The Lycian Way, Turkey's first long-distance walk, recent changes extending the walk by two days so that is now ends at the famous climbing walls at Geyikbayiri just 25km from Antalya are reflected in the new 2014 edition of this guide, which includes all the route updates. As the route matures, the walker profile is changing from dedicated backpacker to supported trekker, active holidaymaker and enthusiast for archaeology and local culture. The route remains stunningly beautiful, snaking over the steep coastal cliffs, dipping to isolated beaches, climbing through cedar forest. The book contains detailed route and historical site descriptions, altitude profiles and a large detachable map. Route updates, downloadable GPS files, accommodation and transport information and links to firms providing holidays on the Lycian Way are all on the website. The 2014 edition is designed to be used with the new Lycian Way i-phone application.
