Day 1 Istanbul
Discover hidden charms on a walk through Istanbul’s bustling backstreets, then watch the sun set over an impressive Sultanahmet skyline.
Days 2 & 3 Gallipoli Peninsula
Be moved on a walk through the Gallipoli battlefields where hundreds of thousands of lives were lost. Break from the tragic past and snorkel the the waters of the Dardenelles, keeping an eye out for a WWI ship wreck.
Day 4 Selcuk
Visit the historic Roman ruins of Ephesus before returning to Selcuk. Be sure to indulge in an invigorating scrub at the local hamam - it’ll be just the tonic to soothe tired muscles!
Day 5 Fethiye
The seaside town of Fethiye provides a chance to visit the deserted Greek village of Kayakoy. Later, enjoy a stroll along Fethiye’s charming harbour or grab a cheesy pide and head to the market.
Day 6 Faralya
Hike the ancient trails of the Lycian Way, through olive groves and carob gardens, past ancient relics. Visit remote villages and take in stunning vistas of the Mediterranean along the way.
Days 7 - 9 Kas
Trek along pine-blanketed mountain tracks and arrive in Turkey’s chill-out capital, Kabak. Exchange hiking boots for paddles on a kayaking adventure over a sunken Byzantine city, then swap to bikes for a cycle through the Kas countryside, past rustic villages with breathtaking views of the Turquoise Coast.
Days 10 & 11 Pamukkale
Resembling frozen pools and waterfalls, the chalky travertines at Pamukkale are a surreal sight. Explore the ancient city of Hierapolis and maybe bathe in the thermal springs.
