Lycia is the ancient name of the Teke Peninsula between Antalya and Fethiye, which stretches along the southern coast of Turkey. The name of Lycia comes from the Hittite word “Lukka” meaning “Light”. The land of light deserves this name with its more than 300 sunny days during the year.
Lycia way consists of a combination of Roman, Seljuk, Ottoman period paths, goat paths and forest roads, which is a long-distance walking route. The Lycian Way is one of the top 10 longest routes in the world, with a 540 km walking track stretching along the coast.
