have to be super-fit, just take things slow and you'll be fine.
5) Don't go if you're terrified of bees or wasps - although they're harmless there are a lot of them around!
6) Get the Trekopedia app on your phone - it's got offline maps and GPS.
7) The route is generally very well marked so you'll not easily get lost, though you might end up dreaming of red-and-white way markings like I did!
8) Probably not good for kids unless they're older and like hiking.
9) Don't worry about the 'troubles' in Turkey - the people are very friendly and famous for their hospitality.
10) Learn a few phrases in Turkish before you go as it's harder than expected.
So go for it - it's a fantastic walk with spectacular scenery, friendly people, good food and lots of amazing historical sites to visit. We're already planning a return visit!

Participated in a three day Lycian way hike as part of an Intrepid Tour in July this year. Whilst the weather was incredibly hot this has to be up their as one of the most memorable and enjoyable experiences I've ever had! The walk has incredible views and whilst some is along road sections, parts which are along the cliff and trekking through mountains are just breathtaking. The best part was stopping after each leg (of around 8 - 15k each) and swimming in gorgeous hidden beaches or coves.

We go up early and had a really enjoyable walk before brunch. The markers aren't always easy to find but the path and scenery was good. The bits where i you could take the wrong path are where there has been development to accommodation , whilst the remoter sections are marked better.

We did five days walking part of the Lycian Way. Altay at Self Guided Turkey booked the accommodation and transport. His suggested walks were beautiful. If you like walking this is for you. It was very hot in late June but Altay gave us a route that made the most of the available shade and we started early each day.

Beautiful sunset at Seaview Faralya. They offer wonderful food and accommodation in wooden pods. Hosts couldn't do enough for us. Thank you Ali and Onder Shipley Cepel, we were really impressed. Ali is British married the lovely Onder were great. Give it a try the sunset was out of this world.
