Mountain bike along the Lycian Way
The Lycian Way is a long-distance trail well known beyond the borders of Turkey, which combines Roman trade routes, old donkey paths in the mountains and cultural sights. The total length is about 510 kilometers along the coast and leads through high mountains and wild ravines past quaint villages. Again and again, the path leads into lovely sea bays, which invite you to relax and swim. We start near Finike in the Southern Taurus and explore in five days of cycling partly very different regions along the long-distance trail.
This stylish, unique tour is characterized by lovely natural landscapes, beautiful beaches, culinary delights and loving people and pleases every biker's heart.
