From our base in Beycik near Antalya we are now offering guiding services throughout Turkey and regular treks and day excursions along the coasts and mountains traveresed by the Lycian Way. This latter area is archaelogically also one of Turkey's richest regions, some sites can only be conveniently reached by sea. A gulet cruise allows access to these as well as to some magnificent unspoilt beaches.

Scheduled Trips
The Lycian Way Highlights 8 day trek follows the Lycian Way visiting some of the most interesting areas of the route. It involves some hiking on rough trails and is suitable for the fit walker.
Olympos Explorer is based in the Beycik area - at the foot of Mt Olympos. Each day we have excursions visiting sites of local interest, most days will involve some walking. 8 days.
Our Blue Cruises are cabin based Gulet (yacht) trips based in Fethiye, several departures a week are available of variable length.

All the above are also available as private trips. We have also selected the following programmes as sample private trips that we can organise on request.

  • Kackar Mountains These are aguably the most beautiful mountains in Turkey providing some of the best long distance walking with plentiful wildlife and flora. Mount Kackar is suitable for strong walkers and at just under 4000m is often used as training for Ararat. 4 day trip 9 day trip
  • Tauros, Cappadocia and Mount Ararat Trekking in the Taurus offers a good acclimatisation period before the ascent of Ararat. Both areas have a rich local nomadic culture which add to the interest of both regions. The trek finishes in Van where there is a day to relax by the beautiful Van lake.Sample Trip Details
  • Mount Ararat This trip is suitable for those who have previous high altitude experience and know they acclimatise well. As with the previous Taurus - Ararat programme it includes visits to Istanbul and Van. Ararat Details
    Note: Ararat requires the use of crampons and walking poles but previous experience in the use of them is not essential. In fact Ararat is an excellent training mountain for those interested in going on to higher and more demanding summits such as Elbrus, Peak Lenin or Kilimanjaro.
  • Cappadocia This trip is designed as a short break that can be taken at any time of year. It can even be done in winter on snow shoes! Cappadocia
  • Cappadocia and Taurus This combines easy hotel-based walking through the magnificent and magical scenery of Cappadocia with some more demanding camping-based trekking in the Taurus. The trek in the Taurus is fully mule supported and involves walking from one permanent campsite to another. Details
  • Yacht and Trek This combines the luxury of life on a yacht (a journey referred to as the Blue Cruise or Blue Voyage) with short (generally half day) treks on beautiful coastal paths visiting ancient ruins, churches and other sights of interest along the way. Plenty of time to relax and or swim. Yacht and Trek, Cappadocia, Yacht and Trek.
  • Lycian Way The 509km long, Lycian Way is a trek winding its way through the mountains and coastlines between Antalya and Fethiye. Wild beaches, ancient monuments, beautiful wooded mountains and beaches make this one of the world's top treks. We offer a wide variety of services including personalised guiding and support.
