Lycia means the "Land of Light" and it dates back to the 13th century BC. The Lycian Federation was formed of 77 ancient cities, including Olympos, Xanthos, Patara, Antiphellos, Phaselis, Aperlae, Andriake, Myra and Apollonia. Lycia was known in particular for its fierce stance on freedom and independence.
Farvel Travel offers its guests unforgettable trips on the most beautiful parts of the Lycian road.
The hiking route known today as the Lycian Way from Fethiye to Antalya is a marked pathway that passes through the mountains, a distance of around 540 kilometers. In fact, the track is a combination of a number of independent paths which were combined for the first time in the Roman period, creating the network of paths that became the Lycian Way.
