Due to its unique position between Europe, Asia and the Middle East, Turkey is a fascinating country to explore.  It is rich with history, culture and wonderful food. It also has many areas of great scenic beauty and geographical interest.

Walking is a great way to get off the beaten track and get a real feel for this diverse country. Whether strolling through the backstreets of ‘Old Istanbul’, rambling through rural villages or mountain climbing, Turkey continues to offer up new and rewarding experiences.

The vast and varied landscapes of Turkey appeal to all types of walker. In the south classic long distance walks such as the Lycian Way (along the beautiful Turquoise Coast) and Saint Paul Trail (in the majestic Taurus Mountains) pass through local villages, where hikers can stay.

On the Anatolian Plateau walking along ancient pathways through the ‘fairy chimney’ landscapes of Cappadocia is the best way to experience this unique area, while serious trekkers will enjoy climbing to the summit of Mount Ararat (5160 m). There are also many enjoyable short walks, particularly on the southern coast which offers a host of trails through forests and along rocky shores, with stunning views back down to the azure coloured waters that have given the Turquoise Coast its name.

Turkey has several climatic regions but generally the best times to walk are March to May, and September to November, as the temperatures are cooler. In springtime flowers line the trails, in the autumn the trees are laden with fruit.
