Lycian Way Eastern Section Solo’s Hiking Holidays Itinerary:
Day 1 – Arrive at Antalya Airport. Transfer to accommodation in Adrasan
Day 2 – Walk from Adrasan to Çıralı: 6 to 7 hours walking time
A fairly steep climb and descent (approx 800 mtrs) over Mount Moses (Musa Dağı) with wonderful views. The descent through woodland before reaching the ruins and onto Çıralı Beach. Overnight in Çıralı.
Day 3 – Walk from Çıralı to Beycik: 7 to 8 hours walking time
Today’s walk is an almost continuous steady climb. Leaving Çıralı you will make a climb to the Chimera (natural gas flames) on the mountainside. Onwards to the pretty village of Ulupinar with its abundant trout streams and restaurants. Finally upwards to the pretty hamlet of Beycik. Overnight in Beycik.
Day 4 – Walk from Beycik to Yayla Kuzdere: 7 hours walking time (8hrs for the summit)
Today’s walk climbs up to a pass over Mount Tahtalı and then descends to the lovely village of Yayla Kuzdere. It is a mountainous section with some exhilarating views. There is an option to climb to the summit but this takes an extra 3 hours and we advise caution as cloud can quickly cover the summit. Overnight in Yayla Kuzdere.
Day 5 – Walk from Yayla Kuzdere to Göynük Yayla: 7-8 hours walking time
A wonderful day’s hike. The pretty hamlet of Gedelme has its castle ruins and ancient plane trees. The massive trunks of which are 1000’s of years old. After Gedelme you will follow a narrow path before coming to forest path climbing up the hillside. The route then descends through pine forest and opens out to a Yayla (flat green area). The route continues on forest paths and tracks along small streams before crossing a river bed. Overnight in Göynük Yayla.
Day 6 – Walk from Göynük Yayla to Göynük Canyon: 8 hours walking time
A very scenic walk, one of our very favourites. You will cross stream beds and climb through pine forests before descending to a beautiful canyon. The views are wonderful near the summit. Transfer to Antalya Airport or Antalya hotel.

This concludes your solo hiking holiday.
