Biking Tours in Lycia

Lycia means Land of Light and what better way to experience it than riding beside the glistening Mediterranean or into the verdant foothills and pastures of the Taurus Mountains. We have two itineraries:- Our Two Week Self-Guided Tour Starts with rides around the Dalyan and Dalamn river deltas and then continues along the coast towards Antalya. Vistiing Saklikent Gorge, Patara’s beaches and dunes, the sunken city village at Kekova (boat trip extra), rock tombs and theatre at Myra before going to see the Eternal Flames at Chimera and Olympos. Our 10 Day Guided Tour features 6 bike rides 20-60km each with moderate climbs. We start in a high pasture surrounded by often snow capped Taurus mountains. Then the tour continues along the coast on a similar but less challenging schedule as the self- guided itinerary. A short hike and boat trip over the sunken city in Kekova is included. Well maintained modern 24 gear trekking bikes (Corratec Cross Base) are available for hire. A 16 seater bus and trailer provides full support for bikes and participants throughout the tour.
