Oludeniz & Butterfly Valley
After an overnight stay amongst the evocative remains of Kayakoy, a Greek village abandoned in the 1920s, we hike south up onto the shoulders of Baba Dagi (1989m). Along the way we are rewarded with fine views back over the idyllic lagoon of Oludeniz. Passing remote hamlets nestling under the heights of Baba Dagi, we descend to the tiny village of Faralya, perched on a small plateau above the fjord-like Butterfly Valley.


Time-Forgotten Villages
From Faralya we hike through pine forests and along spectacular terraces, with views to distant villages and across the sea to far flung islands. Following ancient footpaths, we reach the village of Alinca, where we may stop for 'cay' with the villagers. Then, hiking high above the dramatic coastline, we continue towards the traditional village of Gey; our overnight stop. Here we stay as guests in a simple village guesthouse.


Patara, Kas & Kekova
We walk on through stunning coastal scenery to reach the remote fortress of Pydnai whose ancient walls stand sentinel over the golden sands of Patara. We spend a couple of nights here exploring the remarkable coastal landscape on foot. A contouring trail through the Taurus foothills leads to the attractive harbour town of Kas. We hike to the hamlet and ancient port of Aperlae and continue by boat, via the sunken ruins of Kekova, to Simena; a picturesque village accessible only by boat and on foot.
