23rd April 2017

We have just returned from an amazing 12 day hiking holiday in Turkey.

We often take hiking holidays, usually self guided, usually in Europe and usually in September. This year we needed to go in April and so were looking at somewhere where we could enjoy spring flowers and mountains that wasn’t too cold! The Lycian Way walk in Turkey by InnTravel seemed to fit the bill and off we went.

The walking was amazing; long days with such varied scenery and surrounded by history and offset by the beautiful azure blue sea. An added advantage was the enjoyment of the spring flowers on the mountainsides – wild cyclamen, poppies and many I don’t know the name of. The area we were walking in was very remote and very quiet. ¬†However, the enjoyment wasn’t just the walking and scenery, but also the hospitality and the food. Simple fresh food set off with fresh herbs, sunshine and fresh air.

We stayed in some wonderful places – look up these 2 as good examples:

Olympos Mountain Lodge

Hoyran Wedre

As you can imagine we came back refreshed and relaxed, although I find my self looking out of my London window and wishing for the blue sea.
