Turkey – where east meets west
Turkey is a vast land straddling the fabled Bosphorus, the narrow strait that links Europe and Asia. Here, travellers, merchants and warriors from across both continents have been drawn together for millennia, leaving their mark on this fascinating land and creating a wonderful mix of history and heritage, of traditions and tastes, of culture and cuisine.
Head to the south of the country and you will find countless relics of these bygone civilisations, as well as idyllic villages, friendly local people and breathtaking views out over the Mediterranean.
Our chosen routes along the Lycian Way not only boast dramatic scenery and spectacular walking, but ancient ruins that serve as reminders of the country's rich and colourful heritage. We explore the western Lycian Way on Seven Capes of Lycia, and the eastern route on The Pirate Coast of Lycia.
