DESTINATIONS NATURAL WONDERS | TURKEY 3 LYCIAN WAY


It would take a month to walk the full 335-mile Lycian Way, which links ancient Roman roads and old donkey tracks, quiet mountain villages and sweeping coastal scenery, on a route stretching from Fethiye to Antalya. Most walkers tackle day-long sections with transport in between, as on solo specialist Friendship Travel’s new Lycian Way walking holiday, which has its first departure in autumn. Founder Colum McLornan says: “Olu Deniz is an ideal base because the start of the Lycian Way is close by. The busy beach and Blue Lagoon are only a 15-minute ride down the hill, but up on the hillside, when


you’re following the ancient mule tracks, you could be in another world.” Book it: Friendship Travel offers a seven-night holiday with three guided walks, flights from Gatwick, transfers and accommodation with four dinners, from £635. friendshiptravel.com


BOSPHORUS


The Bosphorus strait is the dividing line between two continents, splitting Istanbul into its historical and commercial centre on the European side, and residential suburbs on the Asian side. This mighty waterway is the main reason this city, once known as Constantinople, was at the very centre of the Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman Empires, and while it’s now frequented by tourist boats and cruise ships, sailing its wide expanse still feels like retracing the


steps of long-forgotten conquerors. Book it: Do Something Different offers an Istanbul Full Day Bosphorus and Asia Side Private Tour with Lunch from £78. The tour includes a cruise along the Bosphorus, visits to the Spice Market and Beylerbeyi Palace, and a photo stop to see the Bosphorus from above at Camlica Hill. dosomethingdifferent.com

KOPRULU CANYON


This national park offers not only dramatic scenery, its sheer rockfaces towering 400m above the turquoise waters of the Kopru River, but it’s also a prime spot for white-water rafters to brave the currents in one of the best watersports spots in the country. The canyon stretches nine miles, but the national park, set an hour inland from Belek, covers an area of nearly 150 square miles. Expect scenic hiking routes through pine and cypress forests, look out for two Roman bridges so well-engineered they are still in use today, or head to mountain town Selge for more ancient ruins


including a well-preserved Roman theatre. Book it: Tui offers seven nights’ all-inclusive at the 5T-rated Tui Magic Life Masmavi, an hour’s drive from Koprulu Canyon National Park, from £763 including flights from Gatwick departing April 20, 2021, and transfers. tui.co.uk
